    Nice to see the ‘not proper socialism’ argument addressed. But I have to correct the claim that CO2 is a pollutant. We want to have some CO2 in the atmosphere, more than in 1820 certainly – the optimal amount to be determined using pricing would be nice. CO2 is of course a greenhouse gas, but it’s not a pollutant.
