member TimG, I kinda recall your brazillion posts over the years touting economists/engineers as the true & ONLY arbiters in position to determine policy related to climate change. If you're now suggesting economists can't predict shyte...
What I said is true. Climate scientists have nothing useful to contribute when comes to deciding what we can do at a price we can afford to pay. Engineers and economists can contribute to that discussion. But deciding what price we can afford to pay today is different from making a gazillion guesses and assumptions and using them to make claims about a specific future cost in 2100. The latter is nonsense because the chances of the various assumptions turning out to be reasonable is infinitely small.
