This is a perfect example of why it is so difficult to have a sensible discussion on this topic.

First: I have never said that AGW is not occurring yet you repeat this nonsense because it allows you pretend I am more unreasonable that I am and provide an excuse so you can refuse to to look at the arguments I actually make.

Second: how often do you take the predictions of 'experts' as truth when it comes to economics? Most people do not. Yet all of the claims of consequences from AGW are based on economic computer models. Yet people like you seem to expect people to treat these predictions as "truth" simply because the byline says 'climate' instead of 'economics'? Why should I treat the opinions of self defined experts as facts?

First, the arguments you attempt to make seem to simply contradict that you do believe the scientists who study climate science. And trying to conflate economics to climate change isn't much of an argument. We all know that economic predictions are all over the map and based largely on guesswork. Hard to predict how and when and why people will open their wallets for instance. Science is more based on what is actually happening. And with climate science  for instance, it's observing  satellite photos which show how much of the arctic ice cap is not there any more, or how fast the Greenland glacier is melting. None of that is not based on speculation. it's based on fact. As I previously said there are some differences among climate scientists as to best methods for trying to fix the problem, but there is consensus that it is happening.
