For those who are climate change deniers the issue is simple: climate change does not exist, or if it does it is not severe and does not affect them. There are narcissistic and self-serving elements to this attitude. The current generation of naysayers do not look to the future.

It’s only 28 pages long, it’s market-based, and it would put money into the pockets of most Americans. This is not the first time that Rep. Chris Van Hollen, a House Democratic leader from Maryland, has made the point that the best climate-change policy is not complicated. He introduced a similar plan in 2009. The underlying logic is older still: Since the beginning of the climate debate, mainstream economi...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
