Re: “Climate proposals need better cost analysis”:

Climate-change mitigation must be seen as investments that will have good returns.

Yes, the different Washington state proposals need to be evaluated to see which give the biggest bang for the buck. But we really have no choice. We need to act on this emergency.

The federal government can deficit spend to mitigate climate change. It deficit spends to give tax breaks to the very wealthy. It can deficit spend to save us all from climate chaos.
