Clean Air Act increased CO2

That’s what we’re beginning to realize, according to a recent post at Grist:

Suppose you want your kids to eat healthier. Which is the more effective approach? (a) Tell them they can only have one scoop of ice cream with dinner, or; (b) Tell them their meal cannot exceed 10 percent ice cream?

Option A clearly limits their ice cream consumption. Option B most likely leads to fat kids, who quickly figure out that if they can scarf down a few more bites of spaghetti, they’ll get a pro rata increase in their ice cream allowance. The Clean Air Act takes the fat kid approach.

Some pretty amazing wonkish blibbering is found throughout the piece. Reading it is a great investment of your time.
