AGW: What should we do about it?

Interesting way to look at the AGW issue:

Climate as an Indicator of Faith in Government » The Antiplanner
In short, the real issue is not, “Is anthropogenic climate change happening?” Even if they could decipher the science behind the debate, which few of them can, the answer to this question doesn’t even matter to either progressives or libertarians.

The real issue is, “What should we do about it?” Progressives want big-government solutions because they believe in such solutions with or without climate change. Libertarians oppose such solutions because they know government does far more harm than good even when the original intentions are sound.
