Those who don't outright deny the existence of human-caused global warming often argue we can't or shouldn't do anything about it because it would be too costly.

I think the debate is whether then whether then a state-centric structure of world order can surmount the limits of national interests to undertake policies that promote the human interest in relation to global warming. The question is can the national government force the states to do something, or can a "world government" force the US to do something to build alternative sources of energy, and what if the solution they adopt is nuclear? Would you still support the program, or would you be the dissenter?

The current economic view is that the environment is an externality. This of course is completely backwards, a functioning ecosystem (or as we used to call it, nature) is what allows any form of economic activity to take place at all...
