    by climate change.

    It's not complicated. Climate change happens because the entire planet earth can't accept one single extra molecule of greenhouse gas without increasing global climate change.

    Not one. Not anywhere on earth.

    There is nothing about American conservatism that is able to accommodate a hard limit of zero.

    Conservatism is the philosophy of minimizing government involvement in society. A hard, absolute limit of zero in any measure affecting society means that every activity that might increase that measure above zero, needs government to prevent it unless a compensating correction is found.

    It requires maximizing government involvement in society. So as long as government remains democratic, retains any ability to serve the people at the cost of private power, conservatism must deny climate change at all costs.
