In a last ditch attempt to save his tortured simile between reducing GHG emissions and braking a motor vehicle, Andrew Coyne offered the following:
My point wasn't that intensity reductions necessarily imply absolute reductions. My point was that absolute reductions necessarily imply intensity reductions.
To which the brave Canuckistan responded:
except they don't. you could just mandate an absolute reduction forcing companies to reduce production. however, no sensible people are arguing for that.
Exactly. And Andrew, dude, leave the poetry to Shakespeare.
