More betting on global warming

Here's an interesting video here from Mark Boslough (of "pi = 3" fame, among other things).

It is interesting that people from as diverse standpoints as Ross McKitrick can also call for a tax that depends on the temperature rise - not quite the same thing as the bonds that Mark Boslough was describing, but not a million miles away either. Of course the devil is in the details, such as the level of payment/tax required.

Seems to me a tax linked to past temperature changes could become the dictionary definition of closing the stable door after the horse has bolted.

On the other hand, it would create a huge financial incentive for improvement of decadal prediction capabilities in order to predict taxation.
