He might just be the sort who would like that sort of thing. In any case, I do not want to do Satan's work for him.

If people are really concerned about carbon buildup in the atmosphere, then why are they not putting their resources into planting trees? Trees sequester carbon. There have been other proposed solutions that do not involve government intervention.
I am so sad that I'm finding so many occasions when the word "Orwellian" fits so well.

It seems to me to be a very human thing to believe that what seems obvious to us is obvious to anyone who will just look. I think that leads to people deciding that those who disagree with them must be stupid or evil or both. I think it would be useful to put more effort into trying to see the others' perspectives and jut how different the world may look to them. That might help us communicate with them better, and show them that they are wrong and we are right :).
The Orwellian logic is, "If you don't subsidize my chosen behavior, you are imposing your beliefs on me." It is a sad commentary on our country that it gains such traction.
So the government will take responsibility for their lives so they don't have to.
Q: How many politically correct people does it take to change a light bulb? A: That's not funny!!
Jesus met people with mercy and then called them to radical repentance. Recently in church we read about a terrible sinner who climbed a tree to see Jesus. Jesus was kind and accepting of the man, and inspired him to radical change of his behavior. "For the Son of Man came to seek out the lost." (quoting from memory; don't shoot me if I get a word wrong).
