“I won’t pretend that I get standing ovations,” joked Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who was a staff economist for President George H.W. Bush and served as chief economic adviser to McCain’s campaign.

He spoke Tuesday to a gathering of New Hampshire businesspeople at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College in Manchester. The title of his Saint Anselm talk, “Impact of Federal Climate Policy on Business and the Economy,” sounds like a businessman’s attempt to ward off regulation.

However, Holtz-Eakin actually argued businesses should support a hugely expanded, nationwide version of RGGI, New Hampshire’s auction-based regulatory system designed to control CO2 emissions.

“We have experience in Europe, we have experience in RGGI. We should build on that experience,” he said in a telephone interview last week.

There is a reason for politics. Those who cannot do science go there. (Actually, those who cannot do science also go into “climate research”.

That’s what we physics types do to the D students who didn’t get the hint to go to a “studies” major.
