Let me start with this...
Quote:
Nearly 3 in 4 Americans, including a majority of Republicans, now agree that climate change is happening

They're just going to quietly start believing in climate change...?

As if they hadn't been making fools of themselves for completely denying it.
Quote:
Both ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips have lobbied in favor of a proposed carbon tax

It's only when lobbyists start whispering in their ears that they begin to believe.
Quote:
“They want a sustainable economy,” says Curbelo. “They want to achieve that in a way that doesn’t bankrupt them.”

We all want a sustainable economy and don't want to bankrupt them. But they gotta stop the coal mining and oil drilling and move into providing clean sustainable energy. We know it's the future, they know it's the future. It's not like we really have a choice in the matter.
