Casual insanity from Steve Chapman at Trace amounts of CO2 might cause Civil War general Philip Sheridan to prefer living in hell rather than in "all sorts of places that once had congenial climes"?

How to Get Rich and Combat Global Warming -
[Steve Chapman] A carbon tax, done the right way, is the closest thing you can get to a panacea. Refusing to enact it is like throwing out a winning lottery ticket.
Gen. Philip Sheridan, if he were alive today, would have even more reason for his stated preference: "If I owned hell and Texas, I'd rent out Texas and live in hell." [So it so hot in Texas in May 1865?  Why?] Before long, he might prefer the fiery pit to all sorts of places that once had congenial climes.
...A carbon tax, by contrast, would discourage something we don't want: harmful emissions that linger in the atmosphere for centuries.
CO2 Science
...He finds that the RT [residence time] for bulk atmospheric CO2, the molecule 12CO2, is ~5 years, in good agreement with other cited sources (Segalstad, 1998), while the RT for the trace molecule 14CO2 is ~16 years.
