If I could work all this out on the basis of the evidence that scientists were producing then why couldn’t the government? That is the question that needs answering, except there will never be a reasonable answer to that. Only wilful blindness can explain the government’s inaction.
Not that I’m saying that the P³ is right of course. But assume and an alternative explanation is possible. Which is that governments are shit.
Which is why we don’t want governments to be doing things. The surprise being that the P³ never can bring himself to make that logical leap.
