You’ve responded to everything but my point, so allow me to make it clearer.

Politicians are bad at solving problems, because it’s not their job to solve problems (usually) and they are swayed by ideology when they do solve problems. Climate change isn’t really an ideological problem, so applying ideologies to it is unhelpful.

However, very few scientists and developers will have biases. They may interpret things differently, but they are good neutral problem-solvers, because it’s their job to be.

We don’t want scientists and developers telling us how to solve climate changed, because that’s not their job. However, the framework they use to solve their problems in their fields is useful because it is tried and tested, and neutral.

We can, therefore, use this framework in the political arena in order to solve the neutral problem of climate change.
