Author 2 thinks it's no big deal.
Having fixed both authors' opinions firmly in our minds, we can now do some eliminating.
Author 1 would be cool with choices (B) and (D), since they both support the idea that
climate change is man-made.
Of course, Author 2 would have a thing or two to say about either choice, so both (B)
and (D) are off the table.
Choice (A) falls on Author 2's side of the fence...
Which, of course, tells us that Author 1 would hate it. Choice (A) is off the list.
Author 2 would love choice (C). He spends the whole first paragraph of his article talking
about how the government should butt out.
But that means...do we even need to say it?... Author 1 would loathe it.
Both authors do agree that the government would take Drastic Measures if officials accepted
global warming as a real problem.
Based on the authors' statements in the third paragraph of Passage 1 and the first paragraph
of Passage 2, we know that (E) is the one thing on which our authors can agree.
Well, that and their mutual hatred of each other.
