His using what procedure? Publishing pdf on vixra? A site where you can publish pretty much anything? A site created because arxiv's condition of at least having some academic affiliation and moderator's review was too much?
Linking a pdf claiming to disprove any law of physics on vixra is pretty much a gold standard of lunacy and pseudoscience. 
Simple - because this is science soup, not pseudoscience soup. Hence electric universe lunacy has no place in it, while climate science has.

How much will it cost to mitigate climate change?

Our potential mitigation options are ordered from left-to-right in terms of cost (getting progressively more expensive as we move to the right).[...]

You will see that many options to the left-hand side of the curve have negative costs. Negative costs indicate options which would actually save money. These are typically related to energy efficiency or land management projects which would provide an economic return over the longer-term.
