In other climate news, it seems that Global Warming causes most MSNBC viewers to not think that Global Warming is very serious, because Science®!
While we are on the subject of weepy Bill’s MSNBC article, I note there is a poll at the bottom of it asking this:Even the moonbats aren't buying the scare. Maybe because nobody is buying it, and for quite good reason:
No: 2,718 votes Yes: 947 votes I am not sure: 91 votes
The latest report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is due out next week. If the leaked draft is reflected in the published report, it will constitute the formal moving on of the debate from the past, futile focus upon "mitigation" to a new debate about resilience and adaptation.Good idea, that. Because the alternative is, well, absurd:
So the mitigation deal has become this: Accept enormous inconvenience, placing authoritarian control into the hands of global agencies, at huge costs that in some cases exceed 17 times the benefits even on the Government's own evaluation criteria, with a global cost of 2 per cent of GDP at the low end and the risk that the cost will be vastly greater, and do all of this for an entire century, and then maybe – just maybe – we might save between one and ten months of global GDP growth.Err, because Science®? Get offa my lawn, warming boy.
Can anyone seriously claim, with a straight face, that that should be regarded as an attractive deal or that the public is suffering from a psychological disorder if it resists mitigation policies?
