Global Warming Hysteria.

Here are some great columns out today responding to the global warming hysteria.

George Will

Wall Street Journal

Canada Free Press

All have differing points to make about global warming hysteria. The Canada Free Press article is especially refreshing.

This Boston Globe Column is the typical hysteria. Note, that no where does the article talk about the costs of trying to "fight" global warming - something George Will wonders about in his column above.

We all know the media over dramatizes and over criticises everything... they refer to George Bush as Hitler or say Bush is taking away all freedoms, etc... I wonder if they are applying this same sense of reason and rationality to their global warming reporting?

Even the state of Minnesota thinks it should "do something" about global warming, probably by trying to prevent us from driving our automobiles. And I know that reason, logic and facts have no bearing whatsoever on this debate, but I would hope that we would frame this legislation in such a way that the exact reduction in global warming we could expect from this new law would be clearly spelled out. Don't worry, some DFL legislator to pull a number out of... er, ah... the air.

If Global warming were true on a statistically meaningful level, we should all get down on our knees and thank God for all the benefits it would bring.

True, if global warming is to warm up much of the land under permafrost, we will need all the extra CO2 for the plants that will be growing there. Plus we will need a lot more animals to feed off all of the new plant life... but I digress...

Which came first, the Co2 or the warming...? Hmmm

Scientists will not even say that CO2 is the problem! H2O is a much more effective greenhouse gas, and there's a lot more of it. What happens if we "control" the wrong thing? That's why I suggest that, before we "do something," we be told exactly what the positive effects will be.

Remember all that stuff about nuclear winter? I think there's a solution here!

The basic trick is to set off just the right number of nuclear weapons in just the right place to put precisely enough dust in the air to offset the CO2.

What we need is a merging of environmental and military policy.
