A brilliant concatenation… [ooooh big word – would be a good Scrabble score if someone had already put down “nation” 🙂 ]… of facts.
Reminds me of my favourite George Monbiot quote:
“It is hard to convey just how selective you have to be to dismiss the evidence for climate change. You must climb over a mountain of evidence to pick up a crumb: a crumb which then disintegrates in your palm. You must ignore an entire canon of science, the statements of the world’s most eminent scientific institutions, and thousands of papers published in the foremost scientific journals. You must, if you are David Bellamy, embrace instead the claims of an eccentric former architect, which are based on what appears to be a non-existent data set. And you must do all this while calling yourself a scientist.” George Monbiot (10 May 2005)
Very powerful facts. Thanks, Paul
There are really only two valid questions in the global warming discussion.
1. By what authority can governments choose and enforce a policy of climate change? (Forget whether they choose the ‘right’ way to override nature.)
2. At what cost?
Until those two questions are addressed with answers other than today’s, which are:
1. By continuous and overwhelming force.
2. At ANY cost.
… the parameters for a solution are simply unrealistic. A dream issue for academics and politicians and the corporations that own them.
The time we need to worry is when the climate STOPS changing.

Good questions, Jeff … thanks 🙂
Here is a link to a site which deals in the specifics of the politics of climate change:
