The Global Warming Crowd Goes Delusional
I want to thank the North Carolina reader that brought this to my attention this morning. Two words come to mind. One is the obvious, "delusional." The second is, "sad." It is just sad that there are people who, as the case for catastrophic global warming collapsed, feel the need go against the science and publish an article that is nothing but hype.
Environmentalist Dr. Bjorn Lomborg calls articles like these, "climate porn." He points out that even the United Nations, in its assessment of the economic effects of global warming, says "The impact of climate change will be small relative to the impacts of other drivers. Changes in age, income, technology, relative prices, lifestyle, regulation, governance and many other aspects of socioeconomic development will have an impact on the supply and demand of economic goods and services that is high relative to the impact of climate change."
There seems to be a subset of people who are only happy when they are scared. That is all this article is. Nothing more.
