"Chemotherapy For a Cold"

Wall Street Journal, David Klein
Matt Ridley has an insightful piece on the Op-Ed page of the Wall Street Journal about global warming. The entire piece is at the link and I wholeheartedly recommend reading it. His final paragraph:

Almost every global environmental scare of the past half century proved exaggerated including the population "bomb," pesticides, acid rain, the ozone hole, falling sperm counts, genetically engineered crops and killer bees. In every case, institutional scientists gained a lot of funding from the scare and then quietly converged on the view that the problem was much more moderate than the extreme voices had argued. Global warming is no different.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
