The Catastrophe that is Global Warming...

Let's face it... the science is settled on this matter... the trouble is whose science? As I've looked at who is saying what on this subject, it has become ever so clear that the doomsayers on this subject (read Al Gore and his minions...) have an agenda other than the good stewardship and caretaking of the planet. Look, I'm a Boy Scout and have always believed and tried to practice good conservation and care for the resources God has granted us. But the hysteria surrounding global warming, uh, wait... its now climate change... (hmmm, do you suppose they changed the name because we are NOT warming?), seems to have more to do with money and power (read control) than with actually making our planet a healthy place to live.

I enjoyed the article linked here, written by one of those scientists who believes that the catastrophe is not to the planet, but to society... I agree with his premise.

Oh yeah, there's alot more where this comes from... alot more credible as well.

Combating climate change may not be a question of who will carry the burden but could instead be a rush for the benefits, according to new economic modeling presented at “Climate Change: Global Risks, Challenges & Decisions” hosted by the University of Copenhagen.

Contrary to current cost models for lowering greenhouse gases emissions and fighting climate change, a group of researchers from the University of Cambridge conclude that even very stringent reductions of can create a macroeconomic benefit, if governments go about it the right way.

“Where many current calculations get it wrong is in the assumption that more stringent measures will necessarily raise the overall cost, especially when there is substantial unemployment and underuse of capacity as there is today”, explains Terry Barker, Director of Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR), Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge and a member of the Scientific Steering Committee of the Congress.
