The 'consensus' on climate change is a catastrophe in itself - Telegraph

The 'consensus' on climate change is a catastrophe in itself - Telegraph: "As the estimated cost of measures proposed by politicians to 'combat global warming' soars ever higher – such as the International Energy Council's $45 trillion – 'fighting climate change' has become the single most expensive item on the world's political agenda.

As Senators Obama and McCain vie with the leaders of the European Union to promise 50, 60, even 80 per cent cuts in 'carbon emissions', it is clear that to realise even half their imaginary targets would necessitate a dramatic change in how we all live, and a drastic reduction in living standards.

All this makes it rather important to know just why our politicians have come to believe that global warming is the most serious challenge confronting mankind, and just how reliable is the evidence for the theory on which their policies are based."

Worth reading--especially if you think "the debate is over," like Al Gore.
