» Upcoming Climate Talks from TruePress
Clive Davis links to an overview by the BBC on upcoming climate talks and current state of play of the science and greenhouse gas emissions. One excerpt; Broadly, the ex-Soviet bloc countries are the ones where greenhouse gas production is going dow... [Read More]

» SHOW ME THE SCIENCE! from Right Wing Nut House
Well, this is more like it. This appears to be the kind of hard data so sorely lacking in the debate over whether or not man is making a significant impact on levels of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere: Researchers have recovered a nearly two-m... [Read More]

How could the US pull out of a treaty that it never ratified to begin with.

Well, I suppose "process" is a looser term than "treaty".

Rob "Cynic" Read

When Kyoto falls apart more publically, do you think we shall see the MSM praising the Clinton regime's foresight?

Or is that just TOO cynical?

The economic effects of a crash program to cut CO2 emissions are too dire to allow that to happen.

That's the dirty secret that no environmentalists want to admit. The Kyoto treaty wouldn't affect the worst polluters but it would hurt the developed nations and product little or no change in the CO2 levels.

Whether we like it or not, we're in the midst of a big experiment with our climate, but remember that the earth has been through it all before. People adapt. Our prosperity may be destroyed by rising sea levels, but whatever happens, we will survive. I predict that we'll figure out how to tap the methane hydrates on the ocean bottoms for fuel. If we don't they'll eventually be released into the atmosphere.

I'd be more impressed by the claims of global warming if they were based on actual, physical models rather than computer ones, but so far physical models like the Biosphere haven't shown that we know that much.
