“Ignorance is not a reason to act.”

“Somehow we have developed the idea, in the face of all evidence, that there is no way we can adjust to small, subtle changes in the climate. As technology increases—increases aided by fossil fuels—our ability to adapt gets better. Even if temperatures “soar”, as predicted, a few tenths of a degree over the next fifty years, surely it makes more sense to mitigate against these changes, rather than to hand over to complete control of the economy to the government?”…

“Once governments claim there is a “problem” (and that they are the only ones capable of “solving” it), that “problem” is never allowed to disappear.”

“There hasn’t been, according to satellites and taking into account the uncertainty in measurements, any warming for two decades. But this reality means nothing. There is a “problem” to be solved.”

“Reality is scientists do not know what effect mankind has on the climate. But this reality means nothing. There is a “problem” to be solved.”

“Having a world treaty that insists there is global warming means global warming will never disappear, even if GAT [Global Average Temperature] plunges and we enter (early) the next glaciation. Dangerous warming, even then, will be said, by policy, to be just around the corner. It will also be said that it’s actually there, but we can’t see it because it is being masked by some other “problem” that government must solve.”

“We know this because the government has already attacked scientists who dared point out some of the realities mentioned.”…
