Climate change: the divestment of the future

Good article here in the Wall Street Journal, but it is behind a paywall. This scholar at UC Berkeley declares the ‘global warming’ agenda is on its last gasp, as revealed by proponents connecting their cause to the ‘social justice’ agenda. Scientifically, it was dead decades ago, but now its politically dead.

“Scientists who are genuinely worried about the potential for catastrophic climate change ought to be the most outraged at how the left politicized the issue and how the international policy community narrowed the range of acceptable responses. Treating climate change as a planet-scale problem that could be solved only by an international regulatory scheme transformed the issue into a political creed for committed believers. Causes that live by politics, die by politics.” ~ quote from the article in Wall Street Journal by Steven F. Hayward, “a senior resident scholar at the Institute of Governmental Studies at the University of California, Berkeley”

Above quote is from a good article here on Wall Street Journal, June 4, 2018.  

Or the WSJ article is here but not behind a paywall:
The General Accounting Office of the U.S. government (GAO) documents the extent of the waste by the U.S. government.
” Federal funding for climate change research, technology, international assistance, and adaptation has increased from $2.4 billion in 1993 to $11.6 billion in 2014, with an additional $26.1 billion for climate change programs and activities provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009. As shown in figure 1, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has reported federal climate change funding in three main categories since 1993:
• technology to reduce emissions,
• science to better understand climate change, and
• international assistance for developing countries.”
