Don’t let anyone tell you that the science is settled on AGW. Judith Curry has an interesting post on just what might be causing CO2 increases other than mankind. Hell, even I was convinced that man likely caused CO2 increases. It appears that there is some evidence that the CO2 rise may not be all completely our fault.
The moral of the story is, we don’t really know a lot of things about AGW to enough certainty that any reaction is justified. We don’t know enough about the consequences of our reactions to know if they are helpful either. See the anti-incandescent light scam for example. That doesn’t stop the anti-prosperity forces from wanting the solution anyway. You might one whom agrees with the ‘solutions’, but be careful of the definition of the problem.
