  • Envirologue: The Agony of Vanuatu and…,

    It's like an echo chamber in here, with every respondent pretty much on the same page regarding the evil carbon dioxide. I used to read Public Address a bit for some interesting viewpoints and articles; not so much these days. Thing is, I don't agree with the AGW mindset. Perhaps because I'm practically inclined, I like to see the facts. There is in fact no empirical evidence for CO2 being the problem it is touted to be, and no statistically significant global warming for two decades. Far too many people are enriching themselves at the expense of others on the back of this scare. Reality tends to show the error of faith based reasoning, even if it does take time, and cause unnecessary suffering, which the policies endorsed by the IPCC have demonstrably done. So let's see how this faith pans out long term. I have learnt that it is a waste of time debating the case with believers.
    McKay had it right:
    "Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one"
