  1. Ridley is right. All of the predictions made by the alarmists have turned out to be wrong so far so it should not be a surprise that there will be little or no damage from a slight warming if it ever shows up. And isn’t it about time that AEI started to argue that research should be left to the markets rather than having it be driven by government planners?

  2. The author points out the climate change policies are more destructive than climate change, and the takeaway from Jimmy P. is that we should institute a carbon tax?

  3. Dear Al Gore,
    I’m tempted to say you’re a moron for your LIE about “global warming” but I guess it was genius to get all the lemmings and even the fraud-in-chief to go along with the lie so you can MAKE millions of dollars off the SCAM.
    You still are TOTALLY DISGUSTING and you’ll get what you deserve (which isn’t good) eventually.

      He belongs in jail.

  4. Climate model predictions have turned out to be wrong on the conservative side — that is to say, we have blown past all of the worst-case scenarios.

    This present study of course mentions that it is highly uncertain due to the unknown amount and effect of the aerosols China is pumping into the atmosphere.

    In the meantime, the jet stream grows ever more crazy, as does the weather.

    Note that the effects of adding CO2 are not linear.

      Get an extinguisher quickly; your pants are on fire.

    Temperatures have not risen past 1998 levels. The predicted location of major warming, at about 30,000 ft. above the equator, shows no sign of the predicted “hot spot”. And most damaging to the warmunists, the predicted increase in worldwide humidity – caused by CO2 warming – has not happened. In fact the humidity at the hot spot altitudes has been going down since 1948. Carbon dioxide concentrations have already done 95% of the warming they are theorized to cause. Sticking to the failed GW theory is getting harder and harder to rationalize.

    How about skip the carbon extortion scheme, deregulate the energy business, and mandate that federal government get out of the land owning/land confiscation scams?
