Gil, Lord Monckton is a climate denier and a fool. He is funded by oil and gas interests to run around denying the reality of anthropogenic climate change. If you don't like the proposed solutions to Climate Change, then please get involved and suggest other solutions. Putting around more of the deniaist propaganda does not do anything good for your credibility on this issue. Take care Gil. Ad Astra Per Aspera, Kevin
Kevin,Lord Monckton may be a fool, and so may I. But here's my hunch: Al Gore is our age's Paul Ehrlich Pied Piper, and if we follow him we'll end up doing almost as much damage to our civilization as the population bomb crowd did; the latter having very likely left Europe incapable of sustaining Western civilization.You ask for suggestions as to solutions. Hindsight is 20-20: my suggestion to the population bomb crowd -- if I had had any sense at the time, which I didn't -- would have been to ignore them. If we had taken that advice at the time, about a billion babies would not have been killed in their mother's wombs. I could be wrong about Gore and global warming; it wouldn't be the first time. If I am, I'll eat copious servings of crow and several helpings of humble pie for dessert. But given the population bomb metaphor, I would far rather err on the side of caution, especially now that abundant evidence is surfacing calling many of the premises of the global warming analysis into question. Keep the crow on the back burner, just in case.
Gil, Ok, I'll keep the raven stew on simmer for whomever is wrong here. I don't know that this is similar to the Population Bomb scare. I will take an action to go research what was said then and what was predicted and the results from actions based upon the predictions. My ignorance, my problem, so I'll look into it and see if I find similar concerns. Take care Gil. Ad Astra Per Aspera, Kevin
Gil, I thought the name Paul Ehrlich sounded familiar but I did not put it together. Must be the cold meds. :) I happen to agree that a global reduction in birth rates is a prudent thing. The Roman Church's insistence that not only abortion but all artificial contraception is wrong puts more of a pressure on places that are already in trouble. So pointing to Ehrlich is probably not a great example of hysteria in science. Seems to me he knew what he was saying. I suppose this is yet another thing about which we will not agree. Take care Gil. Ad Astra Per Aspera, Kevin
