I find it truly alarming how much this posting and its attached comments distort the scientific consensus on the human influence on climate change. While there is debate on the degree of the problem, most scientists agree that the problem is very serious and urgent. The potential scale of the problem undermines the case for a wait and see approach. All of the world should focus on creating efficient and sustainable living for the future. The free market should serve this interest. Cap and trade isn't the best solution. I agree with this. The best solution would be to pour more research money into solar and wind and create new jobs for the energy sector. Infrastructure cannot be outsourced. It must be done locally. New infrastructure would allow for new competition in the energy sector, which is supposed to be good for the economy, and would simultaneously address the concerns regarding outsourcing. Hopefully, the taxes off any cap and trade policy would eventually go toward this type of purpose, so the spending doesn't come out of deficit financing, but I doubt that this will happen, given the power of the special interests here.

Everyone acknowledges warming, but there is not consensus on the issue of Man-Made Global Warming. The scientific community is currently moving away from the CO2 theories, as the Temp. CO2 relationship cannot be explained. It is becoming more obvious something else is driving our temperature. The most likely culprit is solar activity. Cap N Tax, cash for clunkers or windmill farms aren't going to do a thing about solar activity.

I'm on record in publications favoring first a carbon tax and than using the proceeds of that tax for R & D for carbon free energy technologies. Not only would such avoid global warming risk, but would also certainly reduce costs associated with traditional pollutants, and should save the billions we effectively spend for energy security, and maybe even provide energy at lower cost.

I have for some time been very pessimistic that should GHG induced global warming be proven to be a problem, that our political system can effectively address such a long run issue.

Why don't you first PROVE that GHG and CO2 are in fact the problem causing the warming...??? WHAT A CONCEPT...!

The predominant theory on warming is moving towards solar activity, and away from CO2. This is not the opinion of a "denier", it is the opinion of a "realist".

We can work on solutions once we understand the problem. All Cap and Tax does is grow government and penalize the US economy. It will destroy more private sector jobs than it creates government jobs.

It is silly to reject scientific opinions based on credible evidence that counter the CO2 theories, almost fascist-like.

Can the so-called "consensus" bandwagon explain this man's opinions. He doesn't reject warming, he just attributes it to solar activity. His predictions are more credible than the IPCC's to date.

I should have done this before. It is not something that hints at global warming, but the real threats around the world.
