A MOST SENSIBLE GLOBAL WARMING PERSPECTIVE
This overview from the Economist strikes me as level-headed in the extreme. “…some scientists are arguing that man-made climate change is not quite so bad a threat as it appeared to be a few years ago.” But (paraphrasing here) this is only good news if we actually use the few extra years it may buy us. If those scientists are right and it in fact does. “If the world has a bit more breathing space to deal with global warming, that will be good. But breathing space helps only if you actually do something with it.”
