Matt Ridley: The policies being proposed to combat climate change, far from being a modest insurance policy, are proving ineffective, expensive, harmful to poor people and actually bad for the environment: we are tearing down rainforests to grow biofuels and ripping up peat bogs to install windmills that still need fossil-fuel back-up.
Terry Donze, geophysicist, examines the science and politics of catastrophic man-made global warming in a letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal and in his book,"ALARMISM EXPOSED, CLIMATE REALISM." His book is recommended reading for high school and college students and for presentations to the public.
Roy Spencer, Ph.D. in meteorology, Principal Research Scientist at the University of Alabama. “Global warming” refers to the global-average temperature increase that has been observed over the last one hundred years or more. Because small, chaotic fluctuations in atmospheric and oceanic circulation systems can cause small changes in global average cloudiness, this is all that is necessary to cause climate change. Climate change — it happens, with or without our help.

Approximately 200,000 people have died due to global terrorism in the last 10 years.During the same time, many millions of people (mostly women and children) have died due to policies promoted by Greenpeace and other “green” organizations (e.g. anti-DDT, anti-golden rice, anti-fossil fuel).
