Ken Haapala, SEPP, The Science and Environmental Policy Project: Richard Lindzen, Sloan Emeritus Professor of Meteorology at, MIT: None of the political policies dealing with the announced man-made climate change alarms will have much impact on greenhouse gases. Thus we will continue to benefit from the one thing that can be clearly attributed to elevated carbon dioxide: namely, its effective role as a plant fertilizer, and reducer of the drought vulnerability of plants.

CBS writes that because man is using fossil fuels that they claim is causing catastrophic anthropogenic global warming, everyone must wear less clothing and it should be old, not new. We should use less heating and air conditioning and travel less. These people don't care to listen to scientists that claim that fossil fuels only play a minor role in global warmng and they don't look at the beautiful world around them. They focus on a starving, dying polar bear falsely claiming that it is dying due to man-made global warming. This has been exposed as pure alarmist trickery.

Richard Lindzen is an atmospheric physicist, Emeritus Professor at MIT. An implausible conjecture backed by false evidence and repeated incessantly has become politically correct ‘knowledge,’ and is used to promote the overturn of industrial civilization. What we will be leaving our grandchildren is not a planet damaged by industrial progress, but a record of unfathomable silliness as well as a landscape degraded by rusting wind farms and decaying solar panel arrays. There is at least one positive aspect to the present situation. None of the proposed policies will have much impact on greenhouse gases. Thus we will continue to benefit from the one thing that can be clearly attributed to elevated carbon dioxide: namely, its effective role as a plant fertilizer, and reducer of the drought vulnerability of plants.

Homri Kharas, Deputy Director of Global Economy and Development with the Brookings Institute, USA, James Peron, president of the Moorfield Storey Institute, USA, Leon Louw, Founder of the Free Market Foundation, South Africa: We are witnessing the most rapid expansion of the middle class, as a global level, that the world has ever seen. …the vast majority—almost 90 percent—of the next billion entrants into the global middle class will be in Asia: 380 million Indians, 350 million Chinese, and 2,010 million other Asians. This growth in the Asian middle class means rapidly growing economies by 2030: “Today’s lower middle-income countries, including India, Indonesia, and Vietnam, will have middle-class markets that are $15 trillion bigger than today.”
