Briton not sold on global warming alarmism 

 

If, as I noted Friday, Americans increasingly are not sold on global warming alarmism, neither is Christopher Booker of the London Sunday Telegraph (and founding editor of Private Eye). His column provides an account in brief of the rise of global warming alarmism—and its thin scientific basis. He notes that the British House of Commons recently passed legislation mandatin reductions carbon emissions of more than 80% by 2050 that will cost the U.K. some £18 billion a year—at a time when it was snowing outside the Houses of Parliament, the first October snow there in 74 years. His conclusion: “Thanks to misreading the significance of a brief period of rising temperatures at the end of the 20th century, the Western world (but not India or China) is now contemplating measures that add up to the most expensive economic suicide note ever written.” For more information, you can pre-order his book The Real Global Warming Disaster.
