Bring on the debate

Another article makes the case for global warming debate

Phillip Stot has it right. Global warming is not a crisis.

From the Babylon of Gilgamesh to the post-Eden of Noah, every age has viewed climate change cataclysmically, as retribution for human greed and sinfulness.

In the 1970s, the fear was "global cooling." The Christian Science Monitor then declaimed, "Warning: Earth's climate is changing faster than even experts expect," while The New York Times announced, "A major cooling of the climate is widely considered inevitable." Sound familiar? Global warming represents the latest doom-laden "crisis," one demanding sacrifice to Gaia for our wicked fossil-fuel-driven ways.

But neither history nor science bolsters such an apocalyptic faith.

Bring on the opinion. Bring on the discussion. Let's look at the science on it's own merits instead of declaring the debate over. If the science can be verified, then we should look at the next step, including free market solutions. No alternative energy subsidies, no mandated programs, no declarations from on high about moral energy use.

Just people making their own choices and accepting the consequences.
