A Cato-tonic Response

A Sure-Fire Recipe For Global Bankruptcy.

Two skeptics at the Cato Institute now argue that it's wasteful to spend money addressing the climate crisis because succeeding generations will be so much wealthier that the cost to them will be negligible. What they don't tell us is that if we don't deal with this issue a.s.a.p., succeeding generations will be bankrupt by mid-century.

New 'Friends of Science' Site Needs a Signature

There's a new “Friends of Science” website at http://friendsofscience.ca/ . Have a click and you'll find something very different than the old http://www.friendsofscience.org/ of the oil-industry backed climate change denial group.

To their credit, the new group has assembled four interesting videos (the “short ad” is devastating and worth the look), but it's questionable that the only contact information reveals an anonymous opportunity to give them money. If they are not prepared to identify themselves, you'd be better off spending your global warming budget on compact fluorescents or sending it to a group like the David Suzuki Foundation, which accounts for its spending.

In response to the Financial Post

The following letter was sent to the National Post yesterday, Friday, Nov. 24, 2006. A much-edited version ran in the business section today. We reprint the entire letter here for your interest:

I must respond to a series of unwarranted attacks by Financial Post Editor Terence Corcoran on me personally and on DeSmogBlog.com that I run, independent of my business (James Hoggan & Associates).
