Lomborg: Leave Global Warming to Our Kids Because It's Too Expensive for Us

Notorious skeptic Bjorn Lomborg recently testified in Congress at the request of Sen. James  (“Global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American People”) Inhofe.  Predictably, Lomborg called on the APAC 6 to ignore Kyoto because it's too expensive – without any recognition of all the wealth and jobs a global transition to clean energy would create.  And nowhere does he justify his outrageous assertion that addressing climate change will cost $5 to $8 trillion.

Huffington Post takes aim at Inhofe "the Social Dinosaur"

Corporate dinosaur or caveman?Uber-blog, Huffington Post, has a great piece today on Senator James Inhofe's latest tirade against the realities of climate change.

Most memorable Inhofe quote:

“I want to challenge the news media to reverse course and report on the objective science of climate change, stop ignoring legitimate voices in this scientific debate, and stop being used by the hysterical left,” said Inhofe. “Breaking the cycles of media hysteria will not be easy since hysteria sells and it is very profitable, but I really believe the issue is getting worn out.”

The only thing worn out is Inhofe's views on climate change. As the evidence of human-induced climate change mounts, Inhofe, Chair of the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works, continues to keeps his head well-buried in the sand. Not surprising when you consider that Inhofe's sub-committee on climate change chooses to play host to the testimony of the likes of Bjorn Lomborg, James Connaughton, Michael Crichton, William Gray, and Heartland Institute's Joseph Bast.

Public Opinion Pushes Action on Climate Change, Usually

Jack Sparrow's compassWhy is it that California is able to take such a strong lead on  climate change, while the U.S. federal administration stands around questioning the science and refusing to undertake any real action on the issue?

It's tempting to blame the polls. While there are many altruistic and economic reasons Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and California legislators are taking such a strong stance on climate change, it would be naïve to overlook the importance of public opinion polls showing that Californians are concerned and want action.

Editor Dissects Skeptical Attack on AP Survey of Scientists' Views of Gore Film

When the Associated Press released its survey of climate scientists—virtually all of whom said “An Inconvenient Truth” faithfully portrayed climate science—an aide to skeptical Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) released a press release headlined “AP Incorrectly Claims Scientists Praise Gore's Movie.”  Jim Motavalli—editor of “E/the Environmental Magazine”—dug into this exercise in disinformation to sort it all out.
