Today's global warming piece

Today's article comes from David Harsanyi in the Denver Post. David thinks, as do I, that hysteria over global warming is vastly overblown. And he's talked to actual scientists (you know, members of that block that leftist seeking central control over the world's economies keep telling us is "monolithic - there is no dissent") who, well, dissent from the conventional wisdom of the left.
The only inconvenient truth about global warming, contends Colorado State University's Bill Gray, is that a genuine debate has never actually taken place. Hundreds of scientists, many of them prominent in the field, agree.

Gray is perhaps the world's foremost hurricane expert...Yet, his criticism of the global warming "hoax" makes him an outcast. "They've been brainwashing us for 20 years," Gray says. "Starting with the nuclear winter and now with the global warming. This scare will also run its course...Gray directs me to a 1975 Newsweek article that whipped up a different fear: a coming ice age.
[I am old enough to clearly remember fear-mongering over the coming ice age - LB]

"Climatologists," reads the piece, "are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change..."

Thank God they did nothing. Imagine how warm we'd be?

It's a good piece...
