Format: Paperback
The Climate Change or Global Warming debate has become something near religious for far too many people for it to be the subject of real analysis. It doesn't help that many actual scientists and advocates posing as scientists or experts have thrown over their professional integrity in order to be "effective" in changing the social climate. They know if they were honest about what they know and don't know, nothing would get done. Now, this is my editorializing, not from the author of this book. I say this because I hope there will be an audience of people who are looking for actual discourse on this subject rather than faith-based commitment to one doctrine or another about the impact of humans on their environment and our ability to do anything about it except die in huge numbers.

This book is NOT saying, "All is fine with the environment so carry on as you are". The author, Lee Lane does think it is important to take steps to deal with better understanding the actual human impact on the environment and "climate" (quote marks mine). He goes through the issues he thinks important in four short chapters.

In the first he shows why the Kyoto Protocols were pretty much meaningless. The costs were too high and the benefits too small. Plus the soon to be biggest producers of CO2 (China and India) would be left to their massive polluting. The second chapter examines the ideas of capping and trading rules for green house gases (GHG). He shows why their benefits are a chimera. First, the real world packages are unrealistically costly. Second, most political bureaucracies are too Balkanized to achieve the requisite winning intragovernmental coalition.
