A sober view of global warming

Tom Evslin offers up a sober view of global warming, and a conclusion with which I agree:

What we can't afford to do is make policy based on hysterical observations that the glaciers are continuing their fifteen-thousand year retreat OR a complacent assumption that things will stay the way humans have always seen them.

Here again we would be well served with a little more humility on all sides.

If any change is to happen the American people need to make far more noise and let their elected representatives know that they are ready for major change. The current cost of gas at nearly $3 might actually be the spur needed to effect change.
