Global Warming Solution now at Reduced Price

Scientists put price on global-warming efforts

This article in the Strib yesterday is yet another unsubstantiated installment in the war against an enemy that doesn't exist and then is turned into a shot at the Bush Administration.

The IPCC is now selling us the MMGW Crisis on price.

Climate change can be limited, and at a reasonable price.

cutting greenhouse-gas emissions to levels scientists think would stem increases in warming would cost nations at most 0.12 percent of economic growth each year through 2030, scientists said.

And the article uses a headline that contradicts the subsequent paragraph and expose the liberal bent of the author:

White House rejects options

Bush administration officials, who along with representatives of 120 other countries approved the report's policy summary before its release this week, praised it for highlighting "the importance of deploying a portfolio of clean energy technologies." But they said that trying to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 50 to 85 percent by 2050, in line with the report's most ambitious scenarios, would have economic consequences.

Does that sound like a rejection?
