Further to yesterday’s post, looks like the Governator has cut a deal with the top Democrats in the state legislature to pass AB32, the bill that would make California the firsts state to put limits on greenhouse gas emissions. Apparently, there are still way too many employers in California and Arnold and the Dems aim to thin the herd a bit.
On the topic of global warming were sent — independently — two separate articles today. One came from our friend and fellow blogger Carter Wood. It’s a great op-ed by Boston Globe columnist Alex Beam entitled, “MIT’s Inconvenient Scientist.” It’s a profile of Richard Lindzen, who’s written prolifically, persuasively and skeptically about global warming — for which he’s been roundly attacked by the left.
However, more interesting was this piece by Tim Hames from the (UK) Times On Line entitled, “Look On the Sunny Side,” about the effects of the sun on climate change — a science the author notes is often overlooked in the current hysteria. Talking about the group of scientists who study the suns apparent impact on warming temperatures, the article says, “The most persuasive subsection of this community is convinced that the principal cause of climate change on Earth is the intensity of solar activity,” but goes on to add that nevertheless, “Public discussion is dominated by those inclined to the most doom-laden predictions.” Yeah, we already knew that. Looks like somebody should’ve passed this on to the misguided folks out on the left coast.
As a public service, we want to alert all you economic development officials out there for the other 49 states. Get ready for a bunch of (more) business.
