Climate change switcheroo

The WSJ, always is the vanguard of scientific progress, but out an editorial today about how global warming won't be all that bad, which RealClimate.com blisters in a rebuttal.

I think David is quite right to wonder about a newspaper which argues very strongly against climage change at all, and then switching to pointing out some benefits of what it says isn't occurring.

Tha call for calm is important, but the call to pooh-pooh the problem isn't.

I actually have a friend who believes that global warming is all a scam, put up by "climatologists" and other "scientists" to make money. Needless to say, with such a position as that I just avoid the topic entirely with him. There's really no middle ground there.
