MIT Prof on Global Warming
What most commentators—and many scientists—seem to miss is that the only thing
we can say with certainly about climate is that it changes. The earth is always
warming or cooling by as much as a few tenths of a degree a year; periods of
constant average temperatures are rare. Looking back on the earth's climate
history, it's apparent that there's no such thing as an optimal temperature—a
climate at which everything is just right. The current alarm
rests on the false assumption not only that we live in a perfect world,
temperaturewise, but also that our warming forecasts for the year 2040 are
somehow more reliable than the weatherman's forecast for next week.
