Global Warming Is Good

Maybe we're completely wrong about global warming: 100% headed-in-the-wrong-direction, here comes the next ice age two thousand years early sorta wrong. Which we're not. The ultimate answer's gonna be some combination of man-made causes and Earth going through its cycles.

But even if we were completely wrong about global warming, there is this positive effect: it's getting more fat-assed Americans to think and act about taking care of the damn planet than I've seen in a long, long time.

At least for the time being, while it's the in thing to do.

So while it's the in thing to do, let's all go read this Freeman Dyson essay, in which he takes some unpopular views, and by the way does the math on the carbon cycle. He also has the temerity to state that hey, we damn arrogant humans really don't know everything.
