Ignore This Report- It Means Nothing!

I wonder if this will change anyone's mind:

"The world's most high-profile climate change sceptic is to declare that global warming is "undoubtedly one of the chief concerns facing the world today" and "a challenge humanity must confront", in an apparent U-turn that will give a huge boost to the embattled environmental lobby.

Bjørn Lomborg, the self-styled "sceptical environmentalist"...is famous for attacking climate scientists, campaigners, the media and others for exaggerating the rate of global warming and its effects on humans, and the costly waste of policies to stop the problem.

But in a new book to be published next month, Lomborg will call for tens of billions of dollars a year to be invested in tackling climate change. "Investing $100bn annually would mean that we could essentially resolve the climate change problem by the end of this century," the book concludes."

What, conservatives are undoubtedly just going to ignore this? Well, I guess their payoffs from Exxon and the Hunt Brothers would end mighty fast if they started telling the truth. Better to let the human race die out in a couple of generations.

Anything which would imperil the profits of Massey or the Koch's must be vilified.

One can only hope.
