My feelings on global warming in a nutshell

Why write unnecessarily when someone else has already written the words? Instapundit's Glenn Reynolds has offered his views on global warming, and they pretty much jibe with mine.

Not only that, take a gander at which scifi novel he mentions near post's end! Great minds think alike, eh?

UPDATE: George Will offers his usual insight. The key questions:

How much reduction of such social goods are we willing to accept by slowing economic activity in order to (try to) regulate the planet's climate?

We do not know how much we must change our economic activity to produce a particular reduction of warming. And we do not know whether warming is necessarily dangerous. Over the millennia, the planet has warmed and cooled for reasons that are unclear but clearly were unrelated to SUVs. Was life better when ice a mile thick covered Chicago? Was it worse when Greenland was so warm that Vikings farmed there? Are we sure the climate at this particular moment is exactly right, and that it must be preserved, no matter the cost?
