Global Warming: Cooler Heads Should Prevail

Regarding global warming, We are wary of the hype. That global warming is occurring may not be doubted, although it would be necessary to compare current trends with past trends in order to notice any patters. It would be quite utterly ridiculous if people are worked up on something that happens every now and then.

From Drudge Report comes a link to this article, "Let cooler heads prevail: The media heat up over global warming" by George Will at Jewish World Review.

One important part:
"it's even more critical than that" because China and India are going to "put more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere with conventional coal-fired generators than all of the rest of the planet has during the last 150 years."

That is one reason why the Clinton administration never submitted the Kyoto accord on global warming for Senate ratification. In 1997 the Senate voted 95 to 0 that the accord would disproportionately burden America while being too permissive toward major polluters that are America's trade competitors.
It intrigues Us why people keep harping at The United States when, really, bigger problems may be posed by China and India. Why no harping at them?

This issue, important as it may be, should be examined with cool heads.

Nobody bothers India and China about global warming because their gripes would fall on deaf ears. Some in the US, however, would gladly handicap our economy, pay fines, gnash teeth, rend clothes, whatever.
