PROF CHRISTY SHOWS HOW PATHETIC MUCH OF THE POLITICAL RESPONSE TO GW IS

There are many decent people who go along with the government's attempts to cut CO2 simply because they accept the thesis that there must be a problem (even though the evidence is weak and contradictory) and so they are willing to put up with higher prices for fuel etc. Here is a video of a lecture by Prof. John Christy. The whole lecture is well worth watching, but a section beginning at about 26 minutes in is relevant to this post. Christy tells us about his testimony in a court case about imposing strict new emission standards on automobiles. In it he demonstrates that even if the standards were imposed across the whole of the USA, the change in temperatures would be so small as to be undetectable. And yet the state governments still wished to go ahead.
