BJORN LOMBORG, A VOICE OF REASON

Mr Lomborg points out that the average of seven leading peer-reviewed economic models suggest the cost to EU citizens of cutting emissions of CO2 by 80% by 2050 will be in the order of £2.5 trillion a year. [an unbelievable sum that I have queried.]

Lomborg observes that if this policy is conducted with average efficiency it would make EU citizens 24% poorer in 2050.  Yet even on the IPCC's own analysis, the total impact of unmitigated climate change (in the form of extreme weather and rising sea level predictions) would be equivalent to reducing the average person's income, globally, by between 0.2 and 2% in the 2070's. 

Only an idiot could regard giving up 24% to save 2% as a good deal for humanity.

Same observation as made by "spike55" over at Pierre Gosselin's website.

The advocates of global warming are such transparent con men.
