  1. Can I add a simple but (I hope) effective meme to this debate…

    How Much is Global Warming Denial Worth?

    $1120 Million Per Day


    Well in a recent article in the Economist magazine (about peak oil) there was this:

    “The IEA reckons that co-ordinated action to restrict the increase in global temperatures to 2ºC will restrict global demand for oil to 89m b/d in 2030, compared with 105m b/d if no action is taken.”

    So there is a difference of 16million b/d (that is Barrels Per Day) so given the cost of a barrel is currently around $70, so you can see that it represents $1120 million dollars per day in difference. So event mitigating the supply a bit – by obfuscating the science and promoting uncertainty is worth $millions per day.

    That’s why denial has been so well funded. 2009/ 12/ how-much-is-global-warming-denial-worth.html
