Global Hot Air

Sylvain Galineau nicely summarizes the current state of intellectual disrepair of global warming (or is it "cooling?") theories:

To summarize, global warming is causing a cooling, we can't predict much about the former and there is little proof of the latter.

But, but, but, ... Sylvain, we sure can sign up for treaties that impoverish billions of people all over the world, and demolish much of our own economy - and pretend we understand and are in control of what we are doing and observing. And it seems doing that kind of thing would make some of us feel better! Doesn't that count for something?
