A paper published in the journal The Economist's Voice says that the increasingly popular 'Precautionary Principle' should not be used as a basis for decision making regarding climate change, and that "Taken seriously, it can be paralyzing, providing no direction at all. In contrast, balancing costs against benefits can offer the foundation of a principled approach for making difficult decisions."
As the global warming apocalypse completes its intellectual collapse, the Heartland Institute has the potential to assume an even larger role. This is because the end of faith in the idea does not mean an end to its impact on society. Bast reports that when Heartland's science director Jay Lehr goes on speaking trips outside major metropolitan areas and university campuses, nobody believes in global warming anymore. Speaking at Heartland's last conference in Chicago in May, Czech President Vaclav Klaus said that he had recently attended a music festival in Prague and mentioned to a group of people that he would be speaking at the conference. Their reaction was: "Global warming? Isn't it already over?" ...
Heartland has not been alone in the struggle against global warming dogma. A host of lively blogs, defecting scientists, and maverick journalists have also been important.

“It is not a present reality, it’s a hoax” said Beck Friday. “The way the media talks about global warming is ridiculous.
The study confirms that sea level rise is accelerating and is in accord with other recent studies estimating global sea level rise at a metre or more by the end of the century, with the melting of land ice now the largest component of global sea-level rise (about 65%). Scientists say that Global Warming means 20 Metre sea level rise is in the pipeline...."Today's warning, coming from our country's leading scientific advisors, sends an urgent message to our president and other policymakers: We need strong action, right now, to avert climate catastrophe." said Shaye Wolf from the Centre for Biological Diversity.
