Simple solutions to Superstorm Sandy | Lomborg - The Australian
Sandy underscored a fundamental question for all parts of the world that are affected by hurricanes. If we want to reduce hurricane damage, should we focus primarily on a very cheap solution that would enable us to handle storm surges much better within a few years? Or should we pursue an incredibly expensive solution that would require almost 100 years to avoid 9mm of 7.5m surges?

The morally defensible answer is clear, and it has nothing to do with immediate reductions in CO2 emissions.
COP18 Could This Be The Last UN Climate Circus Meeting? « Tory Aardvark
Just a few years ago the MSM would have been full of climate of fear stories as a UN COP conference loomed, now there is barely a mention even in the UK Guardian about COP18.
That is the fundamental problem with belief systems that are based on a fad, and Anthropogenic Global Warming was just a fad, the majority of people move on to a new fad, and that usually leaves a minority of increasingly isolated zealots.
