With the raging heat wave in Europe and America there will be renewed calls for immediate and drastic action against climate change. Unfortunately, nothing can be achieved over the short run. If human activity is a prime mover in climate change, as most scientists believe, it took years to get ourselves into this mess, and it will take years to get ourselves out. Also, any effort on our part must be matched by efforts of other nations if we are to have any chance of success. Pursuing anything other than a coordinated international program (enforced) is like spitting into the wind.
Of course, the progressives don’t want to hear this. They thrash out wildly like men possessed, and in their madness they would destroy America’s economy with no significant impact on global warming.
