Here's a link I think you might like.

For anyone else who follows it, yes, it is the Wall Street Journal and the WSJ is editorially conservative.

Great bit of information! I may come of as UN-phobe from time to time, but when the UN says something is bad and they want to fix it by limiting how we conduct our national affairs (fuel consumption), I begin to wonder. ESPECIALLY when there are equally, if not more, scholarly studies refuting the UN findings. With large countries like Russia, China and India getting passes on lowering "evil" CO2 emissions, I have to wonder if Kyoto is an attempt to level the economic playing field unfairly.

The UN is a great vehicle for many things, but taxes and the environment are not their cup of tea.

Certainly no one has the right to fabricate data to manipulate policy.

WSJ believes in capitalism. Capitalism is based upon expanding markets. In a finite world, expanding markets are based upon expanding populations, expanded manufacturing is based in turn upon expanding exploitation of resources.

I guess we've got nothing to worry about. We'll just keep manufacturing more earth, more sky, more water, and we'll never run out.

When I hear someone from Forbes or WSJ just acknowledge that the world is finite, and the paradigm used to shape markets in the 17th Century might have to change in the 21st Century, some progress will have been made.
