Just watch this Youtube flick, it's 9 minutes well spent. It'll explain to you that it's 50 times more expensive to try to stop climate change, than it is to adapt to it.

Next ponder why you pay so much on (climate) taxes. ;-)

Their simplistic formula implies they know exactly what climate change will cost. What if impacts on food prodcution are much worse (e.g. tropical pests and fungi that establish themselves midlatitude, collapses in marine ecosystems)? I'm guessing the 50-to-1 project doesn't price in the mortality required to adapt to a world with 10% fewer calories.

I'm not saying that carbon taxes are the only or the best way of reducing our GHG output, but this video is astounding in many of its premises and the collection of sceptics the 50:1 project pulls together. They even manage to quote the Stern Report in such a way as to argue the opposite of what Stern intended.

Marc Morano appears to be an ex-employee of Jim Imhofe:

Joannenova is author of The Skeptics' Handbook:

Her estimate of climate sensitivity looks to me highly improbable.

David Evans, the so-called rocket scientist:

Professor Christopher Essex of the Uni of Western Ontario. They love him at the Heartland Institute:

Fred Singer:

Donna Laframboise maintains that there's no scientific consensus about global warming:

To end up, Anthony Watts himself. He thinks climate change and warming may be a good thing for us:
