At The Quadrant, Matt Ridley systematically lists and explains the facts about climate change and how science in general has been hijacked by people on a mission.
These scientists and their guardians of the flame repeatedly insist that there are only two ways of thinking about climate change—that it’s real, man-made and dangerous (the right way), or that it’s not happening (the wrong way). But this is a false dichotomy. There is a third possibility: that it’s real, partly man-made and not dangerous.

I must say that I do not see some of Mr Kunstler’s forecasts actually coming to pass in 2015, yet I can’t help but feel he is very accurately describing current conditions — therefore some of his predictions may simply realise later, rather than sooner. It is certainly appropriate to use the term “dark age” to describe our future if we continue on the path we are on. An interesting read at the very least. While this is an American centred thesis, it is not difficult to connect the dots as relates to Canada’s prospects for 2015 and beyond. The Elephant and the Mouse sharing the same bed, as they say.
