Recently the U.K.’s Daily Mail was criticized by the British government “for accurately reporting that alarming predictions of global warming are wrong,” according to The Mail.
“We disclosed that although highly influential computer models are still estimating huge rises in world temperatures, there has been no statistically significant increase for more than 16 years,” The Mail continued.
Nonetheless, global warming still has its proponents, and although they continue to preach their gospel, some are beginning to realize the vast sums being spent amount to throwing money down a rathole.
Bjorn Lomborg told John Stossel Saturday on Fox that, although he believes in the global warming theory, governments have to slow down, according to The Weekly Standard.
“The Germans are spending about $110 billion on subsidies for these solar panels,” said Lomborg. “The net effect of all those investments will be to postpone global warming by 37 hours by the end of the century.”
Stossel clarified, “You believe in global warming and man-made–”
“Global warming is real,” said Lomborg, “and it is something we need to fix. But we should fix it smartly, and not in a very, very costly way as we’re doing it now. Germany is probably spending $660 for every ton of CO2 they’re cutting.”
