Liberty over people-control laws is the aim; Capitalism over socialism is the economic, freedom-loving gain.
Perhaps; but it's also "common sense" to assume that the best scientific evidence doesn't come from environmentalists, either.Personally, I'd rather trust the proverbial 100-monkeys-on-a-100-typewriters than I would most environmentalist "experts.
Hmmm. I guess the interesting question is, if a scientist finds evidence that makes him into an environmentalist, would you still trust hin?Anyway, I can give you a few links. First from the US goverment, accepting global warmingThen from the Brookings InstitutionFrom an association of real scientists concerned in getting the story straightand finally from another novelist (Gregory Benford) taking Crichton to task
I think the point was to take the "common sense" from the Grist column, and the "science" from Real Climate.
