Kyoto Protocol is dead, long live civilization

From the estimable Ron Bailey, probably the best science writer working today (even including Gina Kolata and Gregg Easterbrook), comes the column linked above, from his coverage of the Buenos Aires Climate Change Conference. Good thing too.

Call me when any one of the various climate change theories and computer models are accurate. None of the computer models can replicate any 50-year (or less) recorded climate change since 1900 -- that is, if the researchers feed in the known data to the model from say 1900, the model is asked to "predict" the climate outcome in 1950, each and EVERY model has been preposterously inaccurate.

And the US is not alone in opposing the Kyoto idiocy, as this Bloomberg report notes.
