Yet Another Study

This time a report on the effects of climate change on Europe. It's not clear whether the model assumed that global warming will occur, but the results are apparently mixed - some bad (emphasized by the BBC) some good (mentioned only in passing).

If climate change is indeed moving toward a warmer climate, then the best humankind can do is follow its trends, just as we would have to cope with a cooling globe. All the talk about "tackling global warming" is simply not on. We really must learn to understand that we can only be a small part of the solution (and are not necessarily a large part of the problem anyway).

As I type this, Prince Charles is receiving maximum coverage on the BBC's 10 o'clock news. Quite amazing that one man, unschooled in science, can be allowed to exert such a strong influence on a nation.
