You are paying for California's junk science addiction

Richard W. Walker at the National Center for Policy Analysis:
"Gov. Schwarzenegger, in particular, and California, in general, like to tout themselves as being ahead of the curve in politics and policy, but they are now not only ahead of the science, they have put California taxpayers behind the 8-ball of the economic impact of this policy," said NCPA Senior Fellow H. Sterling Burnett. "More and more frequently peer-reviewed research is increasingly linking the current warming cycle to natural variations, rather than to humans."

Declaring the debate about climate change and global warming to be over, Gov. Schwarzenegger said the time for action is now because, in his words, "We know the science. We see the threat." Yet many scientists, especially those writing for peer-reviewed journals rather than the popular press, are finding that climate change is better explained by natural climate cycles and other cosmic events and may not be due to human activity at all.
