"Many scientists who have tried to mathematically determine the relationship between carbon dioxide and global temperature would appear to have vastly underestimated the significance of water in the atmosphere as a radiation-absorbing gas. If you ignore the water, you're going to get the wrong answer."
"We can certainly go for carbondioxide control and sequestration, but this is likely to be somewhere between highly and catastrophically expensive. And to what end, if that isn’t the problem? I’m not alone in this position. Merely one of a large minority. But those with the power evidently don’t want to listen. So is this science or just politics?"
