With regard to Global Warming, I am what Anthony Watts would call a Luke Warmer. i.e. I am inclined to the contention that we are warming the planet with CO2 emissions. But I am open to persuasion - I am not closed to rational debate. But I generally go along with the scientific majority.
Even if Global Warming turned out to be a mirage, this really would not change my position on the need to reduce pollution and mitigate environmental damage.
I am very firmly not in the Luddite camp. Technology, particularly what has become known as high technology has immeasurably improved mankind and I am a zealous supporter. I often rail against stupid anti-technology, anti-progress aspects of our society, like the "Organic" produce fad or irrational beliefs in various end-of-the-world myths.
As you may have also noticed, the corruption of high technology to aid the irrational and avaracious pursuit of junk technology, like the current wind turbine obsession, drives me to distraction.
Most of the posts below are critical of the stance taken by many in the pro AGW camp but they are not critical of the science itself.
Here are my posts on Environment issues. they are in no particular order. I need to do some more soon.
