Global Warming and Cigarettes

by F.

Too funny:

I discussed global warming in my book Catastrophe: Risk and Response (2004). I considered the evidence that global warming was a serious problem for which man-made emissions were the principal cause altogether convincing–and since then more evidence has accumulated and the voices of the dissenters are growing weaker. The global-warming skeptics are beginning to sound like the people who for so many years, in the face of compelling evidence, denied that cigarette smoking had serious adverse effects on health.

That’s Posner.
