: What about this?

: Can so many "experts" be wrong?

SDF: So what about this? Where is the evidence to back up their statements of panic about the Kyoto Protocol?

And then your page plays our heartstrings with this simplistic equation of economic growth with ending poverty (the "greatest social pollutant," as your page puts it). Where is the evidence that "economic growth" will produce anything more than this, the transfer of wealth from south to north, at the equivalent of six Marshall Plans during the 1980s, and still counting? Even your friends who wrote THE SOVEREIGN INDIVIDUAL made the growing maldistribution of wealth one of their main premises...
