Governments should focus on reducing barriers to economic growth and adaptation

Civil Society Versus Governments on Climate Change
from ANTIDOTE by Sauvik
We have all heard of the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) whose chairman, Dr. RK Pachauri of the Delhi-based The Energy Research Institute (TERI) shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with the US politician (of the statist Democratic Party) Al Gore. The critical thing to note about the IPCC is that it is governmental.
The alarmism of the IPCC-Gore camp is aimed at more and more government action to "mitigate" the crisis they themselves are predicting. More governmental action, of course, is in the interest of these government types - as the pathway to bigger budgets, vast powers etc.
There are many voices being raised againt this alarmism. Prominent among them is that of the President of the Czech Republic, Dr. Vaclav Klaus. His speech against this alarmism, delivered at the headquarters of the United Nations, is a must read for all Indians, especially because this comes from the Head of State of a former communist country.
I too have written on this subject - that the IPCC-Gore agenda is "just hot air".
However, one of the most enlightening articles I have come across on the "dubious science" of these governmental climatologists is by Clifford Thies. It is also available as an MP3 download. So read it or hear it - and then, THINK!
Now, a huge coalition of civil society organizations from all over the world are meeting in Delhi tomorrow (April 2) to release their own report on the dubious science and unnecessary alamism of the IPCC and its associated government. The programme is available here.
