"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."
- Buckminster Fuller (h/t Suzy Waldman)

Thank you for emitting CFCs

On the globalchange list, Tom Adams points to a very interesting essay about ozone hole skepticism.

I read that essay and just had to shake my head in disappointment at how easily that strategy can be applied in other fields.

The highlight (or lowlight?) was the exchange between Doolittle and Rivers in the House hearing. With the possible exception of one word ("ban"), you could listen to that and think they were talking about global warming.
