I’m not a scientist. Many times have I wished to have studied Science instead of Finance. I saw this post today and thought it very interesting.

Is Global Warming caused by human activity? As someone speaking as a non-scientist, I think it is very arrogant of us humans to think we can control something so huge. But many people think we do and can–like Mr. Internet inventor himself, Al Gore.

This portion of the post caught my Finance/Economics attention:

While the scientists reported on a vast array of peer-reviewed literature that cast doubt on the causes and severity of global warming, the economists produced data that showed the cap-and-trade scheme not only wouldn’t halt the release of greenhouse gases, but would add huge costs to business activity that inevitably would be passed along to consumers in the form of higher prices.
