Murdock on Climate Change

Rupert Murdock has the best short assessment of the situation with regard to climate change. He recently tweeted: "Climate change very slow but real. So far all cures worse than disease." That is the real state of affairs, and Fred Krupp, writing in the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal, urges both the alarmists and the hard-core skeptics to heed it. In particular he urges conservatives to seek market-based responses to global warming.

It sounds good, and to my mind is the only reasonable response to the current situation, but given the polarization of opinion on the issue of climate change, it will be difficult to achieve a reasonable set of policies. 

Perhaps a Romney administration can craft such policies. The current one certainly, on the basis of its performance so far, cannot.

One can hope.
