There is a brilliant piece in Forbes (via Treehugger) in which a brilliant man named Myron Ebell argues that global warming is nice because people don't like to live in cold places, and this will make more places hospitable to live. He says that the benefits of this surely outweigh any rising of sea levels, because that only affects places on the coast, whereas if it gets warmer, people all across the country will benefit. This is a great argument, because only a very small population of America lives on the coasts, and very few of the most important financial and political centers are there. This should be fine. Also, stick around for his coup de grace argument about how pleasant hotter temperatures mandate more air conditioner use, which use a lot of energy, warm the globe more, and make it even more pleasantly warm. And then move on to the Treehugger post, in which you can discover that Myron Ebell works for the same people who call carbon dioxide life. Synergy!
