The End of The Global Warming Scare

I have pinched the following from first things:

Despite the “science is settled” and “consensus” claims of the global-warming alarmists, the fear of catastrophic consequences from rising temperatures has been driven not so much by good science as by computer models and adroit publicity fed to a compliant media. The lack of solid empirical evidence is striking. The theory is thus highly vulnerable in two ways. One is the accumulation of evidence that appears to falsify it, and the other is a public opinion that is no longer susceptible to media alarms. There are signs that both of these events are happening.

Read the rest here. First things really is a 'Key' journal, really reccomend it for some good, no-nonsense, common sense journalism.
