NR Editors on Global Warming on National Review Online: "The reality that few politicians like to talk about is this: The only way to stop whatever global warming might be caused by fossil fuels is to make these fuels so expensive at the margin that they would be largely abandoned. But the costs of doing so are utterly prohibitive, and would not be justified even by worst-case global-warming scenarios. Unfortunately, no one has the stomach to level with the public about this - so, instead, we get meaningless pledges like those that Schwarzenegger has issued. That may be annoying, but things could be worse."
