"Lots of jobs depend on global warming"

More from climate scientist turned skeptic Evans' confession: "By the late 1990's, lots of jobs depended on the idea that carbon emissions caused global warming. Many of them were bureaucratic, but there were a lot of science jobs created too. I was on that gravy train, making a high wage in a science job that would not have existed if we didn't believe carbon emissions caused global warming. And we had political support, the ear of government, big budgets, and we felt fairly important and useful (well, I did anyway). It was great. We were working to save the planet! But starting in about 2000, the evidence. . . fell away or reversed."

Why should we so radically change our society on such uncertain science? It's not "settled" at all.

This goes to show that "Global Warming" caused by man, is a myth!
