On average, global warming is not going to harm the developing world.
Obviously any group that has to have funding also needs to get attention to their issues.
So it's mainly a question of helping the Third World overcome the effects of global warming.
The Kyoto treaty has an estimated cost of between US$150 and $350 billion a year, starting in 2010.
My suggestion is that we should first work to ensure the Third World has clean drinking water and sanitation.
Just because there is a problem doesn't mean that we have to solve it, if the cure is going to be more expensive than the original ailment.
Even if I was a bad right wing guy, to the extent of whether my arguments are right or wrong, they're right or wrong independently if I'm right or left.
I really try to say things as they basically are and it so happens that it is a good message that things are getting better, but there are still problems.
The fact that we're catching more fish per person than we've ever done before doesn't mean that there are not particular places where we've managed fisheries badly.
The obvious issue is providing clean drinking water and sanitation to every single human being on earth at the cost of little more than one year of the Kyoto treaty.
