No Need to Panic about Global Warming

I'm really getting pretty fed up with the people who insist on burying their heads in the sand over the whole issue of global warming and climate change. Now a paper as influential as the Wall Street Journal, that frankly should be more responsible, has published an opinion piece "No Need to Panic About Global Warming There's no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to 'decarbonize' the world's economy."

Now check out the other view, Dismal Science at the Wall Street Journal, from the website of the Union of Concerned Scientists.

How do we convince people that this threat is for real and make them look beyond their own cosy lifestyle to the bigger global picture? I think the Wall Street Journal should now balance that article with the majority view from the science community.
