I know that the linkage between man made global warming gases and global warming is not conclusive. This is not relevant to me other than enough people believe it and there are different (political) choices being made because of the fear of global warming.

I deduce what will happen:
1. I believe the Lieberman/Warner climate change bill or something like it will pass probably in 2009.
2. The energy source mix will shift. More nuclear and renewables and less air pollution. Air pollution clearly kills 3 million/year around the world and 60,000/year in the USA.

I think the shift to nuclear and renewables and out of coal over the 30 years will be a good thing.

I think more CO2 increases certain plant growth (and pollen) which contributes to increased allergies and asthma.

CO2 is less relevant to me than particulates, flyash, mercury, arsenic, SOX, NOX, toxic metals etc... But if CO2 is the villain that generates action on their others then great.

You have to admit that man made global warming is not a threat and that more CO2 is good for plants, see http://greendebate.blogspot.com/2007/11/co2-science-org-is-very-good-people-for.html and have fun.

Interesting list.

I think they would do better just by reading your blog and voting a "top 12 innovations " from among the many dozens you regularly report on.
