  • “Drop CCC (Climate Change Crisis) and Cap & Trade legislation. It is naive, non-scientific, irrelevant, hopeless and oxymoronic.”

    This is the primary recommendation of American aerospace engineer Burt Rutan based on this analysis of the IPCC data on global warming: http://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/rutanagwdataanalysis.pdf
    This in not a Climatologist’s study, and that doesn’t matter. Its merit derives from the value of his analysis and interpretation of data.

    Those who disagree with Mr. Rutan’s recommendation will need to demonstrate that his analysis is flawed. I don’t think it can be done, but am open to those who will try.
