Thankfully, it seems the UN climate treaty will take 6 months to 1 year longer to iron out the details.  We can only hope that some sense will prevail in that time.

One of the “roadblocks” mentioned in the article is the fact that the United States’ cap-and-trade bill has not yet made it through Congress.  A bill had made it out of committee, but I haven’t been able to find out if it has actually passed the Senate.  Even so, it scares me how close we’re getting and how much power the government is gaining over our lives with no one putting up any serious resistance.

The science pointing to global warming is far from concrete, but if it was, would we really want to give up so much of our personal and collective liberty to avert it?  Do we really think we have that much of an impact on the globe either way?  Don’t get me wrong, I think we should be good stewards of this planet that God has given us and be able to pass on a good world to our children and their children.  But such actions should be left to individuals and their own sense of responsibility.  Government has no business mandating such behaviors.
