"Today’s society lives in the grip of a madness—the belief that humans are causing dangerous climate change. Melting ice caps, rising oceans, stronger storms, droughts and floods, and species extinction are blamed on greenhouse gas emissions from our industry. But contrary to what your political leader, professor, and newspaper tell you, global warming is dominated by natural factors. As a result, thousands of climate and energy laws across hundreds of nations, all summed together, are not going to have a measureable effect on Earth’s temperatures."
