Shelfari edited the memorable quotes of Climate Confusion Friday, October 22, 2010.
- Edited a quotation: “Free markets provide the best mechanism for sustainability. As a specific resource is gradually depleted, its cost goes up. This leads to the development of new technologies that then become more cost competitive.
Theadaption to dwindling resources that free markets automatically provide then prevents the resource from ever getting used up. That so many people fret over dwindling natural resources is one more example of the simple linear thinking that leads people to believe that Global Warming will be a serious problem. They see a current trend, and extrapolate it far into the future, not realizing that there are other forces at work that help to stabilize the system.”Dr. Roy Spencer
