The author reflects on the difficulty of the global warming proponents to sell their climate-policy interventions to the public. The unfathomed complexities involved in dealing with global climate since it also put a real dent on economic growth and human welfare is cited. However, the author suggests the advantage of waiting a decade or two to determine and improve the empirical reliability and effectiveness of the adopted climate models particularly in poorer countries.
