### I cautiously assume that some minor degree of global warming occurred
in the past 50 years, although it is not clear if there was any net warming
in the past 80, 800, or 8000 years. If warming indeed occurred, there is
quite possibly some anthropogenic contribution. However, any claim that the
warming, if any, is deleterious, or in the foreseeable future is going to
be deleterious, or catastrophic, is pure pseudoscience, bunk and obviously

We know that increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere,
including any plausible future increases due to anthropogenic emissions,
are clearly beneficial to humanity and lead to dramatic improvements in
plant productivity and agricultural output. Warming itself is directly
beneficial to humans by reducing deaths from cold exposure. This is settled

But SWB energy is going to be really, really cheap, so carbon dioxide
production will eventually fall, which means there may be a time when we
will have to mine methane hydrates or release gigatons of halocarbons just
to keep the atmosphere warm enough to prevent the next ice age.
