The Australian: Kyoto a pointless exercise

Articles on global warming, etc. are particularly interesting to me currently, since I'm reading Michael Crichton's State of Fear. While the story in the book is fiction, Crichton does an impressive job presenting the results of his exhaustive research on this topic and on eco-terrorism. There's also a thoughtful analysis of the problem of bias, wherein scientists are under pressure to present the results sought by their sponsors.

This makes it all the more interesting to see things like this, as the infamous Kyoto Treaty takes effect:

Attempts to turn every unusual weather event into confirmation of these forecasts by climate change propagandists and politicians, from England's Tony Blair to Australia's Beazley, should be seen for what they are -- either misinformed or fraudulent.
Rather than let them alarm you, ask yourself this: do you think people who can't tell you whether it will rain next Wednesday are really capable of building models that tell you what the climate will be like 100 years from now? I wouldn't trust any economic modelling that forecast what the world economy would look like a century hence, and climate models are at least as flawed as economists' ones.
