In this short video, Johan Norberg explains the environmental dangers of too many proposals to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.  (By the way, for you fans of taking action based on the “precautionary principle,” even if you believe that the chances are only very small that government-imposed environmental regulations will lead to a cataclysmic fall in economic prosperity and, in turn, a consequent increase in quite lethal environmental hazards, your logic dictates that you call for an immediate end to government-imposed environmental regulations.)

The worst environmental disaster is the absence of capitalism.
