Hello... IPCC? Irony for you on Line 2

John Tierney in the NYT has a writeup an interesting study from the Cato Institute. Apparently, the warmest, but richest forecasts of the (Nobel Peace Prize Winning) UN IPCC Group would be significantly better for the world, especially the developing world, than the draconian solutions advocated by the Stern Report, which in turn has been flogged by every yahoo with a Prius.

I've heard such admissions before, that warmer temperatures and milder winters would be a net good for humanity. Still, its good to see there are some numbers.

Actually, now that I went and RTFP, the numbers are pretty darn rosy. Time to start burning car tires and used oil in the yard.
