Letter from Europe: Tobacco offers warning for oil

Really? How does this even compute? The impact of the consumption of tobacco products on human health was well established and it took massive disinformation to keep it at bay. Still, it was a personal decision to mess up your health so I could not care less. Oil, on the other hand, is an unmitigated force for good and has saved countless lives as well as lifted billions out of abject poverty. The speculated effects of one of its side products CO2 are still unestablished. We are still in the realm of supposition and correlation but not in the realm of facts. Establish clear scientific proof first and then let’s look if comparisons are warranted. And I talk about the kind of proof that would make the IPCC confident to drop its disclaimers on the reports.
