Excellent post....and because many "experts" ignore key period's in earth's history while making political appeals in favor of cap and trade legislation, I am skeptical of the claim that humans have much of an effect on global climate change at all and our efforts to slow the natural warming or cooling cycles will have a negligible effect that will be impossible to measure with certainty with the limited data we have available.
I want a clean environment as much as the next guy, but when politicans talk about capping and trading credits from low emission tech firms in their district to big industry in the "other guy's" district....I get even more skeptical. I'll probably never support cap and trade legislation in the US even if a consensus is reached about AGW for that reason.
"Climate-gate" didn't help either.
