The Competitive Enterprise Institute, Washington, D.C.’s favorite industry-funded “environmental think tank,” offered up a definitive article on climate change in July of this year.

The CEI began by saying: “Global warming is happening and man is responsible for at least some of it.”

You can click here and read the entire, tortured, outdated 2,913-word argument about how that’s really okay – how facing the problem might cause economic dislocation among CEI‘s major funders – but we think we have excerpted the most important part of the paper in those opening 14 words.
