Mainstreaming anthropogenic global warming (AGW) skepticism...

Mainstreaming anthropogenic global warming (AGW) skepticism: The Wall Street Journal's editors are not impressed with the latest IPCC report.  Early in today's editorial you'll find this:
Translation: Temperatures have been flat for 15 years, nobody can properly explain it (though there are some theories), and the IPCC doesn't want to spend much time doing so because it is politically inconvenient and shows that the computer models on which all climate-change predictions depend remain unreliable.

Then there's this:
The other lesson is that amid such uncertainty the best insurance against adverse climate risks is robust economic growth. The wealthier the world is in 50 or 100 years, the more resources and technology it will have to cope if the worst predictions come true. But that requires free-market, pro-growth policies that are the opposite of the statist fixes pushed by the climate alarmists. 
It's very nice to see the skeptical AGW position going mainstream.  It hints at that rarest of commodities these days, the one stamped out by The One: hope...
