The movie, “The Day after Tomorrow,” has many people thinking once again about the whole issue of global warming and the Kyoto Treaty. But according to scientist Indur Goklany of the American Enterprise Institute, this treaty is still a bad idea.  Comments Goklany: “Believe it or not, the Kyoto Protocol is one of the cheapest plans out there to cap greenhouse gas emissions.  Yet, with today’s technologies, even after spending at least hundred billion dollars each year for a hundred years, it would reduce warming by less than 5 percent.  We could spend these large sums solving today’s vital problems such as hunger, malnutrition, disease, and unsafe water. This way we can solve today’s urgent problems without ignoring the real problems of the day after tomorrow.”
