Globaloney Experts Predict Zero Scientific Progress in Next 100 Years!
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the wizards who brought us the Kyoto Protocol) have now revised their estimates of upcoming global warming downwards: now they believe mean global temperature will only be 3º C warmer in 2100 than today, if we do absolutely nothing about it.
If we fully implement the Kyoto Protocol -- then we can drastically reduce that ghastly warming... by 1º C. Whew!
But what does that say about Western science and technology? That over the next 100 years, we will not even be able to cope with a scant rise of 2 or 3º C... and that mostly during winter nights in the coldest regions of the Earth!
The only explanation is that globalony lovers believe that science has come to a screeching halt, and there will be zero scientific or technological progress in the next century.
It's no wonder global-warming scaremongering comes mainly from the anti-technology Left.

Moore's Law, a remarkably accurate observation made in 1965 by Intel (INTC) co-founder Gordon Moore, says technology as measured by the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits doubles every 18 to 24 months. Years later, futurist Ray Kurzweil noted that such exponential growth need not be limited to computer chips, but also applied to the path of all technology.
"We won't experience 100 years of progress in the 21st century," Kurzweil wrote in his 2001 essay, "The Law of Accelerating Returns." "It will be more like 20,000 years of progress (at today's rate)."
