“The global-warming thrill ride looks to be coming to an end, undone by the same politically motivated serial exaggeration and moral preening that discredited previous apocalypses,” editorialized the National Review, pointing to the “Climategate” e-mails and “embarrassing retractions” from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Predicting future debates about “basic climate sensitivity” and “alternative explanations for observed climate change in the Arctic and elsewhere,” the editorial concluded: “With the collapse of the Kyoto-Copenhagen process and the likely rejection of cap-and-trade in Congress, climate mania may have run its course.”
