As should always have been expected, these measures are far more about government control than any realistic impact on the planet.

Oh, and that oil's still going to market. Just in much less carbon-friendly vehicles than a pipeline. Perverse. But unfortunately in politics, you're not going anywhere if you don't DO SOMETHING for the cameras.
The melting of ice all over the world has not plateaued at all. Neither have rising sea levels. Also, keep in mind that we don't know what it means when warming plateaus in various regions. In some regions it's getting hotter. Does it mean climate change is going to reverse? Of course not. We probably don't know yet what it means. This is the problem with political writers addressing the science. They pluck out the one statistic they like and build their case on it. Scientists don't do that. They look at the whole.

I've heard this argument before. Nobody can prove that it causes cancer, so just wait until they do. Meanwhile, keep smoking, man.
