Amazing statement about the Kyoto Protocol - considering the Source

Here is part of a most intersting article. It is no doubt worthwhile to look for the report mentioned in the article.

Last week 60 accredited experts in climate and related scientific disciplines wrote an open letter to the Canadian Prime Minister. ...

The experts' opinion is that "while the confident pronouncements of scientifically unqualified environmental groups may provide for sensational headlines, they are no basis for mature policy."

The fact is that "the study of global climate change is," as the Canadian Prime Minister himself has said, an "emerging science," and "one that is perhaps the most complex ever tackled. It may be many years yet before we properly understand the Earth's climate system. Nevertheless, significant advances have been made since the protocol was created, many of which are taking us away from a concern about increasing greenhouse gases. If, back in the mid-1990s, we knew what we know today about climate, Kyoto would almost certainly not exist, because we would have concluded it was not necessary."
