Reference: Climate warming on harvest, Bangkok Post, December 3, 2009

The shrill warning about the catastrophic effects of global warming on Chinese agriculture boils down to the tautology that IF sufficiently extreme weather events occur and IF they devastate agriculture, THEN "the impact on the economic and social development of China would be incalculable". Much of the global warming hype is now being delivered as pure hypothetical statements of this nature; so much so that even their position appears to have retreated from a science argument ("the science is settled and we are right") to a Biblical one ("you can't afford to fret about whether we are right or wrong because we could turn out to be right").
