That global climate science is nowhere near advanced enough to form a basis of sound policy decisions, but agenda-driven studies are being used anyway.

How advanced must it be? Unfortunatly, science will never be able to tell us exactly what will happen and when, but it can help gauge the risks. To me, the risks are great and the data sound. Policy needs to change. I'm with Arnold on this on, one of the only left-wing issues I do applaud him for.
I'm sorry, but the "global cooling" business is a typical strawman, often held up as a counter to pro-environment policy. The fact is, scientists disagree. And just because they disagree doesn't mean they are all wrong. Global cooling as a theory was wrong, and that is one of the reasons there was no enormous outcry in the scientific community when it was published.
