It's a good idea to just link to an article instead of posting the whole thing.

Last week, Gordon Brown and his chief economist both said global warming was the worst "market failure" ever. That loaded soundbite suggests that the "climate-change" scare is less about saving the planet than, in Jacques Chirac's chilling phrase, "creating world government".
And that's how 90% of the people who have no arguments debate: By poisoning the well or by means of ad hominem remarks. "He's got this and that bad reason to say what he says, so don't listen to him!".

Global warming is a very real fact, and a very real threat. It is getting warmer, the heat is causing more and more natural disasters, and it is foolish and dangerous to subscribe to Creationist-style pseudo-science to hide the facts.
