I just found a useful piece of information in Matt Ridley's latest blog post. It turns out I am a lukewarmer, that being someone who believes that the earth is warming and that carbon has a warming effect but who doubts much of the hype about AGW and is suspicious of many of the proposed solutions. How convenient! Now I can go about the internet and just post
"Insert lukewarmer manifesto here with an additional helping of suspicion towards big corporate and a tendency towards overconfidence."
instead of making actual points and everyone can just google "lukewarmer" and know what I would have said. Of course once I have labelled myself in this fashion I am compelled to wander the blogosphere looking for people arguing and spew irrational vitriol at anyone who isn't 'on my team'.
Now if only I knew the appropriate moniker for my particular combination of political views I could really save myself some typing time.
Hooray for labels?
