No mention of turning down the earth’s thermostat a fraction of a degree here:

Haiti has justifiably been taking up alot of energy and focus of the United Nations over the last two days. But it is worth noting that there has been a long scheduled meeting of entrepreneurs and investors concerned about climate change at the UN today. The United Nations Investors Summit on Climate Risk today will feature Al Gore, George Soros, AFL-CIO President Richard Trupka, and Ted Turner among others.  The UN Foundation has played a lead role in organizing the meeting.*   The idea here is to get stakeholders talking about ways to “to bring together leading institutional investors, state treasurers, and financial services firms worldwide to consider the scale and urgency of climate change risks and to analyze emerging investment strategies and opportunities.” You can watch the proceedings live via UN Webcast.

Pardon me, Mr. Soros, but we already have a "motor of the world". It’s free markets, coupled with individual liberty, and private property rights…

By Editor George Soros, Invisible hand Comments Off on Pardon me, Mr. Soros, but we already have a "motor of the world". It’s free markets, coupled with individual liberty, and private property rights…

…and oil is still the fuel of that motor.

Soros told PBS:

“I think that dealing with global warming will require a lot of investment. It could be the motor of the world economy in the years to come,” Soros said.

“You need a new motor, and we have a big problem: Global warming. It requires big investment, and that could be the motor of the world economy in the years to come,” Soros said in a PBS interview.

Of course, when Soros mentions “investment”, he’s really talking about “government spending”. We need to trust the invisible hand rather than the government directed hand.
