The International Politics of Global Warming.  Conservative columnist Rich Lowry argues that even if global warming is "real", the US should not do anything about it.  "The cost-benefit analysis of battling global warming is never going to make sense for Americans.  The places that would be hurt by global warming tend to be warm, wet, and low-lying. Think Bangladesh. For the U.S., warming isn't much of a threat. So, stringent measures against global warming are really a massive foreign-aid program, but an intangible and speculative one. ...No matter what the price of gas is, the most sensible policy in the U.S. is to avoid costly schemes to fight global warming.
