Okay, so now I know that you define Alarmists as those who believe that everyone needs to stop and go back to the Stone age to save the world.

I'm sure there are some who promote that "solution". But very few, and the absurdity of their position marginalizes them quite effectively. Most who see a need for change also believe that all nations should raise their respective standards of living to whatever level is appropriate for them.

But nobody who wants to be taken seriously is promoting that developed nations lower their standards of living. That would be a non-starter. That's not to say that developed nations shouldn't change. Just that there is no need to make changes that lower their standard of living.

One big problem is the widespread disinformation that portrays anyone who believes AGW is real must be an alarmist and want us to go back to the stone age. Just isn't true.
