Slavery = Climate Change

Unlikely research award goes to a paper published in the relatively well respected (at least well read) journal "Climate Change".

Celsias explain all.

Climate Change - the new Slavery

The journal Climatic Change recently published a devastating review by Marc D Davison of the University of Amsterdam. Parallels in reactionary argumentation in the US congressional debates on the abolition of slavery and the Kyoto Protocol aims to show that there were very similar arguments used in the historic US Congress debates on Slavery as have been used in regards to the Kyoto Protocol.

Hmmmmm. This does not strike me as that devastasting and potentially combustable research which is not to say it should not be done.

It will be interesting to see if this paper generates further fall out in the mainstream press.
