Submission + - Could Global Warming Make Life on Eath Better?

mikee805 writes: A lengthy article in Spiegel talks of global warming making life on Earth better not just for humans but all life. From the article: "A warmer climate helps promote species diversity", "We have to take away people's fear of climate change.Unfortunately many scientists see themselves too much as priests whose job it is to preach moralistic sermons to people.", "the only distress the Scandinavians will face is the guilty conscience that could come with benefiting from global warming." Its not all positive however "The world's new drought zones lie in the southern United States and Australia, but also in Mediterranean countries like Spain, Italy and Greece". Overall they seem to conclude that a increase of 2 degrees will have more benefits than anything else.

No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation with detail.
