Matt Ridley on a new Perspective on Climate Change

Ridley poses a optimistic view on AGW and the crisis in the future which is likely not to occur.   If the wealth of the world grows this much it does pose a threat to some in the form of eliminating any support for that political advocacy predicting disaster in the environment, in wealth distribution, and so on.    Progressivism cannot exist in the future with the scenarios that Ridley outlines in this video. 


Also given that IPCC is pushing the likelihood of RCP8.5, the assumptions as Ridley points out are pretty absurd.

When do deficits and governments become too large?


Government is becoming more elitist while trying to sell corrections to problems it created, what makes this possible?

Are "markets" dead as some would conjecture? Or is free enterprise what got us here?
