The fight against climate change has "fizzled," according to Jonah Goldberg ("Obama drops climate change talk as green movement fizzles," April 28), under the relentless assault of right-wing lies and distortions that have managed to convince a befuddled public that there is serious doubt about the theory and reality of anthropogenic climate change.

Mr. Goldberg might want to spend some time perusing issues of the Economist, a right-of-center European news magazine with a sensible and sober outlook on many global issues — including climate change. For the Economist, anthropogenic global warming is real and it is a serious threat, and the United States needs to be taking more action against it.

A February, 2011 Economist article about the debate says that both economists and climatologists ought to be able to agree on a minimum strategy of carbon pricing, elimination of fossil fuel subsidies, and subsidies for basic research but complains that Washington shows little interest in taking even those basic measures.
