    Thank you so much for such a well done analysis of the paper and the hyperbole surrounding it. As a journalist and now graduate student studying climate change perceptions, I am so tired of the media hype, which only makes seriously addressing the issues of climate change so much more difficult. I hope your blog post gets a chance to be widely read. You could post it on Skeptical Science.

    Ian, What is with the “modern Malthusians” slag – apparently aimed at anyone who suggests that attempting infinite growth (of production & consumption) on a finite planet is a path towards climate disaster? Maybe there is more to it than this, but to me it seems like a smokescreen for a state capitalist (infinite growth in socialist utopia) perspective. Is your objection really much different from main stream capitalist objections to the study?
