What Could You Really Do With All That Money?

As it turns out -- EVERYTHING important!

If you had all the money that plans like Kyoto would cost the world what could you do with it and how effective could you be? Remember, for all the hype of Kyoto it would have only put off any increase in warming by a decade.

Here is a very persuasive video and the description:
Economist Bjorn Lomborg makes a persuasive case for prioritizing the world's biggest problems, asking "If we had $50 billion to spend over the next four years to do good in the world, where should we spend it?" His recommendations - based on the findings of the 2004 Copenhagen Consensus - controversially place global warming at the bottom of the list (and AIDS prevention at the top). Lomborg was named one of the 100 Most Influential People by Time magazine after the publication of his controversial book, The Skeptical Environmentalist which challenged widely-held beliefs that the environment is getting worse. Now the Danish economist is taking on the world's biggest problems with his Copenhagen Consensus. (Recorded February 2005 in Monterey, CA. Duration: 17:27)

Humans have a wonderful way of inventing and adapting and if there really is a global warming crisis (way overused term) then perhaps one of the people saved by following the advice here of feeding, educating, and providing clean water to every human on the planet (instead of blowing it on AGW scams) might be the savior or Einstein of climate.
(That was very poorly worded, sorry my mind isn't firing correctly tonight).
