Climatologists are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change, or even to allay its effects [...]
Scientists see few signs that government leaders anywhere are even prepared to take the simple measures of stockpiling food or of introducing the variables of climatic uncertainty into economic projections of future food supplies. The longer the planners delay, the more difficult will they find it to cope with climatic change once the results become grim reality.

And aren't global warming believers glad they didn't?
