I missed this yesterday, but it’s worth reading to prepare for next year’s festivities:
To paraphrase Glenn Reynolds, environmentalists have predicted 8 of the last 0 planet-ending disasters. Between the man-made industrial ice age, crushing overpopulation, acid rain, lethal oceans, and Venus-like clouds of toxic smog cloaking the surface of the planet we should all be dead a couple times over. Yet dare express skepticism of their accuracy or question their motives in some circles, and you become a “denier” deserving only scorn, ostracism, and punishment. That’s they way the environmentalist movement has behaved for decades. It’s not the way science works; it is, however, exactly how religion works. Funny, that.
