I was surprised to realize that I’d never written about this subject before. Maybe it’s because I find it tiresome, or maybe because I realize the insincerity of this debate. As I cover in this post, the environmental alarmists don’t actually care about the environment at all. They sermonize about how the world is coming end, but aside from maybe buying a hybrid and eating organic, they don’t act upon that belief in any substantive way. That’s because, at the bottom of it, I think that even they know it’s bogus.
There have been a dozen different environmental apocalypse theories, all promoted by the same people. This latest one — man caused climate change — isn’t necessarily any more valid than when they told us the world was freezing or that we’d all be dead from overpopulation by the year 2000.
