Hyping a global warming “crisis” …

April 24, 2008

Thomas Sowell writes :

A whole cottage industry has sprung up among people who get grants,

government agencies who get appropriations,

politicians who get publicity

and the perpetually indignant who get something new to be indignant about.

It gives teachers something to talk about in school instead of teaching.

Those who bother to check the facts often find that not all those who are called scientists are really scientists and not all of those who are scientists are specialists in climate.

But who bothers to check facts these days?

Rush Pearl of Wisdom:

“Global warming has all the elements of a religion:  

creation of the divine, original sin, a Garden of Eden —

and then it’s got penance!

The most important element

that it has is faith,

because the people who believe in it

can’t prove it.”
