Have you noticed how much the call for combating global warming crusade has in common with how we got into the Iraq war?
In both cases, there are “experts” who tell us that evidence justifying action is undeniable. They say, “The risk of doing nothing is too great for us to do nothing.” And as a fallback position they say, “Even if we’re wrong, we’ll still be doing some good in the world.”
Kind of makes me think man-made CO2 emissions will turn out to be the biggest case of nonexistent WMD since Saddam Hussein’s nukes. (Or maybe even bigger!) What do you think?
This is a comment from a reader on Camille Paglias opinion page today. Funny stuff. Of course it’s only true in the medias perception of the whole WMD debacle. There’s no question Sadaam Husein had them; heck, they’re probably still there. The problem was Bush’s underestimation of how difficult they would be to find. After all, when a mayonnaise jar full of enough biological agent to wipe out the city of Baltimore can be stored in a pantry in some Baghdad apartment… makes it pretty hard to find.
Anyway, the whole “Global Warming” thing… geesh. It won’t be long till they are clamoring about the impending “Second Ice Age” again like they were back in the 70’s. It would be interesting to see if Al Gore holds any stock in one of these Compact Flourescent lightbulb companies…
