Drive a Stake into the Heart of the Global Warming Scare Stories
Christopher Booker comments on the Global Warmists.
“When future generations come to look back on the alarm over global warming that seized the world towards the end of the 20th century, much will puzzle them as to how such a scare could have arisen. They will wonder why there was such a panic over a 0.4 per cent rise in global temperatures between 1975 and 1998, when similar rises between 1860 and 1880 and 1910 and 1940 had given no cause for concern…” Taken from Christopher Booker at the Telegraph.

I see it slightly differently. Politicians sought power. Environmentalists and the news media sought relevance. Sadly, we took them at their word and did not question their motives.

Industrial society is a world they do not understand and could never build. “Global warming” offered politicians and environmentalists a chance to rule over everyone. All the politicians, environmentalists and the media had to do was give up their integrity.
It was a small price to pay since they had so little.
