Carol Platt Liebau: Chilling

Chilling

Writing in the Nation, Alexander Cockburn is frighteningly open about the real leftist agenda behind global warming:

We should never be more vigilant than at the moment a new dogma is being installed. The claque endorsing what is now dignified as "the mainstream theory" of global warming stretches all the way from radical greens through Al Gore to George W. Bush, who signed on at the end of May. The left has been swept along, entranced by the allure of weather as revolutionary agent, naïvely conceiving of global warming as a crisis that will force radical social changes on capitalism.

Cockburn is quite right. Much of the new "environmentalist" mania has less to do with protecting Mother Nature than it does with finding new and creative ways to impose government control over both the economy and over people's daily lives. Many of its adherents display the same totalitarian impulses that wreaked such havoc throughout most of the twentieth century.

Cockburn is right about something else: The supposed "consensus" on global warming doesn't really exist.

Carol,

There certainly may not be general consensus on global warming, but there is scientific consensus. Not one paper published in a scientific, peer reviewed jounal disproves the scientific consensus of human causation of a warming planet. I challlenge you to find one.
