The Politics of Global Warming

Read Thomas Sieger Derr’s reprise of what provokes Al Gore’s hysteria.

A sample quotation:

With the virtual apotheosis of Al Gore, talk of global warming has become pervasive?and pervasively one-sided. Churches of all varieties have signed on as a moral cause.

...anyone who finds the dissenters persuasive?including me?is suspected of being a right-wing extremist, making politics determine science. In vain do we point out that dissenters from established scientific consensus have often been dramatically vindicated. Undeterred, some of our critics have even compared us to Holocaust deniers or urged that dissenters be tried as war criminals. Or maybe burned at the stake for heresy?for our religious critics do think of us as heretics and sinners.

This dismal state of affairs is made possible by an astonishing historical amnesia. It is indisputable that climate swings are a regular feature of our planet?s life.
