Crying Fire In A Crowded Environmental Theatre
Too many self-appointed environmental gurus act like spoiled children screaming, “Look at me!” Several leading members of the Global Warming Gang have admitted that they deliberately exaggerate their prophesies to gain public attention. Unfortunately mainstream, liberal media immediately anoint each hysterical new hypothesis with the label of scientific truth.
Even our first liberal-progressive-socialist Supreme Court Justice, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., opined that there are limits to free speech. Crying fire falsely in a crowded theatre is likely to result in serious injury or death as people scramble frantically to escape.
For a review and debugging of the many, often contradictory, prognostications of doom, read Apocalypse Not: Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Worry About End Times.
