For a decade, those liberals who know that I think that anthropogenic global warming is a scam that was invented to make some people very rich (AlBore, is that you?), even while it transfers vast sums of wealth from the First World to the Third World, have called me some pretty nasty things: ignorant, flat-earther, climate denier, stupid, etc.
That’s why I really love articles such as this one, by Michael Fumento, which neatly sum up why I was right and my critics were wrong.
Incidentally, I’ll add my usual caveat: I believe that humans are stewards of the earth, both for those plants and animals sharing the planet with us and for future generations of humans. We have a responsibility to encourage, not destroy, its bounty and its beauty. But I do not like being brow-beaten by Leftists into believing that we are facing imminent apocalypse unless I give up all trappings of 21st century life and ship my money to Leftist organizations or redistribute it to fulfill Leftist utopian goals. Nor do I like seeing my children on the receiving end of an un-ending stream of Leftist propaganda, all of it wrapped up in a global warming package.
