Some Good Quotes About Climate Hysteria

Good stuff. Here are a couple of the quotes, from his sidebar, grabbed without permission. 😉
I think this one very nicely explains the entirety of the various leftist ideologies and a few non-leftist ones.
“The desire to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it” — H L Mencken
“In science, refuting an accepted belief is celebrated as an advance in knowledge; in religion it is condemned as heresy”. (Bob Parks, Physics, U of Maryland). No prizes for guessing how global warming skepticism is normally responded to.
More proof that CAGW isn’t science and has little to do with science.
Time was, people warning the world “Repent – the end is nigh!” were snickered at as fruitcakes. Now they own the media and run the schools.
The “precautionary principle” is a favourite Greenie idea — but isn’t that what George Bush was doing when he invaded Iraq? Wasn’t that a precaution against Saddam getting or having any WMDs? So Greenies (who believe in the PP) all agree with the Iraq intervention? If not, why not?
The precautionary principle also sates that we should attack Iran to end its nuclear program. We should also develop a space-based system to deflect any incoming asteroids (a hazard far more real than CAGW.)
There’s a lot of other interesting links from that page, too.
