- Global warming has nothing to do with climate or science. What it is all about is the great, historic class struggle between working people and the ruling classes.
Global warming is a great excuse for a massive expansion of government power. That, not science, is why the overlords, from the New York Times to the United Nations to Al Gore, so heartily embrace it.
For a generation steeped in the mystique of Rachel Carson, the hopes of the Woodstock generation and the institutionalized acceptance of limits, small is beautiful and the culinary magnificence of tofu, AGW is the last bastion of anti-capitalism, over-consumption, first-world guilt and the inherent evil of anthropocentrism. Think of AGW as the environmental movement's Alamo (complete with leading apostle from Tennessee), all carefully and skillfully bundled in the rhetoric of moral authority and imperative for saving the planet. Its a lot to deny.
