If global warming and fears of climate change were about science and not politics, then it would not be a Left versus right issue now would it? Obviously it’s all political.
For all of the evolution of man, mastery over the vagaries of nature was as prized as the search for truth for its own sake. Now that the nihilism of Leftist utopianiam has reached its zenith in the West, what had value is now worthless and truth doesn’t matter anymore.
Put another way, who do you prefer, George Washington, or Mao Tse-Tung?
The answer is simple:
• If you are a Tibetan Buddhist monk, you prefer a Godfearing protector of personal and religious freedom like George Washington.
• If you are a tenured professor in the government-education complex known as Western academia, then Ward Churchill is more inspiring than Winston Churchill, the mass murderer Mao is your philosopher, and Bush-haters Castro and Chavez are your comrades.
Hot World Syndrome—fear of a hotter, more intimidating world than it actually is prompting a desire for more protection than is warranted by any actual threat.
A Chance Meeting–
We toured south along the Bicentennial Bike Trail in the Summer of 1980, working up appetites covering ~70 miles per day and staying at hiker/biker campgrounds at night along the Oregon/California coast (they were 50¢ a day at that time). The day's ride over, and after setting up tents, hitting the showers, and making a run to a close-by store, it was time to relax. The third in our little bicycle tour group, Tom, was about 30 yards away conversing with another knot of riders and treating himself to an entire cheesecake for dinner. He probably figured Jim and I would joke about what a pig he was eating that whole pie and decided to eat among strangers. Three hours later after sharing stories and remarking on a few coincidences that turned up here and there, Tom and one of the former strangers realized they were cousins, meeting in this most unlikely place for the first time. ~Mac
