Let’s be clear. The fear of global warming and fear that global cooling is caused by global warming and fear of calamitous and catastrophic climate change–all caused by America and industrialization–that fear is a mass mania of the West. We do not find these fears anywhere else.
The rest of humanity which of course is most of humanity–i.e., those who live in Brazil, Russia, India, and China and in the developing and Third world countries–they do not share these fears and delusions. And all who do in the West are Western Leftists.
Scientists outside Western academia liken modern climatology to the study of ancient astrology. So, even though all global warming alarmists are Leftists, I believe there is a keyword missing here. The dynamic of the impending Apocalypse that is the most ‘telling’ characteristic of the purveyors of global warming alarmism–and the self-defeating, the nihilism and the righteous vengefulness we see coming from the True Believers–is a symptom of serious psychological dysfunction. There were Leftists before global warming alarmism so the missing word is ‘sick.’ Now we’ve got sick Leftists.
Global warming is not a problem but fear of it is. Climate change can be a problem but that’s what climate does–it changes and that is natural–all we can do is prepare for it. The fear about climate change, however, is a symptom of a big problem.
