Roger L. Simon on the revelation he had about the whole Anthropogenic Global Warming cult while attending the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen:
I was trying to figure out what it was about the conference that so perplexed and disturbed. And then, before the Caudillo [Hugo Chavez] had concluded his tedious remarks and long before the “meaningful deal” between the world leaders was announced, I realized what it was. We had returned to the Middle Ages.
A high tech Middle Ages, of course, but still the Middle Ages. Forget the Renaissance, forget the Enlightenment, forget Spinoza, Locke, Galileo and everybody else, we had returned to our roots as gullible and idiotic human beings, as willing to believe in the primacy of anthropogenic global warming as we would in the sighting of the Madonna at a river crossing twelve kilometers south of Sienna in 1340.
