Don’t know where I get that idea from:
By rights these activists ought to be treated with tremendous suspicion. As we know, for example, from Greenpeace’s appalling campaigning track record – such as its mendacious smearing of Shell over Brent Spar, and its dishonest representations about the Greenland ice shelf – these environmental groups comprise hard-left political activists entirely unsuited to dispensing unbiased policy advice. Yet, time and again, these misanthropic, Gaia-worshipping Luddites with their Mickey Mouse degrees in sustainability, whale management and polar bear empathy studies and their half-baked, junk-science-fuelled opinions on how to save the world from capitalism and the non-existent problem of “climate change”, are granted seats at the top table in every government environmental decision-making process.
We didn’t vote for these soap-dodging, bunny-hugging loons yet, increasingly, they are ruling all our lives. It’s time we followed India’s example and told them exactly where they can stick their green agenda.
He shouldn’t be so shy with his opinions. It makes it hard to tell where he stands.
PS: I largely agree with him.

“Think I’ll go visit the Great Lakes.”
Is there nothing global warming can’t do?

“We’re still here!”
So, PJTV’s Michelle Fields went out among the people in Washington, D.C., to find out what self-described “environmentalists” thought about global warming… or, maybe, global cooling. Or maybe both at the same time. Either way, most were sure government should do something about it. Whatever “it” is.
Just do something!
Actually, I agree with the last person’s mother: they can’t even accurately predict the weather a week out, so why take seriously predictions for a century from now?
But, government should do something!
PS: That 97% consensus among scientists that catastrophic anthropogenic climate change is real that one person mentioned? It’s bunk.

The end is nigh!
With modern-day eco-doom cultists predicting catastrophe almost daily unless we DO SOMETHING NOW!!!, my friend Jon Gabriel decided to take a look back at 13 apocalyptic predictions made for the first Earth Day, way back in the Nixon administration. Here are a couple of goodies:
“[One] theory assumes that the earth’s cloud cover will continue to thicken as more dust, fumes, and water vapor are belched into the atmosphere by industrial smokestacks and jet planes. Screened from the sun’s heat, the planet will cool, the water vapor will fall and freeze, and a new Ice Age will be born.” — Newsweek magazine
“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.” — Kenneth Watt
Funny, I don’t recall any glaciers showing up in Los Angeles in the last few years…
Read the rest for 11 more amazing predictions of doom and bookmark it for reference for when someone tries to sell you on global warming.
