The FT’s Gideon Rachman wrote an article. It got ‘Drudged’. He writes about the experience on his blog. In it, he says:
1) There is an unbelievable amount of anger and hatred out there – directed at everything from the UN to big business to Barack Obama. These people can read, but they cannot think.
3) There are a lot of people who believe not only that global warming is a hoax – but that it is actually a conspiracy. The fact that the most influential reports on climate change have been produced by an intergovernmental panel (IPCC) – sponsored by the UN – fuels this theory. The idea is that the UN is perpetuating a climate-change hoax, to provide an excuse to impose a world government on America. Iâ€™m all part of it apparently.
Just American whackos? Actually, we have our own nutjobs here too. Christopher Brookes writes in the Telegraph: ’2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved’. LOL.
Earlier, I’d be annoyed. But now I think that despite their hysteria, the global warming deniers have lost all political support. They probably revel in the view that no serious politician in the major English speaking world: UK, USA and Canada even Australia, subscribes to this bullshit anymore, but the fact is the battle is over. The war is won, and I’m happy. These people are politically irrelevant. Soon they’ll be as regarded with as much contempt at the 9/11 ‘troofers’, as the case should be.
