“Most any spiritual tradition asks us to believe things that may at first seem implausible. However, some degree of ‘belief in the unbelievable’ may actually be a necessary component of deconditioning ourselves to the narrow and restricted consensus reality of our particular culture.” Gagdad in the Coonifesto

A decent review of why the right is so hostile to the political greens, from a libertarian forum, Q & O
Bill McKibben wonders why the right is so down on man-made global warming. He’s convinced it’s the hottest thing to come along politically since woman’s suffrage. What is it we folks on the right don’t get?
I’ve been holding on to the link to the letter of resignation of Harold Lewis from the Society of Physics. He writes a damning summary of how science has been politicized. Lewis’s resignation letter is linked here.
It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montford’s book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist.
