Human activity causes global warming? Not!

Tech Central Station, again, has a good review-ish article on it focusing on the latest Michael Crichton book, State of Fear, which has its main emphasis on the specious and contrived conclusions that are commonly bruited about that the planet is going to hell in a handcart, and that human activity is driving.

Having extensively followed the scientific debate on this one, like Crichton I was forced to conclude some time ago that the level of environmentalist rhetoric was far ahead of the actual level of scientific evidence to support it. There's just too much intellectually corrupt genuflection going on at the altars of political correctness - the conclusions on most of the ballyhoo'd UN reports aren't worth the paper they are printed on, except to confirm in one more way the general uselessness of that organization.

It should come as no surprise that the environmentalist horse is hitched up to the same old lefty anti-capitalist wagon that was in the service of the old and new socialist alliances. I mean, if evil corporations and benighted consumerism is ruining the planet, then a pure, clean, unselfish socialism must be the answer, right? (gagging sounds)

Anyway, back to Crichton, he started his book in pro-environmentalist mode, but got mugged by reality, and now is under widespread criticism for daring to take the opposing view. A noteworthy situation, for sure, and a good book to read both for the action and the content.
