Global Warming Hysteria

I should not be surprised, but the success that the global warming zealots have had in convincing Joe Public that the carbon dioxide coming out of their cars will end life on earth is just incredible.

Of all of Mencken's hobgoblins that the elites could use to keep the public agitated and manageable, the idea that human beings will be able to manage the climate of the entire planet seems so preposterous that I find it inconceivable that it could be believed. People who never passed a Geometry or Chemistry test in high school will argue with you until they're blue in the face of how "the scientists" are right, and "we've got to do something." The frosting on the cake is they believe that the same state institutions that can barely manage entirely man made traffic control or central banking systems will somehow know how to manipulate the climate to save the beach houses of upper class people.

The more of a whopper you try to put over, the better chance you'll pull it off, it seems.
