Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

James Fallows spots this:

In it, you can see a climate prediction from the "father of global warming" James Hansen.  The thing is, the prediction is from 1981.

And it's spot on accurate (indeed even a little too conservative).

But millions of dollars in research grants from carbon industries (what Mitt calls carbon-based lifeforms) have made sure that climate science is not believed by the public at large.

We're kind of doomed.
