Bone-Headed Beliefs5 June 2011
I already bang on, at length sometimes, about the stupidity, the heartlessness and plain downright immorality of politicians. Then I follow that up with a swipe at those who would introduce religion into every part of the daily lives of those who don’t hold a belief in any sort of supernatural power.
But I have never for some reason touched on the subject of the other scourge of our society which will have a far greater impact on the lives of all of us – those who believe that the whole climate change debate is some sort of left-wing conspiracy aided and abetted by tens of thousands of scientists around the world who just want to make life a little more difficult for us, while at the same time punishing big business for their audacity in making lots of money.
Excellent article in the SMH this weekend from Richard Glover. I particularly like his prediction that in years to come, the climate-change deniers will become climate-change-denial-deniers. “It wasn’t me, guv. I agreed with it all along but what could I do?”.
