  1. I have to say “daily evidence of envionmental destruction” seems a bit silly. Watch Mary Poppins. That’s the CLEANED UP Disney version of pollution in 1800s London. Now, what do you think about modern coal power?

  2. It says “daily evidence of environmental destruction”. What such evidence?
    It’s us who could go crazy when we see the destruction e.g. of the nuclear industry in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Italy; or the destruction of drilling projects that makes fuel prices rise. Or if we see pictures of the Third World that suffers a lack of industry. There we can see how our industry is a force for good and we can worry that there is an environmental movement that hates this industry.

  3. Even the commenters over there figured it out – the stressed out whack jobs were that way to start with. They become attracted to crusades in order to validate their sorry lives. When it dawns on them that they can’t accomplish their lofty goals, at least not in their lifetime, they start to come unglued. When real science refutes many of their basic tenets, they get downright nasty, even violent. Liberalism IS a mental disease.

  4. The Grist article author, Michelle Nijhuis, is just one more among a huge number of people who credits anti-skeptic book author Ross Gelbspan with finding allegedly ‘smoking gun’ evidence of skeptic scientists’ fossil fuel industry corruption: “…the industry and ideological ties of many climate-change skeptics, now widely reported, received little attention until a former Boston Globe editor, Ross Gelbspan, exposed those links in his 1997 investigative book The Heat Is On.” ( http://www.miller-mccune.com/science-environment/the-doubt-makers-4542/ )

    One has to wonder if she plans on questioning Al Gore, who contradicted his own long-term praise of Gelbspan, when he gave credit to the NY Times for the infamous “reposition global warming” accusation phrase in his Rolling Stone article last week. For more on that, please see my article at RedState: “Pt II: Is Gore’s Accusation of Skeptic Climate Scientists Still a Hoax?” http://www.redstate.com/russellc/2011/06/22/pt-ii-is-gores-accusation-of-skeptic-climate-scientists-still-a-hoax/

  5. Not sure they weren’t crazy to begin with. To quote the late great Fats Domino, “ain’t that a shame”.
