My two cents on Climategate
As a Libertarian, my problem with Global Warming is not that it is false, but that it’s being politicized. It’s obvious that it’s being used to promote governmental intervention and the suppression of individual rights. Is the science really good enough to require draconian governmental intervention? Is the evidence really good enough that it predicts the end of the world in the near future? It kind of reminds me of preachers giving Hellfire and Brimstone sermons – scare the Hell out of the congregation and then pass the collection plate – good way to accumulate power.
