Global Warming/Climate Change/Henny Penny Hysteria, that grandest Leftwing crisis/hoax of them all continues apace to discredit itself. It’s always been about power and money, and there’s going to be considerably less of both in the coming Trump years. People will be too busy solving real problems (creating Inner City jobs and charter schools, eradicating ISIS) to be interested in imaginary ones; so this scam’s shelf life is just about to run out.
“Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; 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, most of them imaginary.” H.L. Mencken
