Oh and Jeff, did you see this page in Rutan's piece
refuting climate change?
Modern Human-Extinction Scares
• Silent Spring, DDT - 1960s & 1970s (outlawing DDT killed millions)
• Global Nuclear War - 1950s thru 1980s
• Global cooling, Ice Age/starvation - 1956 to 1977
• Hole in the Ozone layer, caused by CFCs, 1970s & 1980s (We now know that the Ozone changes were not caused by human CFCs)
• Nuclear Winter, nuke-caused ice Age - 1980s & 1990s
• Asteroid Impact - 1930 to present (a real, but remote risk)
• Global Warming - 1929 to 1969 and 1987 to 2003
• “Climate Change” - 2003 to present
Is ‘Climate Change’ just another over-blown scare?
Call me nutty, but I think there might be a pattern here.
Global nuke war just a "scare"? DDT is harmless? Ozone hole not caused by humans? Over population not a threat?
I guess most claims toward man made damage to the environment are without any real basis!
