Denying global warming

I'm notorious in online pagan groups for denying global warming and saying that environmentalism is a failed cause that should be replaced with ecology.

I'm rather proud of that.

Right, because “For Your Own Good” was such a rousing success with Prohibition, explicit song lyrics, university speech codes, global warming, and Obamacare.

from crux № 11 — Ultimate truth

I've seen the arguments in enough other contexts to distrust anyone who claims rationality prevents any opposing view. Even more so when they dismiss any other possibility unheard because they have the Ultimate Truth That Must Not Be Questioned.

NeoNotes — An obvious solution

Plant more trees.

That's my advice, and I'm a tree hugging pagan.

I'm also a libertarian who supports the free market and personal choice. And I support ecology over environmentalism. Ecology is about understanding the connections and the trade offs. Environmentalism is about politics and controlling the behavior of others.

Seriously, if one end of the carbon cycle is a problem, we should adapt.

Plant more trees.

NeoNotes are the selected comments that I made on other boards, in email, or in response to articles where I could not respond directly.
