The Politics of AGW

Jonah Goldberg writing in NRO further buttresses the political aspects ofthe AGW debate with the following examples:
Tim Wirth, a former senator and now chairman of the United Nations Foundation, once said: “We’ve got to ride the global-warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing, in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”


New York Times columnist and prominent warm-monger Thomas Friedman has repeatedly said (most recently this week) that he doesn’t care if global warming is a “hoax” because, even if it is, the fear of it will force us to do what we need to do.

Fear is the tool by which they wish reach an end. I for one do not believe that is in the best interests of a free people.
