Global Warming Ideologues Exploit Tragedies

By June 12, 2008Global Warming

This is appalling. And profoundly cruel.

From the Center for American Program Action Fund:

The evidence for the consequences of global warming is appearing with alarming frequency. This morning’s headlines are filled with tales of deadly weather: “At least four people were killed and about 40 injured when a tornado tore through a Boy Scout camp in western Iowa on Wednesday night”; “two people are dead in northern Kansas after tornadoes cut a diagonal path across the state”; “[t]wo Maryland men with heart conditions died this week” from the East Coast heat wave. These eight deaths come on top of reports earlier this week that the heat wave “claimed the lives of 17 people” and the wave of deadly storms killed 11 more: “six in Michigan, two in Indiana and one each in Iowa and Connecticut,” as well as one man in New York.

Deaths from tornadoes and heat exhaustion and floods and other weather events occur every year. They have throughout history. What’s new is the quasi-religious zeal with which the environmental left exploits these deaths to condemn our civilization and our prosperity.

It’s typical of ideologues throughout history, though, seeing no individuals, just causes.
