I find the haranguing, bullying and name calling by Bill Baum, Eric Grimsrud and Jerry Elwood offensive. Sadly this behavior along with irrational alarmism is on the rise — led by Obama, the media, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other activist groups.
These activists understand that fear is a primary tool used to coerce people into agreements for policies that would otherwise be unthinkable. Why the urgency? They fear the growing body of scientific evidence which questions the current global warming or climate change theory. If CO2 fails to be the demon it is portrayed to be, they could lose the reason for this current political power grab for greater governmental control of natural resources, our economy, and the international redistribution of wealth.
