Useful Tool

Via Mark Steyn:

Handy tool the Anthropogenic Global Warming theory is. Listen in on environmental activist Johh Feeny:
We must end world population growth, then reduce population size. That means lowering population numbers in industrialised as well as developing nations.

To which Steyn adds, most insightfully:
It's fascinating to observe how almost any old totalitarian racket becomes respectable once it's cloaked in enviro-hooey. For example, restrictions on freedom of movement were previously the mark of the Soviet Union et al. But in Britain, they're proposing limits on your right to take airline flights to other countries - and, as it's in the name of environmental responsibility, everyone thinks it's a grand idea.
