# Global warming and Godwin's law

#### Andre

I think that this thread would have a more accurate place under one of the Phylosophy threads, I post here since this is where you would expect global warming talk.

Anyway, after scolding Björn Lomborg for some refreshing thoughts, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin's_law]Godwin's[/PLAIN] [Broken] law has been applied once more to global warming:

THE advance of global warming is a greater threat than was the rise of Hitler in the 1940s,...cont´d
I tend to agree. It is. The cool and objective scientific way of thinking is quickly replaced by terror of fear, the scientific method is replaced by consensus and prediction models. Those who are reluctant to accept that, are pushed into the public enemy nr1 corner, the Exxon lobby. This used to be called a witch hunt. So where communism failed to bring the big brother culture (1984) global warming appears to get successful in killing free thoughts and that may well be the worst that could happen to mankind. So he is right, indeed:

THE advance of global warming is a greater threat than was the rise of Hitler in the 1940s
