Global warming and Godwin's law

    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:
