More Global Warming
Dr. Lindzen contributed to a BBC documentary debunking global warming. It was very interesting, but it is hard to get past the fact that most scientists still believe in it. Michael Critchton's novel "State of Fear" takes an interesting, though fictional, look at the issue.
I'm not opposed to taking care of the Earth as long as it does not come at the price of human lives. Sometimes it seems environmentalist see human beings as terrestrial parasites and not souls with dignity.
People need to be our priority. When the World Health Organization reports that 4 million children die each year due to smoke inhalation because they lack electricity, it is hard to convince me that developing natural resources as quickly and cheaply as possible is not a moral imperative.
