Our news and radio waves have featured multitudes of arguments over whether global warming/cooling is caused by human activities or by natural events in our solar system. As per usual, the juveniles amongst us, most of whom control media, have set up this consideration in the all too familiar structural framework of whose team wins. We all know it, were trained within it as high schoolers at football games, and with which we continue to function as children in adult bodies: who is the winning team? Reds versus blues, science versus religion, girls versus boys, etc., etc., blah blah boring.
We should all be aware and savvy enough by now to know that there are many who exploit panic for profit. That is a given. Yes, some have, indeed, selfishly positioned themselves to profit from carbon emissions reductions and the like. Anybody who has done their own research by now knows that Al Gore, Mr. Non-Integrity, positioned himself on the board of the carbon emissions trading commission to line his pockets with the gold of hysteria even before he went out on stage to present his global warming message.
