I'll believe global warming is a crisis when the people
telling me it is a crisis start acting like
it is a crisis. -- Glenn Reynolds
Every time I think we have received the summit of a very large universe of hypocrisy on global warming, I am unpleasantly surprised. I learned yesterday that the New York Times, already a huge source of global warming hypocrisy, just extended the hypocrisy mountain to the moon.
The Times frequently writes on the subject of global warming, including, last week:
In the last three days, the NYT destroyed a forest trees to write four stories on this topic.
Since the election, they have poured the criticism on Donald Trump.
Their columnist, Nicholas Kristof, has written a number of over-the-top pieces about the supposed horrors of global warming, including storms like Katrina.
No, the hypocrisy of the NYT and its columnists (Kristof, Tom Friedman, etc.) has reached new heights.
Other than on a single occasion for a weather research project involving weather radar and downbursts, I have never been on a private jet. I drive a Ford Taurus. Yet, I read -- constantly -- in the Times that I -- and, the rest of us, need to cut our carbon footprints.
What a bunch of hypocrites! Utter, utter hypocrites.
Never have Professor Reynolds' words been more germane.
