Too Stupid


More climate change unhappiness – James Lovelock in the Guardian:

Even the best democracies agree that when a major war approaches, democracy must be put on hold for the time being. I have a feeling that climate change may be an issue as severe as a war. It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while.

The man who invented Gaia has announced that humanity isn’t evolved enough, and is ‘too stupid’ to tackle climate change. The Daily Mail blog and a site called Climate Realists are already all over it. ‘You Could Not Make It Up’ says the headline of the latter. Actually you could. It’s always been clear that Lovelock is much more attuned to the planet than he is to those of us who camp on it. But how happy this is going to make those who reject the consensus on climate change.

Just to cheer you up, because you’re not reading the Mail, here’s a small gift (via Metafilter).

    I wonde if Lovelock and many of his warmist colleagues have become fans of Leo Strauss. Democracy = bad. Precautionary principle = Noble Lie. I wonder if they figured out – by themselves – the latter before the former.
