I saw something by T J Gilles in the Billings Outpost a few weeks ago, headlined 'Scientists Give Bleak View of Global Warming': a collection of quotes from various speakers, not all on the same wavelengths it would seem, or maybe it was just difficult for Gilles to write so fast, but all had the same Chicken Little assumptions. The last two paragraphs had me a little worried:
I thought Tooley was on our side. When he was Mayor he sounded reasonable. Perhaps I wasn't listening carefully enough. Watch out for former mayors with PowerPoint presentations. And then of course, if that is not enough to worry you, note the groups that sponsored the meeting: these sound like special interest groups that are supported by us taxpayers. Apparently they are not having budget problems. Is this what Stalin or maybe Lenin had in mind when one or the other opined that 'When we hang the capitalists they will sell us the rope we use.'
