Buzz Aldrin was in the Telegraph, with a nice note on the hottest hoax around:
But while trying to spread the word about the possibilities of space, Dr Aldrin said he was sceptical of climate change theories.
"I think the climate has been changing for billions of years," he said.
"If it's warming now, it may cool off later. I'm not in favour of just taking short-term isolated situations and depleting our resources to keep our climate just the way it is today."
Note to Dr. Aldrin:
The climate weenies can't predict the weather accurately for next year any better than an almanac.
While there are plenty of common-sense arguments to be made in favor of clean air, water, and smart stewardship of resources, keep your antennae tuned to two frequencies:
- Guilt--you should be ashamed of X behavior, possession, or attitude that is perfectly reasonable and legal
- Fear--you should capitulate to the superior ideas of authority Y, because if you don't you'll be assaulted/impoverished/internationally shamed/die of cancer
Apparently Dr. Aldrin hasn't received the briefing.
Probably hanging around Dr. Dyson too much.
Right on cue, "A plethora of corroborative data shows that this year’s sea ice levels in the Arctic are the lowest seen in 800 years."
