Quote of the Day: “Everyone Will Disappear In A Cloud Of Blue Steam”

Paul Ehrlich Image via Wikipedia
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper

T.S. Eliot was so wrong!

Environmental pontificator and all-round scary guy Paul Ehrlich tells us the world is ending in a cloud of blue steam, and the pink steam crowd are simply wrong, wrong, wrong!

The great thing about climate catastrophism is, you don't ever have to be right. "Well, we dodged a bullet this time; new incoming bullet, catast! catast! catastrophe!!!!

Climate catastrophism. Limos. Private jets. Houseboats. Mansions. Book deals. Ever-expanding carbon footprints, neat-o PowerPoint slides...

It's a great gig, if you can get it.

Your knowledge of climate science is apparently as good and accurate as your knowledge of literature.

I'm sure T.H. Lawrence was wrong about many things, but he didn't write those lines.

Thanks, Ted. Jet-lag.
