Read the article below and think about it a while outside of the personal context of Senator Boxer, just as everyday citizen who is a believer.

Patrick, this post really belongs under the "Projection: A Left Wing Disease" thread. S13

Quote:British Principal Turns Off Heat to Classrooms to Reduce Carbon Footprint
Amid nearly freezing temperatures, a principal reportedly turned off the heat at Ansford Academy in England to show how the school could reduce its carbon footprint.

Principal Rob Benzie came under fire from staff and parents, who called the plan "beyond stupid," according to The Sun.

"I've never worked in such cold," one teacher told The Sun. "I'm all for saving the planet, but this was barbaric."

Students donned coats, hats and scarves in their classrooms as the temperature dropped to 34 degrees.

"Turning the heat off in December is just mental," one parent told The Sun.

Benzie defended the experiment, which he said was an idea pitched by students in the school's eco-group.

"I'd like it to be a regular event. We have too much heating -- sometimes I have to turn it down as it can make students fall asleep," Benzie told The Sun.

We don't call them the Looney Left for nothing.

I think they should be encouraged to do this more often. That way, the number of AGW True Believers will automatically be reduced, out of a solid dose of reality.

Well,it has been pointed out that more people die each year from cold weather temperatures than die from hot weather temperatures.
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Ahh, but that doesn't matter to the Buzz's of this world. If everyone in the Omaha area was required to go around outside in t-shirts, in the middle of winter, he would still be worried about the problems created by a warmer globe.

The anti carbon fanaticism matches (or exceeds) the anti nicotine fanaticism in vigor and in kind. The latter is lest expensive to society than the former.
Jefferson: I place economy among the first and important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.

Agreed.

Funny, it is a very similar intellectual approach, I agree.

Freeman Dyson, who follows in Einstein's footsteps, explains why he is an AGW Skeptic: Climatologists are no Einsteins, says his successor.

Quote:Freeman Dyson is a physicist who has been teaching at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton since Albert Einstein was there. When Einstein died in 1955, there was an opening for the title of "most brilliant physicist on the planet." Dyson has filled it.

So when the global-warming movement came along, a lot of people wondered why he didn’t come along with it. The reason he’s a skeptic is simple, the 89-year-old Dyson said when I phoned him.

"I think any good scientist ought to be a skeptic," Dyson said.................


Dyson said his skepticism about those computer models was borne out by recent reports of a study by Ed Hawkins of the University of Reading in Great Britain that showed global temperatures were flat between 2000 and 2010 — even though we humans poured record amounts of CO-2 into the atmosphere during that decade.

That was vindication for a man who was termed "a civil heretic" in a New York Times Magazine article on his contrarian views. Dyson embraces that label, with its implication that what he opposes is a religious movement. So does his fellow Princeton physicist and fellow skeptic, William Happer.

"There are people who just need a cause that’s bigger than themselves," said Happer. "Then they can feel virtuous and say other people are not virtuous."

To show how uncivil this crowd can get, Happer e-mailed me an article about an Australian professor who proposes — quite seriously — the death penalty for heretics such as Dyson. As did Galileo, they can get a reprieve if they recant.
