Ivy J. Sellers, in Human Events.com, interviews Christopher Horner about his new book, "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism." In it Horner exposes the Left's blatant manipulation of environmental issues for political gain -- none more so than "global warming."
One crowning jewel:
"Consider Canada’s then-Minister Christine Stewart remarking at a meeting with the editorial board of the Calgary Herald in 1998, “No matter if the science is all phony, there are still collateral environmental benefits” to global warming policies. Climate change [provides] the greatest chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.” Former Democratic Sen. Tim Wirth, now head of Ted Turner’s UN Foundation, famously said almost precisely the same thing."
[Here is Wirth's quote: "We've got to rid the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing, in terms of economic policy and environmental policy."1]
For many Progressives, passing their agenda through the cumbersome Constitutional legislative means is deterred by knuckle-dragging antagonists. Global warming provides a smokescreen, an ozone loophole to press forward their superior ways.
