As Motivações Políticas dos "Catastrofistas Ambientais"

Na TechCentralStation

Surely Houghton, a former chief executive of the British Meteorological Office, has kept up with the research. He should know the science behind global warming is uncertain, that the models used to predict the climate into the future have been found faulty. Yet he chooses to feed the illusion. Is it simply a pretext that allows him to indict America for its perceived excesses?

"Nowadays," Houghton mused after making his statement, "everyone knows that the U.S. is the world's biggest polluter, and that with only one 20th of the world's population it produces a quarter of its greenhouse gas emissions."

Perhaps Houghton couldn't help it, but the more he talked, the more he revealed himself and most of the eco-activist movement. Sounding the global warming alarm is not about protecting the environment as much as it is about imposing the egalitarian ideal. It's about shaming the U.S. and the West for consumption habits and all the benefits generated by our system. Exaggerating the threat is just an effective means to achieving an end
