It’s been said that some environmental activists are like watermelons — green on the outside, but red on the inside.
Red, meaning communism.
That’s probably true in some cases, but I don’t want to tar the overall environmental movement. Most simply want a clean future that their kids and grandkids can live in. We all do.
The wealthier a society becomes, the more it can afford to focus on issues like the environment. Much of the world is too busy trying to survive.
In important respects, environmentalism is largely vanity. It’s the wealthy who obsess about it. But as you’ll see shortly, the science doesn’t support climate alarmism.
