Why be suspicious when all of the political hacks line up on one side? When the Hollywood types line up with them? When that side is near- hysterical in its self-righteousness? When they tip their hand by saying that the debate is over? And when that side's position is that the role of the state must be significantly expanded?
Everyone will recognize that I refer to the "global warming" faith. Joel Schwartz points us to the Planet Gore site -- and his January 23 post re the Yale 2008 Environmental Performance Index. The many entries at the site offer another side of the debate -- presuming, of course, that there is still a debate.
