Gas Pump Alarmism
Warning stickers coming to a pump near you.
We’ll give eco-fascists credit for one thing – a strong devotion to hyperbole. By their logic, no atmospheric event exists that’s not somehow a result of global warming. And no evidence to the contrary will prevent even more extreme alarmism. In San Francisco, the environmental group 350.org is now demanding labels be posted on gasoline pumps that warn Americans of the danger presented by “dirty oil.” Citing the popular talking point that “we’re not going to feel the effects until well into the future,” group member Jamie Brooks claims, “The goal isn’t to take transportation away from people and say, ‘You’re a bad person.’” Instead, “The goal is to create a signal saying, ‘You need to change your behavior.’” Unsurprisingly, Brooks didn’t bother to offer a practical alternative. On the other hand, we’ll be glad to offer them a horse and carriage to aid in distributing the stickers.
