Richard Hall's essay on Orwell, etc

I feel like I am one of the luckiest people in the world..
living in proximity to Richard
Hall.
He hits the nail on the head
when he warns people
about the power of builders, contractors, etc and their
ability to mimic "Big Brother" in our communities; however,
I veer from his thoughts
when it comes to global
warming but perhaps we
can agree : there has been
global warming up until
12 years ago when it stopped. If one looks at the Mildenhall  Glacier in Alaska,
you see plenty of proof of
global warming what with
the melting but most of
that occurred 12 years ago.
Look at Antarctica ....
one of the driest places
on earth but covered with
more and more ice.
Maybe I would agree to
a temporary global warming.
Climate has changed
over the years (eons)
and that is readily credible
when you look at England
over the past 10,000 years, a mere blip in human
history. It was covered by
palm trees and had balmy
weather. In 1978, there
was a global cooling warning.
My take on global warming
is the environment INDUSTRY has screamed
"the sky has fallen, the sky
has fallen.....and thusly,
cashing in on threats
of coastal flooding, etc.
Scam is the word most
appropriate adjective.
And when one sees all
of the scientists who
believe in global warming,
one would find that most
of them have nothing to
do with climate in their
professional life. When
they decided to nix
"global warming" about
five years ago, to "Climate
Change"  that, in itself, tells a lot about  the movement

Richard, the "PDA slayer" is a Marin gem.

Thank you, Gerald, for having the courage to share some maturity of perspective on the "global warming", "climate change". now "climate chaos" promotion. Yes, the world was warming up from the last cooling spell. Starting in 1976 and lasting until 1998, the earth was warming and it was a welcome change. We were fearing a new ice age back then and now we are fearing the opposite. I think about 2030 the talk will be of an ice age coming again. Politicians are always eager to use whatever current fad is making its way about the general population to their own advantage and the present focus on atmospherics is no exception.
