Samuelson vs the Enviros (Go Bob!)

Robert Samuelson over at WaPo cuts loose on the posturing of politicians [and activists] pretending to save the environment.
What we have now is a respectable charade. Politicians and advocates make speeches, convene conferences and formulate plans. They pose as warriors against global warming. The media participate in the resulting deception by treating their gestures seriously. One danger is that some of these measures will harm the economy without producing significant environmental benefits. Policies motivated by political gain will inflict public pain. Why should anyone applaud?
Beats me!

Read it here.

It's always been hard to take these people seriously and over time they have become more and more ridiculous. Maybe if some of them took off their clothes in public..., oh yeah, they did.
