Global warming denial is now officially a psychological disorder

So say the shrinks: you’d have to be crazy to disagree with Al Gore. Remember the good old days of the Soviet Union when dissidents were locked away in mental institutions under the same theory, namely that to disagree with communism was prima facie proof that you were nuts? Thank goodness that, with the new White House initiative calling for loyal citizens to report suspicious behavior of malcontents, there will be a readily accessible list of people to lock up when we’ve finally had enough, damn it!

    On a related note, the APA also came out against reparative therapy for homosexuality (i.e., attempts to change sexual orientation through counseling). Do they do any actual science, or is it just a political organization?

    I think Chris can give a first hand account of so called homosexual therapy.

    after all, like in Iran, this is Greenwich CT and there is no such thing as a homosexual.

      Gee, OG, you might want to get out around town more. Greenwich has always been a pretty welcoming town for homosexuals – they’ve been in our schools (four of my very best teachers ever were of that persuasion) town offices and even living right here – why, there might be one living next to you! Just as an aside, small government types like myself tend to be far more tolerant than lefties and, were I gay, I’d trust libertarians far more than lefties, whose tolerance is mercurial and subject to the ever-changing whims of popular opinion. That happens when you have no fixed principles to guide you.

    Glad you can take a rib CF, and you are much more liberal….errr I mean tolerant than I thought.

      Instapundit, law professor Glenn Reynolds, likes to describe his idea of a sound world as one that accommodates “happily married gay couples with assault rifles in their closet”. I agree.

    Chris: you forgot the church pulpit (St Michaels).

    Back to the original issue, aren’t cults the ones who are intollerant of dessent and questioning? The global warming movement has many of the same characteristics of a good cult.

    I say you have to be crazy to believe man has much influence over the world’s climate.

    Roget’s Thesaurus defines grandiosity as … an exaggerated sense of one’s importance, power, knowledge or identity. It often has religious overtones. The term “grandiosity” is used to describe the larger-than-life feelings of superiority often experienced by those in a manic episode.

    Sounds like the above psychological disorder is a more appropriate description for AlGore and his claque of global-warming, climate-changing, sky-is-falling acolytes.

    the only people with guns are the cops and bad guys.

    I always liked the George Carlin line: “Save the planet? The planet is going to shake us off like a bad cold.”
