The Chilling Effect
Tuesday, Oct 6th, 2009

That’s the question from’s Marc Morano, who points to this article from self-titled “global warming activist” Laurie David. In turn, she relates a letter in which a Captain at sea writes of an “insidious invasion of the biosphere by our plastic waste is in some ways more alarming for us humans than global warming. Our bodies have evolved to handle carbon dioxide, the nemesis of global warming, indeed, we exhale it with every breath.”

Good golly, look how fast the enviros are considering their next big alarmist target. The public fear of global warming appears to be dissipating, in the United States at least, which will mean a cooling of fundraising for green efforts. So what do we get? A complaint about plastic bags.

Let’s hope we can mark this day in history as the beginning of the fever break for global warming panic, though we may also mark it as the beginning of the next Plastics Pandemic scare.
