"It takes faith to believe in global warming. You need to pretend the sun is not the major factor in how warm Earth is at any given time. You need to pretend that your choice of light bulb can really impact the temperature of the planet. You need to pretend deviating temperatures of the past, before industrialization, didn't mean anything, while deviating temperatures in the industrial age spell doom and gloom. You need to pretend that buying carbon credits from Al Gore will actually save the planet. You need to pretend massive, government-forced redistributions of wealth can reduce the temperature of the planet. That's a lot of pretending." No problem! Americans can handle that much pretending, and a hell of a lot more! We?re #1! We?re #1!
