Ancient priests claimed that blood sacrifice motivates the gods to act kindly on our behalf. The same sort of magic is promulgated today by politicians and their so called scientist lackeys. Stop using hairspray and deoderant and the ozone hole will heal, they claim. When it heals, of course, they make it proof of their ridiculous claims.
Reducing carbon dioxide will save what exactly? Trees? I don’t think so. Will it make Canada colder? Who, precisely, finds that desirable? If the seas do not rise precipitously and the sun does not burn us to a crisp they credit their warnings of doom with saving the planet.
These are nothing more or less than shaman con men seeking to bilk society. Gore is the quintessential example of a con artist become wealthy. These are charlatans, deserving of imprisonment, not plaudits.

The hole in the Ozone Layer which started with the release of Van Halen I, started shrinking after the release of Nevermind by Nirvana. It seems that the expansion of the hole coincided with the Hair Metal period where sales of Final Net went through the roof. No pun intended. As “the roof” was the nomenclature for the big hair sported by head bangers and their girlfriends. The epicenter of the hole surprisingly was not Los Angeles, but Revere Beach in Revere, MA. When the Hair Metal genre died overnight. The hole receded. As did the hair lines of those Head Bangers.

“These are nothing more or less than shaman con men seeking to bilk society.”

VERY well put.
