Warming the earth?
I suppose one could claim that my home heating system is warming the earth, or that when I smoke a cigar I am warming the earth.
But the earth knows.
Even a loon town in the NE area several years ago banned their outdoor
Christmas lights for the same reason.
Go figure. But H. L. Mencken (1880 1956), journalist magazine editor once said:
"[The news media] is a device for making the ignorant more ignorant and the crazy crazier". He went on to say:
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary".
