That is where they are completely wrong. Humans can always make any situation worse. Just this winter people have been freezing to death in their flats in Ireland because of these feel good morons. The price of energy in Ireland required to stay alive in winter time, has risen dramatically because of inefficient green policies. These feel good greenies could be responsible for the deaths of millions if we enter the next Ice Age with retarded energy production capabilities.
Both of you are correct. They are statists. They see more government as always more beneficial if they get to tell the government what to do. They have generally been employed by the State all of their lives, and see themselves as the agents of the State, the “experts” who are much better at telling everyone else how to live.
They actually believe this.
