Aren't global warming Cassandras (like, say, Al Gore) just a little bit creepy in a sort of narcissistic way?
I am not talking about suburban joggers in ball caps who dutifully separate their garbage. Nothing wrong with that, especially if it gives your life meaning.
I am talking about the true believers. I will use Al Gore as an example, but he is certainly not the only one, just a visible one.
Al Gore, it seems, believes that humanity is stupid and or evil, and a kind of viral blight upon the planet (except for HIM, of course, who is smarter and more enlightened).
Plus, because they are so stupid and or evil they must be controlled and regulated by government (provided, of course, that government positions are occupied by people like HIM).
If you saw that attitude any place else, you might wonder about whom you were dealing with. You would at least roll your eyeballs.
So why aren’t people like Al Gore regarded as creepazoids?
