A wonderful post from one of our oldest blogging buddies, “Donna Quixote“……
I stumbled across this article posted on the website Grist — a decidedly pro-climate alarmism site. All of the problems that I have ever run across connected with the Chicken Little Syndrome exhibited by these people can be found in this one article. This little story is so poorly written, it would get a massive F in any journalism course.
It’s worth a read just to demonstrate how to evaluate these hysteria-driven articles in one easy lesson. It’s titled “Climate change will ruin Christmas by threatening Christmas trees“ by Sarah Laskow.
It starts off with the usual fear-mongering ominous sounding “It will take six to 10 years, but Christmas is ruined.” Doesn’t this sound remarkably similar to the equally horrifying headlines from a couple of years ago stating that children in the UK will never know what snow is. We all know how that turned…

Christmas bikini industry? I wrote a couple days ago that demonstrating rocks sink is as smart as the global warming movement gets. You just made this same point.
If some of the stuff I read about how we are all going to die or Florida is going to sink were satire, it would be brilliant.
Sadly, these people are 100% serious.
Thanks, James, but all credit goes to DQ (“Donna Quixote”).
She doesn’t do much writing of her own over at her place, but this shows she CAN, when she wants to.
And I agree: this stuff aspires to be satire.
I only wish it were…
She can definitely write, it was a great post.
There’s a part of me that actually feels badly for the folks that have been duped into being followers of AGW.
I would feel bad for them too if they weren’t willfully ignorant.
Yeah….I know. Chalk it up to the Christmas season, but I just get the feeling that some of these folks are so devoid of a MEANINGFUL, TRUTHFUL purpose in their lives. It makes them easier prey for those who would use them. True…you must ALLOW yourself to be used, but hey…I’m old….it’s Christmas….and the song “Christmas Time is Here” from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is playing on the radio……
Great suggestion, Pgh.
Think I’ll go home tonight and watch “A Charlie Brown Christmas” with the family.
It never fails to lift my spirits…
It’s like “The Wizard of Oz”….both of the movies stand the test of time, and I’ll watch them whenever possible….
Come to think of it, my favorite line from ‘Oz’ could’ve been written for many on the Left:
“…Well, some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don’t they?…”
Reblogged this on Defy The Narrative.
I agree with you. These people have nothing in their lives that is meaningful and that’s so sad. I don’t get how they can live this way. We need to keep on our mission!!!!!!!! Not always easy.
The road to truth is usually the hardest one to take, Di.
