The Environmentalist Fires

The Environmentalist Fires
By John Berlau

Last week, CNN delayed for a few hours the scheduled Tuesday night broadcast debut of its much-hyped documentary series "Planet in Peril" due to live coverage of the tragic wildfires that have displaced more than 500,000 people in Southern California. But that didn't keep CNN "golden boy" reporter Anderson Cooper from using the tragedy to tout the program he starred in as much as he could.

Cooper constantly claimed during the week that the fires provided further confirmation of the documentary's prediction of an eco-catastrophe. Cooper said that higher temperature due to global warming may have been a factor. It was a "timely documentary," Cooper said last Tuesday on CNN's "Larry King Live", because "California certainly seems to be in peril."
But ironically, much of the reason California is in peril is due not to climate change, but to the very environmental policies championed by Cooper's documentary and our new Nobel laureate, Al Gore.

The persons responsible for setting those fires should be given the death penalty if convicted. Over 1800 homes destroyed, one million people evacuated, countless billions in damage. This is terrorism!

I've said many times before that Al Gore suffered a nervous breakdown after the 2000 election and never fully recovered. He's become Ahab. And "Global Warming'' is the White Whale. J"Mac.
