Think we’ve had too much Al Gore worship in this blog lately? Here’s an article for you, from a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute:
“The Fate of the Earth in the Balance: The Metaphysics of Climate Change”

Gore derives our environmental problems from deeper metaphysical and psychosocial currents, a path that will foreclose a number of productive policy approaches to the problem of climate change.
If you really want to delve into those deeper metaphysical and psychosocial currents, go swimming here.
