Only a Return to Hunting and Gathering Can Stop Global Warming

It turns out that driving dorky Piouses and using toxic curlicue light bulbs won't be enough to save the polar bears from the imaginary menace of global warming. From The Economist:

Imagine a small group of farmers tending a rice paddy some 5,000 years ago in eastern Asia or sowing seeds in a freshly cleared forest in Europe a couple of thousand years before that. It is here, a small group of scientists would have you believe, that humanity launched climate change. Long before the Industrial Revolution — indeed, long before a worldwide revolution in intensive farming, the results of which kept humanity alive — people caused unnatural exhalations of greenhouse gases that had an impact on the world's climate. …although the size of the effect has increased markedly since the industrial revolution, it looks as if humanity has been interfering with the climate since the dawn of civilization.

Thank you, Economist, for confirming that what moonbats object to is civilization. There is still zero evidence that human activity has ever influenced global temperatures, as if warmer weather would somehow be a problem on a planet that tends to be too cold.

An ancient eco-criminal.
