The New Holocaust Deniers


At PJ Media, Robert Zubrin writes about his book tour:
Indeed, the entire environmentalist movement consists of holocaust deniers, who continue to refuse to look at or admit the existence of the carnage they have created and continue to perpetuate worldwide. 
His new book is Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists, and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism.

There is a bizarre, self-loathing current in the environmental movement and the political left in general.  The Puritans had nothing on these guys.  I'm a Calvinist that believes in the radical depravity of man but, compared to these knuckleheads, I'm a squishy Pollyanna about humanity.  I think it was C.S. Lewis that was credited with saying the problem with an atheist is not that he believes in nothing, but rather that you can get him to believe in anything.

Maybe, maybe not.  But it does look like you can get a lot of people to hate the whole human race in the abstract, and to support things that provably cause a lot of death and suffering.
