The Church of Global Warming Is Dead

Who says your vote doesn’t count for anything?

Stephens: The Great Global Warming Fizzle – WSJ.com.

As with religion, it is presided over by a caste of spectacularly unattractive people pretending to an obscure form of knowledge that promises to make the seas retreat and the winds abate. As with religion, it comes with an elaborate list of virtues, vices and indulgences. As with religion, its claims are often non-falsifiable, hence the convenience of the term “climate change” when thermometers don’t oblige the expected trend lines. As with religion, it is harsh toward skeptics, heretics and other “deniers.” And as with religion, it is susceptible to the earthly temptations of money, power, politics, arrogance and deceit.

Robert Fulford: Too much sensitivity doomed the Shafia girls | Full Comment | National Post.

Day after day we absorb the details of a heart-stopping story about children who asked for help and badly needed help, yet could not be helped. The Shafia murder trial in Kingston, Ont., has become a drama about the frustration of teachers, social workers and police officers who glimpsed a family crisis and found themselves helpless to do their jobs.

As Christie Blatchford has eloquently reported on this site, the authorities in Montreal were in touch with the family well before the alleged murders. There was obvious trouble but it was a difficult file. Girls might speak freely about their wretched lives when talking to a social worker, then clam up in the presence of their parents. The parents did not welcome outside intervention. Everything was fine, they said. So the official helpers silently closed their files and walked away.
