More from Steyn on Global Warming

Mark Steyn follows up on his recent column on global warming with a response to Ellen Goodman of the Boston Globe, who this week compared those who question global warming to Holocaust deniers.

I don't know where I heard it, but this seems like good advice: When talking to global warming kooks, ask them what caused the ice to melt from the first ice age. They will say solar flares or something like that. Then ask them why it is not solar flares this time.

In the appendix of Michael Crichton's excellent novel (with numerous scientific footnotes), "State of Fear," he has an awesome essay on something else that scientist's were in "consensus" about.

It turns out that many upstanding scientists, politicians, philanthropists, business leaders, etc. were behind eugenics, the belief that certain people should be kept from breeding in order produce a smarter race of people. Hitler took this idea and ran with it.
