Did you ever read something that just, well, made you question everything?

While waking up this morning, I was browsing some right-wing blogs via the Daou Report on Salon. I find it best to read some of these things when I'm not fully awake. One of the hot topics, apparently, is global climate change. Really, you say, after the Liar in Chief mentioned it in his State of the Union address, people who have previously doubted the mountain of scientific data telling us that human activity affects the environment are changing their minds? Or perhaps it's that they're aghast, as any thinking person should be, that the White House has been actively pressuring scientists to not release that data?

(I think you know where I'm going with this...)

Of course not. They're digging in their heels even harder, and in the process, are just going wacko. Yes, I'm comfortable using that word for people who write things like this:

"Paper recycling is probably responsible for a lot of CO2 remaining in the air and not being removed."

You see, you environmentalist activist nutjobs - if (and I mean if!) human activity is causing global climate change, it's because of your crazy recycling. Not the burning of coal. Not the burning of gasoline and oil. No! You, who are trying to "save" the earth, are killing it!

Quick - everyone jump in your Hummers and go to the paper recycling plants and burn them down - they're destroying the earth. That's the only way we can save ourselves.

Didn't St. Reagan once say trees caused pollution?

Nothing to see here, move along.
