I read this the other day. It puts the Man Caused Climate Change Alarmists in their place. As I always have said we should be working on plans to mitigate climate change and not try to control it by controlling man.

"So I don't concern myself with laws or causes anymore", Keaton said. "I don't get worked up about what used to be my passions - emissions, or recycling, or the trashing of the environment. We humans have such a high opinion if ourselves - especially my old brethren in the movement. We think we are gods on earth, that by merely changing our behavior or, more important, changing the behavior of heathen industrialists and capitalists, that we can actually affect the outcome of the planet. We're so unbelievably arrogant and elite, so blind, so stupid. We think we can control the world. It's so tremendously silly I laugh when I think about it. I would be similar to if all the germs on our bartender's head decided to get together to prevent him from farting. It makes no difference what they decide or what they think - he'll still fart like a heifer."
The bartender, who'd been listening, looked offended.
Doomsayer continued, "Such efforts are beyond quixotic - they're comically hopeless. So we take infinitesimal little actions like preventing oil exploration, or recycling our beer cans, or driving hybrid cars that cost twenty five times what a Third World worker makes
in a year, or shaming other people for their desire to live well and prosper."
