Apparently he no longer believes that “before this century is over billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable.” But who with more than half a brain ever did believe the second half of that? (The first half of course is obviously true unless some medical miracle gives us all 100+ year lifespans.)
It infuriates me that the media always anoint those with the most extreme and outlandish views as the “leading” proponents of any movement. The point seems to be just so that when they eventually are seen to be ridiculous or back off from their position then others can chime in with “I told you so” and “see! The whole thing was ridiculous”.
