My comment on George's insightful awesomeness:
George is bang on the money. Rich oiks are by far a greater threat to sustainability and climate change than fecund peasants in developing countries. Unfortunately, they have a far higher PR budget and own all of the mainstream media outlets apart from the BBC, which is under constant assault from them, their multitude of proxies and the retarded minority who believe their lies. I can point to the Spectator's recent cover story endorsing the climate change denialist Ian Plimer or Channel 4's airing of the Great Global Warming Swindle or the propaganda war funded by the petrochemical companies.
My pointing this out will make not a blind bit of difference, however, because democracy the world over is victim to their lies. Democracy only works when people vote rationally and hold their elected representatives to account for their actions. That hasn't happened in the UK in my lifetime and I don't see that changing in the near future. Gideon's paradox will make sure of that.
"however massive the dangers posed by climate change, their lack of immediate visibility in daily life means many people will do nothing concrete to tackle it; by the time they are prompted to action it will, by definition, be too late."
George rules .
Please also read what this guy wrote elegantly criticising George's argument. Nice.
