NICE BUT DIM

Author and would-be climate alarmist Phillip Pullman is acclaimed as a "new brand of environmentalist". He gives his views in today's Telegraph. Here are a couple of quotes.

On those preaching the alarmist message - "So, the questions, the stories that the global warming prophets tell us (let's call them that, to distinguish them from the sceptics), take their place right slap-bang in the middle of the prophetical tradition, along with the prophets of the Old Testament". - So it is a religion!

On polar bears - "Now, they're all going to be extinct if there's no ice left, unless they put them all in zoos or round them up and put a fence round them and throw them a seal or two from time to time. But that's no life." - But Phillip, how did they survive for the last few million years then?
