The other day global warming came up in conversation and my friend laid out the reasons why he was skeptical, why we’re probably witnessing just a normal temperature cycle, how Al Gore exaggerates, etc etc. Afterwards I told him, “Dude, don’t you see? The global warming skeptic used to be the fashionable position of smart people. The wheels have spun and the anti-skeptic is back on top.”
He smiled solemnly, ever aware of the need to stay one step ahead of the vicious hype cycle, agreed global warming skepticism has jumped the shark, and resolved to join the fight to save our planet.
