The Climate Change scare machine

JoNova has a good post outlining, and partly accounting for what she calls the Climate Change Scare Machine. It's a bit harsh in some areas, such as in questioning James Hanson's income, but the chart really says it all, and could easily apply to any number of scares.. AKA Adam Curtis' Power of Nightmares

Hey Jase! Totally! But I'm amazed at how few people seem to consider this obvious flow.. especially those advocating for taxation to address the climate change hypothesis. They seem to be saying that "the science is settled" but let's not talk about that elephant in the room, getting waged by its own tail.
