Global Informing

Among the many reasons why I don't like the fetish of global warming is the insistence that its proponents make about acknowledging current figures in the movement: those pseudo-heroes whose self-promotion is usually at the foundation of the praise and public recognition.

However, I do mind the maniacal fixation on the subject regardless of its truth or fiction. It leads to poor and unjust decisions to recognize the unworthy and ignore the venerable. Kinda like this:
