Calvin and Hobbes explain why Climate Change alarmists are almost invariably rabid about it

From the strip first published on 7/7/1995:

Enmity sells

From a Calvin and Hobbes search engine:

Script
I’m writing a fund-raising letter. The secret to getting donations is to depict everyone who disagrees with you as the enemy. Then you explain how they’re systematically working to destroy everything you hold dear. It’s a war of values! Rational discussion is hopeless! Compromise is unthinkable! Our only hope is well-funded antagonism, so we need your money to keep up the fight! How cynically unconstructive. Enmity sells.

  1. Why not cite the Calvin & Hobbes where Calvin directly asks his mom about climate change from July 23rd 1987? He asks her about melting polar ice caps and accuses her of not caring becauae she will be dead by the time it matters. She retorts he wants a car ride for any distance over 2 blocks and he retorts nobody told him about climate change. That strip perfectly captures the state of climate change information and lack of global reaction much better than your long reach posted here.

    1. Doom – I am not sure what your comment has to do with my OP. Being rabid about something is not correlated with the reality of that something.
