I was checking out the website of self-proclaimed global warming activist Laurie David today, when I noticed a quote in the header of the site:
"We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive."
"Wow" I thought. Did Albert Einstein really forsee some catastrophic fate for our very existence if we were to not buy into the theory of global warming? I’d heard/seen that quote somewhere before, and I didn’t recall anything about global warming in its context. Could it be that such an anchor statement was being used to mislead people into thinking that Albert Einstein supported the theory of Global Warming? I had to look up the context of this statement. This is what I found:
"The splitting of the atom has changed everything except the way we think. Thus we drift toward unparalleled catastrophe. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive."
This statement, in fact, has no application to Global Warming, other than to claim that we who do not believe the global warming theory are stuck in some age-old paradigm that will doom us all.
