Information to soothe environmental hysterics

UPDATE (9/25/2007, 2305 hrs) - I was informed by a commenter that my link to the PDF file is dead. After confirming that it was indeed dead, I, your humble blogger, searched the Web and found a new link. The paper is called Hysteria's History by Amy Kaleita, Ph.D.

Via FrontPageMagazine, I came across a very easy-to-read essay (PDF file) that addresses the hysterical claims made by the enviro-fascist wackos out there. The file says it's 30 pages, but don't let that scare you. A lot of it is endnotes and big blank spaces. Here is a passage from the essay to get you started:
In the media, global warming causes everything. A brief perusal of stories from the last several years reveals that warming has been blamed for a huge array of problems, including increased teenage drinking, stray cats, poison ivy, and sharks. More seriously, global warming has also been blamed for widespread malnutrition and outbreaks of disease, Hurricane Katrina, and the crisis in Darfur.
Boy, the Church of Global Warming is looking more and more like a bunch of medieval peasants.

Good Day to You, Sir

C'mon Chanman - the temp warms up and teens find themselves more parched than ever before and consequently have to drink more beer. Gosh, anybody with any common sense knows this!

Spoken, Mr. Chanman, as only a history teacher could!

The link is dead, but the excerpt sounds intriguing, so I must find it. You have a wonderful blog, sir.
