Geek: You Know What We Need? More Lying!

Yes, it's a mystery why ecolunacy is losing traction.

Actually, in one respect it does remind me of Churchill's line about people who stumble over the truth, but pick themselves up and carry on. Yes, the fact ecoloons keep jetting round the world warning of the dangers of flying would tend to undermine their credibility, but no, the answer is not for science to become even more cult-like.

Consider this though: when people point out that a disproportionate number of ecofreaks tend to live in small palaces, that's an actual fact. Meanwhile, the ecofreaks try and link sceptics to holocaust deniers and ponder how they can best bamboozle the public into accepting their wacky ideas. Just who's doing the science here?
