Tablet: Editorial, 10 March 2007 "Ethics of Global Warming" for those who get the print edition (I don't.) Article 9460 for online subscribers (I'm not.)
I was alerted to this fearful consequence of political incorrectness by an email I received with the text of a letter sent to the editor of Junkscience.com.
Dear JunkScience.com,More on global warming from JunkScience.com - "all the junk that's fit to debunk."
You may be interested to know that the Tablet, an "international Catholic weekly" of liberal bent, has declared that presuming against man-made global warming in favour of development is "gravely sinful", and that denial of global warming is "morally wrong"! And this is from a journal which regularly resists papal infallibility and attacks the Church for its condemnations of moral evils!
Now I must compose an article setting out the arguments in favour of gradualism and proportionalism for global warming deniers. In a given life situation, global warming denial may be the only realistic option for a person trapped in the cycle of hypothesis, evidence, testing, peer review and re-evaluation. In their circumstances, surely, global warming denial can be seen as a step on the way to a fuller understanding of the environment?
