Less light

Liberty (08941408);Jun2009, Vol. 23 Issue 5, p16
The author considers the debate on climate change. He says that the substantive issues are not addressed to, criticizing the tactics of environmental alarmists, like the urging of the World Wildlife Fund to switch off outdoor lighting on March 28, 2009. He believes that there may be some connection between human activity and climate change that needs to be answered. He argues that there is a herd mentality regarding climate change alarm due to advantages that could accrue to proponents, such as politicians, corporate executives and ordinary citizens.
