Why the MSM Is Stupid About AGW | Somewhat Reasonable
[Joe Bast] 99% of reporters who cover environment and global warming are environmentalists – it really is their religion. They aren’t going to some day just “change their mind” about global warming. Most will die or retire still being true believers.

We are the “Davids,” speaking collectively now for all those in the religious community who have joined this fight, facing down Goliath. The big oil companies will fight to the death to keep their big oil subsidies. Coal industry executives have lots of money and lobbyists to kill carbon standards on existing power plants. But we have spiritual resources at our disposal, and lots of potential troops. I would say to my co-religionists, “Do what is right and be not afraid.”
