NIHILISTS SLAMMED

A.A. Gill has had it up to here with moany greensters:

Let me tell you, you Peruvian-hatted puritan apostles of grassy nihilism, the single hottest problem facing the planet is not global warming, but the viciously smug fundamentalist prohibitionists of the green movement. Those wholemealy-mouthed ecologists, who devoutly wish to reduce everyone else’s existence to a self-righteous nose-drip probity that never moves more than four miles from the communal yurt, never eats anything that hasn’t been grown in the communal dung and never thinks anything that isn’t collectively miserabilist, are going to destroy life as we know it faster than an equator of traffic jams, a continent of unlagged lofts and a squadron of circling jumbos.

Gill is hitting harder than Gilchrist! He continues:

In the UK, we buy 296m books a year and read fewer than a fifth of them. Paper publishing is a bigger polluter and waster of resources than all the air miles flown. Every book could be written once and put on the internet. But the eco-sermonisers never mention any of that. They never go for books, because they all fancy themselves as the next Lovelock or a bit of a Rousseau. They all want to write half a dozen.

(Via murph)

UPDATE. Books aren’t the only problem:

Computers and other IT equipment have been blamed for causing as much global warming as the airline industry.

UPDATE II. An interesting piece:

Some people who call themselves scientists want science to become a substitute for religion, or at least function more like a religion.

UPDATE III. With good reason, Hanyu has faith in humans.
