Climategate news-3

James Lovelock in una intervista al Guardian:

We need a more authoritative world. We’ve become a sort of cheeky, egalitarian world where everyone can have their say. It’s all very well, but there are certain circumstances – a war is a typical example – where you can’t do that. You’ve got to have a few people with authority who you trust who are running it. And they should be very accountable too, of course.

But it can’t happen in a modern democracy. This is one of the problems. What’s the alternative to democracy? There isn’t one. But even the best democracies agree that when a major war approaches, democracy must be put on hold for the time being. I have a feeling that climate change may be an issue as severe as a war. It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while.

Il solito equivalente morale della guerra con cui varie sinistre del secolo scorso e di quello attuale portano avanti il loro particolare fascismo (leggetevi il libro di cui al link !). Non si può piu` nemmeno dire criptofascismo, essendo dichiarato :D ...

(Curioso peraltro, perchè su molte altre cose nella stessa intervista il nostro è sensato. Cognitive dissonance o lunacy ?)
