QUOTE OF THE DAY: Science-free environmentalism

"The environmentalist movement is ... stealing the terminology of science
to provide cover for an irrational, unscientific fear of industry and
technology. And so while they loudly claim to be the tribunes of science,
they actually play to and rely on the public’s ignorance of science.
"That is how we ended up living in a world of carbon-free sugar, chemical-
free H2O, and science-free environmentalism."

- Robert Tracinscki, “Carbon-Free Sugar, Science-Free Environmentalism,” THE TRACINSKI LETTER
