Climate Scientist Compares CO2 Hysteria to Terrorist Hysteria
The Corbett Report
Tuesday, March 4, 2008
Dr. Tim Ball, the Chairman of the National Resources Stewardship Project and an environmental consultant who has authored numerous scientific publications in the field of climate science joined The Corbett Report recently to discuss the B.C. government's recent move to impose a carbon tax on the province, among other issues. Carbon taxes, he asserts, are "another grab for money; politicians are always looking for ways to get more funding."
"The hysteria over manmade global warming is akin to the hysteria over the terrorist scare: a convenient excuse to raise funds and take basic liberties from citizens. "In the U.S. and in fact the Western world, they're using terrorism and [the need for] Homeland Security as a way of taking away people's individual rights."
