That place where polar opposites meet

If you think the notion of human activity affecting the weather is strictly a product of liberalism, think again. True, liberals subscribe to the notion of man-made climate change. At its root, they blame capitalism for climate change, and so they attack capitalism.

On the right, there is a much smaller cadre of individuals who believe government is modifying the weather by geoengeneering. They believe jet contrails are really “chemtrails” where the government is trying to poison us. And so they attack government.

Both are wrong. Humans are incapable of altering the weather and climate in any meaningful way. It is true that if you go far enough to the right or the left, you’ll eventually meet your political counterpart on the dark side of the moon.
