Bali Rants

In support of our Science Rant Contest, Eli brings you Bali Rants:

First up from Washington Monthly, Yvonne, come on down Yvonne

"And then we come to the Bali conference. When, years from now, you have to look into the eyes of your impoverished grandchild, standing there in soiled, tattered clothes, and try to explain to him why he must be consigned to utter destitution, mention to him the name of "Bali" second only to Kyoto in the annals of hackneyed, globalist socialistic scams. Tell him that Mr. Ban Ki Moon and Al Snore sold your country down the river, ripped up our capitalist traditions and replaced them with gutter hippie sham morality. It's high time we stopped letting these environmentalists push us around!"
To be continued. . .

C'mon wabbit, we want to know what *you* think about Bali.

Or, of course, tell him the truth that his parents and grandparents used the atmosphere as their sewer.

And hand him a copy of Garret Hardin's The Tragedy of the Commons.

I'm not sure that the following qualifies, although it occasionally mentions the word "science", but it is surely a rant, via V. Monckton:

A bit pretentious and wordy, sort of thing you expect from a prep school dandy. Lacks the pith and stick of a real rant that leaves you fearing for your life if you remain in the room with this crazy man.
