  •  This is funnier than you think.... (4+ / 0-)

    Last year I read an op-ed in our local paper from a man named Robert H. Nelson of the Independent Institute. He claimed that environmentalism is a religion in the US and therefore should not be taught in public schools. Seriously.   I wrote to him and not only got into a big back and forth with him over environmentalism being SCIENCE not RELIGION, but also with his colleague, David Theroux.  Pace University even printed Nelson's nonsense, so I wrote to Robert Kennedy Jr. about it. I also sent Nelson's article to Rick Perlsteind of Rolling Stone, who had been writing about this topic and he called it "column worthy" but never wrote one.

    Look these people and their Independent Institute up. It'll give you a good scare.
