Sellers of Darkness

Victor Davis Hanson:

these influential prophets of doom do not have lives remotely similar to the lesser folk they lecture. From time to time, Al Gore hops on a private jet — and purchases “carbon offsets” as penances for the privilege. His mansion not long ago consumed more energy in a month than the average American home does in a year. Friedman lives on a sprawling estate reminiscent of the grandees of the 18th-century English countryside.

There has always been a market for doom. Recently, we had the Y2K scare, soon we'll get 2012 and of course the global warming canard is ongoing. I don't understand why so many people accept this gloomy nonsense.
