Alexander Cockburn of CounterPunch says global warming is a plot by capitalists to bring back nuclear power. Louis Proyect says that’s ludicrous, saying he sounds like 9/11 conspiracists.
This involves major leaps of the imagination. Just as I always found it difficult to picture CIA agents agreeing to planes (or cruise missiles) being flown into the WTC or the Pentagon, I can’t quite get my mind around the idea that scientists are involved in a huge con job.
Exactly.If THEY (in capital letters, with the smell of sulfur and sounds of cackling laughter) were so powerful as to fiendishly arrange a devious plan requiring many years and thousands of scientists in order to foist nuclear power on us, then they’d be powerful enough to just go ahead and do it, eh?
These inane conspiracy theories waste so much time and divert so much energy away from the real work that needs to be done that maybe, oh I get it now, THEY deliberately started the conspiracy theories about themselves so as to confuse, demoralize, and distract the opposition. The fiends.
But WAIT!! What if both conspiracies were part of an EVEN GREATER conspiracy??? The Reichstag Fire of 9/11 being used as rationale for a Police State and the creation of “nuclear facilities” in urban areas (like the WTC site!!) which will then be used for Mind Control Manipulations and Genetic Manipulations on urban populations! But we will Expose their EVIL PLANS, no matter how much they use Logic against us!!!
(Do I have the excessive use of capitalization, overuse of question and exclamation marks, plus run-on sentences and ranty tone done in the proper Only I Know The Truth style?)
Really folks, there’s so much craziness out there it hardly seems necessary to invent conspiracies.
