Environmentalists are up to their old tricks again, this time trying to block a wind farm south of Corpus Christi, Texas.
Wind farms aren’t the most efficient things out there, but the power they generate does not produce greenhouse gases. Neither did nuclear power. But environmentalists, not willing to bend on their rigid aesthetic, are trying to block this one, as they did with nuclear power (and rubbish incineration for power generation, if memory serves me correctly.)
Today liberals are trying to portray themselves as "rational" and "scientific." For those of us who survived the 1960’s and 1970’s, this has always been a stretch because of past performance. They haven’t changed. Theists are not the major roadblock to a scientific world. Environmentalists are. They are the Achilles’ Heel of the left in this regard. It’s too bad that Evangelical Christianity hasn’t quite figured out how to use this to maximum advantage.
