Film reviewer @ CHUD.com goes foaming at the mouth over global warming

It never ceases to amaze me how some people go apoplectic when it comes to global warming. I emailed out a press release this morning on today’s DVD release of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth.” CEI Senior Fellow Marlo Lewis offered some point-by-point refutations of some of Gore’s claims in the documentary. Legitimate, science-based critiques. Nothing hateful or ad hominem about it. Yet the site manager of CHUD.com, a movie review site, went all rabid about it, hurling invective and hateful comments at me. You’d think I poisoned his dog or something. Since when do legitimate policy disputes merit that sort of response? I am not a global warming expert, but I would think any future problems created by global warming warrant solutions that do more good than harm. A show of hands for anyone who believes that massive government tax and rationing schemes on energy use will truly help? I didn’t think so. But if you’re in the mood for some hate mail (and phone calls), go say that to Devin Faraci, the man who runs the (aptly named) CHUD.com.
