Crichton’s View

Pelosi China As the Speaker of the House is in China drumming up concern about global warming -- and asserting that "Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory ... of how we are taking responsibility" -- this video of Michael Crichton (some profanity in comments) speaking on global warming is a breath of fresh air (hat tip to one of our Pointificators, Mike Snow).

P. S. Anyone else concerned about the possibility of Big Brother coming into our homes to determine if we're "green" enough? Of children being taught in schools to "tattle" on their environmentally wasteful parents?

Jonah Goldberg has a short piece in the new "National Review" on that very subject ("The Littlest Totalitarian," p. 8). If it becomes available online, I'll post a link.

Are children being taught to tattle at all? If I recall in some schools they are encouraged to report each other cheating aren't they?


It might be a bit of a tangent but in April's "Imprimis" Mark Steyn reports that in the UK teams of government nutritionists are doing "health audits" of citizens refrigerators. They have the kind of health care system that our government wants to put in place here. So, if the gov't is paying for your health care they might want to make sure you're eating right. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to imagine something similar for checking how "green" we are.
So, yes, I am concerned. Not worried but concerned. Don't know if the American people would allow such a thing but I wouldn't want to totally count on that these days either!
