CNN has a Q&A up with Trilby Lundberg, where the Lundberg Survey publisher calls out nanny-state regulators, over-eager environmentalists and alternative fuel mandates and subsidies for contributing to higher gas prices. It’s all very interesting and well-worth a read, but something tells me Lundberg’s final answer decrying the “boogeyman, also known as global warming” is going to make the trouble in River City look like a day at the beach:
I don’t accept it as established fact, nor do I accept that it would be caused by petroleum consumption, nor do I accept that the human species should not affect its environment. So even if it were someday to be shown to have some small effect on the environment, I see no crime. In fact, taking into account the many, many millions of people around the world that envy our way of life, it would seem more humanitarian to wish them the kind of plentiful petroleum products and vehicles … that we enjoy … to lift themselves out of [a] backward, poor way of life
