Inside the Climate Alarmist Zoo

We wrote yesterday about the fact that the “People’s Climate March” consisted mostly of warmed-over socialists and other obsolete radicals. Reason TV attended the march and produced this excellent video, which shows what the “climate change” movement is all about. A hint: it doesn’t have much to do with climate.

Not much explanation is required, perhaps, but Noah Rothman is spot-on:

There appear to be two strains of protesters who attended the People’s March. Some cling desperately to the ideals of Marx and who repeat rhetoric and slogans which have largely remained unchanged since the Rutherford B. Hayes administration. These folks ironically consider themselves “progressives.” The other strain of protester who spoke with Foster seemed lost, misplaced, left behind in a world which no longer made much sense.

It is a condition as old as time; the aimless in search of personal meaning complement the ranks of a movement which promises personal purpose. The revolution is over, but the tragically committed revolutionaries persist.
