“The Left’s fixation on climate change is cloaked in scientism, deploying computer models to create the illusion of certainty. Ever more convinced of their role as planetary saviors, radical greens are increasingly intolerant of dissent or any questioning of their policy agenda. They embrace a sort of ‘soft Stalinism,’ driven by a determination to remake society, whether people want it or not—and their draconian views are penetrating the mainstream. ‘Democracy,’ a writer for Foreign Policy suggests, constitutes ‘the planet’s biggest enemy.'” Joel Kotkin, “Climate Stalinism,” City Journal, 10/25/2019.
