Boy, the green movement is just racking up the valuable allies these days, isn't it? Apparently cult leader/murderer/#1 Beatles fan Charles Manson has incorporated global warming into his particular brand of crazy, telling Spanish Vanity Fair: "Everyone's God and if we don't wake up to that there's going to be no weather because our polar caps are melting because we're doing bad things to the atmosphere… The automobiles and fossil fuels are destroying the atmosphere and we won't have air to breathe.” If you are, say, the Daily Fail, this is an excuse to get sarcasmic about the merits of climate change. Thanks, jerk.

Two thoughts on this:

1) Okay, that is … that is not really what's happening. I mean, the "automobiles and fossil fuels destroying the atmosphere" part, yes, A+ on that. But the part about how there will be no weather if we don't recognize we're all God is maybe not part of the enviro canon.
