    As any global warming ‘skeptic’ will tell you, scaremongering is a very very bad thing to do. Unless, well, it’s a ‘skeptic’ who’s doing it. Then it’s OK. [cached]

    [Steve] Milloy’s book, Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Ruin your life and What You Can Do to Stop Them, describes members of the green movement as communists who are creating and exaggerating environmental problems in order to scare the public into allowing the government to take control of and regulate all aspects of Americans’ lives. […]

    Milloy even goes as far as to defend his reliance on scare tactics over factual data. He said he spent the last 13 years trying to expose the “intellectual bankruptcy” of environmentalists on his website JunkScience.com, but after finding that it is “almost always easier to scare the public,” he decided to change his methods for Green Hell.
