A prophet has honor, save in his own house.
Proceed under a false premise and you will reach a wrong conclusion. Your consensus doesn't matter. Last time we checked, Vault-Co was outnumbered several hundred million to one. Remember to respect the fringe nuts like Robert Felix at Ice Age Now, because these blathering marginals turned out to be extraordinary people of remarkable genius in hindsight.
The majority is always wrong. Even when they are right, they are only right for the wrong reasons. Guarantee you they will not be able to outline the train of reasoning by which they arrived at the correct conclusion. The rest of the time they're just all wrong, period.
All that "carbon credit" stuff is full blown schizophrenia expressed on a mass scale involving countless yammering programmable morons numbering in the billions. Repeat it enough on the televitz and you can honestly make the majority do, say or believe damn near anything. They really are like cattle in their malleability and sometimes it's not difficult to understand why the elite hold them in the contempt they do. The global warming cult was all about appealing to human vanity on a number of levels at once. It worked. If it hadn't been for reality they could have sold that gibberish to the whole of mankind.
