Since man developed a bit of a brain the clever ones have dominated the rest of us by fear. Look back at history and you go through religion, the French, Germans, and the cold war to name but a few. As there's no big issues between any of the major powers, have the government concocted global warming as the latest scare to keep us in our place and control what we do? You can't do this or that because you will make the ice caps melt, and to prove it they fly off to Greenland to measure the ice! Scientist will back them as they will get loverly grants to prove them right. I know the wold's warming up, but it's gone through lots of changes, couldn't this just be another one? Or am I just cynical of the ruling classes.
