"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."
- Buckminster Fuller (h/t Suzy Waldman)

The professional climate inactivist movement -- as exemplified by the Heartland Institute, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, Rush Limbaugh, John Theon, etc. etc. etc. -- is an "entertainment industry"? I think that's giving the inactivist movement too much credit.

Because it's primarily a noise industry.

Or, to put it more diplomatically, it's a weird sort of advertisement industry which uses a cocktail of techniques culled from mainstream advertisers, online Viagra peddlers, and Alex Jones.
