The UN and “single scary causes”: A long but illuminating read

From time to time, I have commented on the remarkable similarities between the UN generated fear of CO2 and the UN generated “centrality” of the so-called Israeli-Arab (or if you prefer, the Israel-Palestinian) conflict.

Many a truth is sung in jest
