Can you measure a movement by its followers?

The Church of Chicken Little is hoping the answer is no:

CharlesManson.jpgCrazed cult leader Charles Manson has broken a 20-year silence in a prison interview coinciding with the 40th anniversary of his conviction for the gruesome Sharon Tate murders – to speak out about global warming.

The infamous killer, who started championing environmental causes from behind bars, bemoaned the ‘bad things’ being done to environment in a rambling phone interview from his Californian jail cell.

‘Everyone’s God and if we don’t wake up to that there’s going to be no weather because our polar caps are melting because we’re doing bad things to the atmosphere.

‘If we don’t change that as rapidly as I’m speaking to you now, if we don’t put the green back on the planet and put the trees back that we’ve butchered, if we don’t go to war against the problem…’ he added, trailing off.

Must be a soothing balm for the true believer to know that they’re on the same side as the much respected and scholarly Charles Manson.

Wonder if NASA’s focus on climate change might lead to funding research into studying the effects of a movement that attracts people like him?

I’m thinking not.

Go, Donald!
