Well thank you very much for the warm welcome. I am truly honored to be here!

I think you nailed the problem. Too many people insist that they have the solution for whatever disaster or emergency there may be -- and that we all need to listen blindly and follow their lead. They may be left-leaning or right-leaning. It doesn't matter. What matters is that we retain our ability to think independently and critically, questioning all their suppositions and claims.

Just because a religious or political leader asserts that [insert behavior here] is going to lead us all to ruin, either economically, ecologically, in the eyes of God, etc. does not make it so. I look at certain leaders in the environmental movement (not naming names just yet) and certain religious or spiritual leaders (also not naming names) in the same way. Those who make the claim that we're all doomed -- for whatever underlying reason -- are either well-intentioned but misguided, or deliberately misleading. Either way, I believe the right thing to do is stand in opposition to such statements and fight fear with facts.

I look forward to a lively discussion with the intelligent audience on this forum!
