WASHINGTON, D.C. – Perhaps you’ve noticed that Democrats and their co-workers in the media are acting especially hysterical lately about “man-made climate change.”

In just the past few days, there’ve been news stories warning that climate change could destroy America’s national landmarks, imperil our national security, lead to more wildfires, and even disrupt corn and rice production. (“Cereal lovers of the world may want to start stocking up now,” warns Time.com.)

On Wednesday, a group of leading Democrats gathered outside a Senate office building to highlight the need for immediate legislative action. California Sen. Barbara Boxer even called for an end to climate change “denial,” a deliberate word choice to subtly link climate-change skeptics to Holocaust deniers.

The environmentalists and their media groupies have obviously decided to crank up the volume of their alarmism to “11,” but why now?
