Honesty from the Environmentalists?
Or just engaging in a little Mao-style self-criticism
over tactics?"We keep crying wolf and we keep overstating the doomsday scenario," said Ong Keng Yong, the Secretary General of the Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean).
"It will not serve the cause of protecting the environment."
I remember years ago, an environmental reporter on an NPR show made a rather unintentionally telling observation. He said that it was tough being an environmental reporter because the editors' response to a pitch was "Another "end of the world" story? We just did that last week!"
Of course, one would think that the fact that the world has not ended would tell them that they're just blowing smoke.
