"Backstory: Global warbling"

Ms. Gorin may list herself as a "standup comic based in Las Vegas" but she could have a great run as a political pundit. Or a forecaster: notice the column's date and her use of "caliphate".

Freud called it displacement. People fixate on the environment when they can't deal with real threats. Combating the climate gives nonhawks a chance to look tough. They can flex their muscle for Mother Nature, take a preemptive strike at an SUV. Forget the Patriot Act, it's Kyoto that'll save you.

That's why in 2004 we got "The Day After Tomorrow" – so we could worry about junk science that may or may not kill us in 1,000 years instead of the people who really are trying to kill us the day after tomorrow.
