We can choose to give environmentalists even more power to control or propitiate The Earth. We might even try to build more flood control or irrigation systems. But in either case the outcome is not guaranteed.

Nothng is guaranteed.  But we do have thousands of years of experience indicating that dams, reservoirs, and careful planning can drastically reduce or in many cases eliminate the traditional threats of flooding and drought.

Which is why, given a choice, I’d much rather move in that direction rather than kneel before the great Green altar of the God Smelt in sacrifice of what we already know that usually works.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
