Charlton Heston on Global Warming

You can listen to him here. The discussion is from Michael Crichton's book, "State of Fear."

Well, Heston was a nice guy and all, and I'm a 2nd Amendment type, but, listened to carefully, that's insane.

I guess that I don't find the discussion from Crichton's book insane. Possibly you can explain why you think that it is wrong, let alone insane.

Well, good grief. If all the nuclear bombs go off, and the earth is a radioactive oven for 100,000 years, all is well! The earth itself survives! And no ozone--well, it aids evolution! Not that the whole process would ever bring us back again, the only organism that's had a hint of something other than tooth and claw, but not to worry, the earth survives! Until the sun goes red giant, anyways...what me worry.

Put another way, most people couldn't contemplate 100,000 years of a radioactive oven, and the end of the human race, with such equanimity as Heston seems to do.
