Global Warming Leading Cause of Metrosexuality?

National Ledger columnist Daniel Clark writes that the global warming debate has led to the emasculation of modern American society. He says it all began when Al Gore asked for advice from a feminist author on how to be more of an "alpha male." Rather than teach him how to be masculine, strong and charismatic, "her solution was to dress him in earth tones, as if obsessing over his wardrobe was any way to attain guydom." The end was nigh...

Images of global destruction being more powerful than images of normalcy and stability, Gore and friends are bound to win the competition for people's emotions. Hence, they are now deterring any analysis of the issue, by calling skeptics "global warming deniers," a not very subtle comparison to neo-Nazis. If we succumb to this intimidation like a bunch of namby-pamby rice cake eaters, the debate will be lost for good.

Thus, the global warming movement seeks to repress guyhood in order to perpetuate itself. If a guy is shown a picture of a sad-looking polar bear adrift on an ice floe, his first thought will be something like, "I've heard that bear steaks are tough, but maybe if you marinated them in beer, they'd turn out all right." At that point, the alarmists' emotional ploy is foiled. In a world without guy stuff, however, his vacant mind may be invaded by irrationalities like, "Who will take care of the polar bears' children?"
