In his 1933 inaugural address, Franklin D. Roosevelt said "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself."
I am reading Michael Crichton‘s "State of Fear," a well-written thriller. The plot involves radical environmentalists wreaking havoc on the world. Especially when the environment’s concerned, I feel that it’s exceedingly easy to create frenzies (and raise funds). I have been curious on some of the thinking on the issue.
That’s when I came on to this speech given by Crichton. He’s a bright guy and a good writer. It’s interesting.
