Happy Philosophy Summer.

Saving the planet sounds like a nice smiley-face concept. Who could object to that? Ecology went off the rails years ago, when it embraced socialism and pantheism as a philosophical base. More people are becoming aware that today’s eco-policies may not be saving anything and just costing everyone a lot of money for nothing. Steve Milloy (www.junkscience.com) is author of “Green Hell,” which demonstrates where going green is taking the culture and the economy down a bad road.

The new atheists like to claim that logic and reason from the Enlightenment rescued western civilization from the Dark Ages and religious superstition, making modern science possible. Nice try but it’s all fiction. Christianity brought Greek thinking, logic, and philosophy into the West centuries before the Enlightenment and set the stage for modern science as we know it. Professor Jay Budziszewski is the philosopher of the week at the University of Texas, Austin from where he joins Steel on Steel to discuss “The Line Through the Heart.”

John’s boralogue examines the philosophical roots behind cap and trade as well as the Cloward-Piven strategy for wrecking an economy to be able to establish socialism.
