Armageddon Chic

Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Matthew 15:14

John Tierney has a great article on global warming and availability cascades. What’s that?

The availability cascade is a self-perpetuating process: the more attention a danger gets, the more worried people become, leading to more news coverage and more fear.

Maybe this is just Armageddon chic.
