The banality of evil...

Steven Hayward, another point about Climategate...

...This raises another small but perhaps significant point that I didn't have room to comment on in my Weekly Standard article: How is it possible for a group of smart people to write over 1,000 e-mails over the course of a decade without a single shred of wit or humor in any of them? There isn't the tiniest hint anywhere that any of these guys ever grin. It jives with my experience of environmentalists for 20 years now that they are the single most humorless slice of humanity on the planet....

How is it possible? Imagine a minor Soviet commissar sending some kulaks to the Gulag...
