Talk:North American Union
This was a really alarming example of how right-wing conspiracy theories can emerge as entries in a serious encyclopedia.--Cberlet 14:51, 25 November 2007 (EST)
- I have blanked the sections down to the references until I have time to work my way through this, hopefully on Friday. --Bob Burton 04:23, 28 November 2007 (EST)
14 February 2010: Restored blanked material. The following was blind at the top of the article:
- Allegations that there are serious plans to create a North American Union are based on a series of right-wing conspiracy theories that have spread across the United States.
- What follows is the outline of these right-wing conspiracy theories. While many of the underlying reports and documents actually exist, claims that they add up to a planned North American Union remain speculative and unreliable.
Although deemed a "right-wing conspiracy" theory by some, the decision as to whether or not it is is up to the reader and history since this article was written in 2006.
FYI global warming, an accepted "truth", is fast finding its way into the conspiracy theory pantheon. It is unwise to predict the future too hastily, or too soon, particularly since the last record of "global warming" is now stated by "experts" as happening in 1995 -- or at least that was the news this past weekend.--Artificial Intelligence
- I restored the deleted material added by User Chip Berlet with some modifications as well as citations.
- The issue of how the reality of complex climate changes that are underway, which can be observed in small and large ways as with the diminishing polar ice caps and rapid melting of numerous glaciers that took thousands of years to accumulate, has been distorted into a conspiracy theory is a separate issue--and no doubt the changes have many contributing causes, some major and some minor, and many effects some warming and some cooling.
