Dark Ball of Ice

Of propagandist doomsayers:

“Isn't it sad how some people's grasp on their lives is so precarious that they'll embrace any preposterous delusion rather than face an occasional bleak truth?”
– Calvin and Hobbes

This sounds terribly reasonable, until you know the context.  Calvin thought the September weather was leading to the earth becoming a dark and lifeless ball of ice.  His father told him that it's colder because the hemisphere is titled away from the sun.  PHHHTTT.   It is much more fun to believe the lifeless ball of ice theory, even if the consequences would be very dire if it were true.
