How to Recognize Latent Conservative Tendencies

Okay…this is going to be really tough. I’ve come to be aware that some of you who have been reading my column have suspected that I occasionally reveal subtle conservative tendencies… maybe just a careless word slip, like referring to global warming as a “hoax”, to green energy as a “scam”, or to carbon dioxide as “plant food”. Occasionally when I catch sight of fellow faculty members whispering when they don’t think I’m looking, I worry that they may have noticed this as well. As you might imagine, living with all of this anxiety has been a quite an emotional burden.
Which raises an important question that some of us, and perhaps even you, have struggled very hard to answer about ourselves. Was I born this way?
Like, for example, did you become aware of an early euphoric carbon dioxide emission rush while sitting next to a cozy bonfire or home fireplace on a cool evening? Was it during a time in childhood when you outran an opponent, tagged them “out” of the game, and guiltlessly realized you enjoyed beating them in competition? Maybe it occurred much later in life when you began worry more about the next Ice Age than global warming, and more about drowning in rising debt than about polar bears drowning in rising oceans.
