George Will doesn’t think much of his global warming critics.

Will recently sat down with The Daily Caller for an extensive interview about politics, culture and his new book, “A Nice Little Place on the North Side: Wrigley Field at One Hundred.” TheDC will be featuring segments from the interview over the next several weeks.

“Global warming is socialism by the back door,” Will argued in this segment of the interview when asked to respond to his global warming critics. “I mean, the whole point of global warming is it is a rationalization for progressives to do what progressives want to do, which is concentrate more and more power in Washington, more and more Washington power in the executive branch, more and more executive branch power in independent czars and agencies, to micromanage the lives of the American people.”
