Strong governments, really?
Regardless the merits of global warming scientific competence, the idea that strong central governments are wise, efficient and effective managers of anything is just a bit odd. Is the author so in need of control and alignment with his way of thinking that a strong government should come down on any and all who disagree? Voting for a democratic dictatorship (one man, one vote, one time) seems to be more of a Taliban conception (that didn't work very well for the Afghans), and I don't think it would work well here in America. Strong government is the culprit of American malaise and mediocrity, not a pathway to greatness.
