Global Warming Nazis

March 25, 2014

Nick Cohen at the Guardian is upset because theĀ  British and American governments have somehow opted not to destroy their economies and permanently reduce their citizen’s standards of living on the basis of not-so-settled science. I found his column via The Right Scoop. I wouldn’t bother mentioning the column except he takes the slander “climate change denier” and doubles down on it. I have long stated that the use of this phrase is dishonest and a sign that the other side has no real facts. Cohen, obviously thinks otherwise.

All of which is a long way of saying that the global warming deniers have won. And please, can I have no emails from bed-wetting kidults blubbing that you can’t call us “global warming deniers ” because “denier” makes us sound like “Holocaust deniers”, and that means you are comparing us to Nazis? The evidence for man-made global warming is as final as the evidence of Auschwitz. No other word will do.

Very well. If that is how they want to play, I’ll give it right back at them. Henceforth, anyone who asserts that manmade global warming is a problem that requires catastrophic changes to the world’s economy will be known as a Global Warming Nazi. I think the phase is entirely appropriate since the Global Warming Nazis advocate policies that will end up killing millions of people all over the world, most of them dark-skinned, and consign millions more, mostly dark-skinned, to hunger and poverty with no hope of bettering their lives. No other word will do.
