Skip to comments.The climate change deniers have won

... David Cameron, who once promised that if you voted blue you would go green, now appoints Owen Paterson, a man who is not just ignorant of environmental science but proud of his ignorance, as his environment secretary. George Osborne, who once promised that his Treasury would be "at the heart of this historic fight against climate change", now gives billions in tax concessions to the oil and gas industry, cuts the funds for onshore wind farms and strips the Green Investment Bank of the ability to borrow and lend
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.
Tempting though it is to blame cowardly politicians, the abuse comes too easily. The question remains: what turned them into cowards? Rightwing billionaires in the United States and the oil companies have spent fortunes on blocking action on climate change. A part of the answer may therefore be that conservative politicians in London, Washington and Canberra are doing their richest supporters' bidding. There's truth in the bribery hypothesis. In my own little world of journalism, I have seen rightwing hacks realise the financial potential of denial and turn from reasonable men and women into beetle-browed conspiracy theorists.

A very non biased article. /s
[cowards, hacks, deniers, etc.]
Well, we weren’t the ones who changed it from global warming to climate change because our theories were debunked.
i am always amazed at the logic of writers such as this that seem to believe that somehow rich industrialists want global warming. the idea that maybe there isn’t any global warming never occurs to these people.
Deniers are headed for jail. LOL! See you there.
“i am always amazed at the logic”
It’s not logic. It’s an article of faith. It’s their religion. Therefore logic and reason do enter the fray. In their mind it “is” and there is no debating or doubting that fact.
I don’t know anybody who says the climate doesn’t change. If you live long enough you’re going to experience warmer decades and cooler decades. Man has as much to do with the heating and cooling cycles as a man peeing into Winnipesaukee controls how it will freeze or thaw.
The Guardian -a hotbed of folks who couldn’t get a job cleaning floors in the physics department - jests grandly when it speaks of those “...ignorant of environmental science...”
Send your clowns over to a real science department (not in East Anglia) and watch them be pwnd.
The billionaire Chinese politburo members and unreformed soviet industrialists aren’t buying into AGW either.
So he is a mass murderer at heart or just a clueless tool of the real mass murderers.
I cannot believe that a "reputable" source would publish that statement. One of the most ignorant and idiotic things I have ever seen printed.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
“Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?”
(Quoth the Global Climate Change Church)
Articles like this are the equivalent of sticking fingers in ears and going, “Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah.”
Well, since it’s a natural science, it evolves...
It’s remarkable how transparent is the left — all the tactics and subterfuge and conspiratorial behavior they have, they project onto the people they continually condemn.
The Left's idea of "diversity"; they speak, you shut up.
“If temperatures are rising, and its an irrefutable fact that humans are to blame, why does it require hundreds of millions of dollars to continue to prove it each year? “
It’s almost like Nick Cohen wants global warming to be true. He’s disappointed when the sea levels don’t rise - when people don’t die... Something feels very sick about him.
In your face, climate change hoax deniers!
Man Bear Pig has more lives than anything. I do not claim credit for the earth’s climate.
Global warming is dead in America due to the longest winter in recent memory. Let’s give God’s creation credit for that.
Libtards reject the notion of God and therefore are allowed to shovel snow in their summer shorts.
I reject the notion that a government is my creator.
Environmental modification is, in fact, our raison d'etre without which we would not dominate the planet.
Rather than shun our nature we should embrace it and explore new frontiers - the seas and space would be fine new worlds for the most advanced of all species.
Would we be created just to insist that it was our destiny commit suicide as a species?
In Mark Twains classic, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurs Court, Hank Morgan
uses science to create the illusion of magic.
Contrast that with the global warming alarmist of today who
uses magic to create the illusion of science.
Those illusion are exposed now.
Heritic! Off with his head! Your lack of enthusiasm for our cause has been noted comrade! ;-/
LOL! Freaking drama queen!
Yet again a writer pulls the thoroughly debunked claim that 97% of all scientists agree. As soon as I read that line anywhere in an article I know that the writer isn’t serious and is just spouting propaganda, for that’s all the 97% claim is, pure propaganda.
There should be a concerted effort to get a major news organization to honestly investigate that 97% claim and print or broadcast a thorough debunking. Then move on to the next organization, until it’s acknowledged by all but the propagandists that the claim is ridiculous.
Won’t happen, but in a world of honest journalism, it would.
” The evidence for man-made global warming is as final as the evidence of Auschwitz. No other word will do.”
Glad that’s settled.
Nick sure does like to lie a lot.
“i am always amazed at the logic of writers such as this that seem to believe that somehow rich industrialists want global warming. the idea that maybe there isnt any global warming never occurs to these people.”
I really havent seen any major companies take the anti global warming line. Can you think of 1 company that has publicly come out against it?
On the other hand how many billions have govts handed to the GW advocates?
We’re at 17 years of no warming now, and counting. If that continues for another, say, 8 years, we’ll have a quarter century where the people calling us traitors and, in some cases, calling for us to be imprisoned, or even put to death, for our opinions, will have been shown to be complete idiots. (I know, they already have been to most, but I figure a quarter century might complete the job.)
I don’t mind the idiots who just pontificate, but the ones who have called for punishments should be drummed out of their “profession” whether that be journalist or scientist (and I use those terms very loosely in their cases.)
Having read the sympathetic comments after the posted article, I now feel as if I’d stumbled into a group therapy session for the criminally insane.
“Its almost like Nick Cohen wants global warming to be true. Hes disappointed when the sea levels dont rise - when people dont die... Something feels very sick about him.”
The one thing we never hear from these global warming fanatics is what it will take to stop it. Turning our thermostats down and driving more efficient cars is not going to do it. Neither will windmills and solar. It will take the complete restructuring of our economy and forcing people to dramatically lower their lifestyles. At the same time food prices and everything else will rise dramatically.
Even if WE do it, the Chinese and Indians have said they will not so whatever we do is useless.
How modern global warming science took form
I invoke Godwin’s Law.
Only a Nazi would invoke Godwin’s Law.
Are you calling me a Nazi?
4 billion years of climate change on Earth is the truth, the truth wins eventually.
Headline: “Nick’s Knickers Knotted Now”.
As soon as these lefties can get their buds in china and Russia to implement their anti carbon policies, get back to us in the west.
Climate denier = impervious to bovine excrement
Odds are against it. Massive global climate change at this time in history is unlikely. That's because at any time in history the odds are against it. I'm going with 'what's common is common'...
On the other hand liberals have been using fear tactics about the world ending unless they GET MORE POWER and MONEY - forever...
Before the "global warming scam" there was peak oil, club of rome, population bomb, nuclear winter, global cooling, no water, natural resources will disappear, and many others. As soon as one 'the world's going to end' bullsh*t scam' is debunked, they come up with a new one.
All these scams have one thing in common. We're ALL going to die and suffer IF we don't give Liberal elites more money and power.
I am soooooooo sick of these blowhard democrats and their 'the world's going to end sandwich-board mentality.
A world of 'honest journalism'? LOL - good one Norseman... that bird has flown the coop...
Leave it to The Graun to even hack a simple headline.
Fact is climate always changes, and for factors not influenced appreciably by the most heinous of human activity.
And that's the point.
Lying leftists and lying leftist rags like the Guardian promote the anthropogenic global warming scam to grow government at the expense of individual freedom, but they are losing.
Trying as hard as they will to propagandize ... but their lies are not swaying any but those who are lifelong useful idiots.
Uh, it's a joke. Godwin's Law, right?
Deadpan is hard in text.
