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.
