College professor: ‘Climate change genocide’ will be worse than Holocaust
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 05/16/2012 2:40:37 PM PDT by oliverdarcy

A professor at Brooklyn College recently published a series of articles on the official campus website in which he associated climate change skeptics with early Holocaust deniers.

"I make my 'climate change denier' claim for one reason," wrote Micha Tomkiewicz, the Director of Environmental Studies at Brooklyn College and himself a Holocaust survivor.

"It's easy today to teach students to condemn the Holocaust, but it's much more difficult to teach them how to try to prevent future genocides...I don't want my grandchildren to die in a climate change genocide that we could have helped head off," he continued. Tomkiewicz, also warned that failure to take decisive action on global warming could result in the death of "billions of people."

The lack of forced transfer of wealth via fear creation through a lie will kill billions?

Wow that's one hell of a lie.

Spottswoode: From what I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.N.C.E has gathered, it would be 9/11 times 100.
Gary Johnston: 9/11 times a hundred? Jesus, that’s...
Spottswoode: Yes, 91,100.
Chris: Basically, all the worst parts of the Bible.

Imaginary crises kill imaginary people. However, I wonder what Tomkiewicz thinks of abortion.

Moron. We're facing imminent Global Freezing, like the Maunder Minimum - crop failures that will result in starvation.

These “professors” and “scientists” have been found to be complete frauds, and since they have no facts or data to back up their fraud they resort to name calling and scare tactics.

Sadly, the term “Holocaust” will soon have lost all of it’s impact and historical signifance, if this overuse and misuse continues.

It is unfortunate that Tomkiewicz strongly believes pseudo science, counter productive characteristic for a college level professor.

There has been both global warming and global cooling climate change. Our climate will continue to change. But climate change on the Earth (and other planets) is caused by the Sun's fluctuating energy output and closeness to the Earth. The absolutely dominate greenhouse gas on Earth is water vapor or humidity, clouds, cloud cover, ocean temperatures and currents all impacted by the Sun's radiation. Mankind has nothing to do with climate change.

80 years ago, people like this would be on street-corners holding signs, or quietly tucked away in the room in the attic when visitors were in the house.

Now they get to be on the public payroll at “universities.”

I have to wonder what his position on anti-semitism in europe, anyplace ending in "stan" and even liberal circles in the USA might be?

It is a pity that a survivor of the holocaust, even at 6 years old at the time, chooses to co-opt the suffering and misery of that catastrophe to further his own academic nest in the hopes of more government grants, phony reports, diddled data, et al.

We had another in this country, Congressman Tom Lantos, with a similar background but much older during his ordeal. He also chose to take that suffering and bank on it to further his own ends. I never saw a man more liberally corrupt and bankrupt at the same time. It is extremely unbelievable to be expected to believe that such and individual can decry the wholesale extinction in the Holocaust yet so blithely vote for abortion rights on a repeatedly wholesale basis.

These climate hoax folks are getting silly.

Reminds me of the 1980’s when everyone of these same type of folks were telling us of the coming nuclear winter/holocaust/war, etc.

Funny how it never happened.

Saw “War Games” was on tv last night and it reminds me how all these idiots thought it was about nuclear weapons when it was a story about a computer.

The real genocide is being perpetrated with regulations against new, small, rural manufacturing starts and regulations against many other independent, productive activities. Much of that regulation (along with policies against downscale families) comes from global interests that are using government to prevent competition.

Funny...the end-of-the-world stories are also coming from the top, down, with big money sponsoring them. Oh, well, enjoy the slide.

Micka, didn’t you use to play the sheriff on THE RIFLEMAN. I thought so. Micka, you are a socialist brainwashed drone who clings to the AGW/IPCC lie for most likely one of two reasons, either the continuation of a financial gravy train grant or your liberal head is lodged up your liberal rear end. In spite of the release of the emails which exposed the data used by the climate scammers had to be doctored because it didn’t fit the political result they wanted. You and the leftist frauds ignore this completely and choose to live in your LIBERAL FANTASY WORLD

Apparently it is hard for Freepers to grasp their total commitment to removing most of the current population. Not unlike Congress's total lack of understanding of the danger posed by Islam. Normalcy bias is a real phenomenon.

The perfesser is admitting that climate-change is faith-based religion, and unbelievers are heretics.

But I thought the Greenies wanted the death of billions since “Humanity is a virus infecting the Earth Mother Goddess Gaia” (an article of faith for the Greenies).

Only the most recent in an unending line of topics representing academic dementia.

Relax, professor - have a drink, get l*id, shoot some stick; do some f***ing thing. You’ll die of a brain aneurism before the melting ice caps get you.

Most of America's "grandchildren" come from south of the border. They are tan and eat cactus for breakfast.
