Skip to comments.Opinions: Climate-change deniers are a danger to our security

Imagine during the Cold War that one political party, in the face of overwhelming evidence that the Soviet Union was engaged in espionage against the United States, had a nuclear arsenal pointed at the United States, kept Eastern Europe under its thumb and imprisoned dissenters, refused to consider the Soviet Union a danger - of any sort - to the United States or other Western democracies. And they would offer no credible evidence to the contrary, but rather assert that it was all a hoax. Besides, theyd insist (with no evidence) that it was too expensive to address the challenge posed by the Soviet Union, a danger which they claimed didnt exist (So how expensive could it be? Dont ask!). Actually, you dont have to imagine this scenario. Many on the left have made arguments along these lines, and many on the right have responded by saying they were fuzzy-headed, in denial or captive of interest groups.
That is essentially what is going on, only with the parties flipped, in the climate-change debate. Climate-change denial has become as necessary to ones right-wing identity as aversion to immigration, opposition to most abortions and a disbelief that sexual harassment and assault are widespread. Just as rejecting geopolitical reality became a requirement of inclusion in far-left circles, climate-change denial is a must for those who want to remain in the Trump fold.
At some point, maybe in 2020, Democratic candidates are going to start running on the very sensible conclusion that climate-change deniers are a menace to Americans' economic well-being, comfort and security. It is long past the time to challenge, confront, debunk and frankly, embarrass, adults whod rather adopt some tribal identification than solve a pressing and all-too-real danger to the country.

In what way?
Jenn has gone all over.
The other day someone asked Rubin how she was a conservative. She refused to answer. But her columns speak volumes to the contrary.
BS and very dangerous rhetoric.
Gun rights deniers are a very real and far more credible danger to our society and those of the WPs Ill should be punished for trying to deny us those rights.
80 years ago many Europeans decided people like Jennifer Rubin were a danger to their security; dangerous message here, not without precedent.
Isn’t she the house “conservative?”
Figuring out an excuse to unleash the FISA Court and NSA on us, eh?
Well waht about this. https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2018/11/winter-is-coming-super-grand-solar-minimum.html
Professor Valentina Zharkova gave a presentation of her Climate and the Solar Magnetic Field hypothesis at the Global Warming Policy Foundation in October, 2018.
Zharkova models solar sunspot and magnetic activity. Her models have run at a 93% accuracy and her findings suggest a Super Grand Solar Minimum could begin in 2020.
A Super Grand Solar Minimum would have four magnetic fields out of phase. There was about 40-60 years of cold weather 350 years ago. This was a Maunder Minimum of lower solar activity. The historical cold weather had two magnetic fields out of phase.
Zharkova is predicting a cooling effect that is 2.5 to 4 times larger than the Maunder minimum. Zharkovas analysis shows an 8 watts per square meter decrease in TSI (Total Solar Irradiance). A 2015 Nature study looked at 2 watts per square meter decrease causing a 0.13-degree celsius effect. A four times larger effect would be 0.5-degree celsius.
Zharkova believes the warming models are including the warming effect of increased solar activity. If she is correct there would be cooling and the warming models would be wrong.
Beacuse the swamp doesn’t want to be drained. Therefore, they are a danger to the security of the swamp.
What a stupid woman. Someone actually pays her to write articles like this?
I would say that Climate-Change Accepters are much larger danger to our security! They are willing to give up our sovereignty completely to protect their nonexistent theories and what has become their religion.
In a sane world, a ridiculous, vacuous, imbecilic bitch like this would be pitied.
If it is such rock solid science why is the article in the Opinions section?
Mizzzzz Rubin has ZERO idea what real danger is, but her seditious ilk keep poking at the tiger . . .
I worked outside my whole life. I know climate change is real.
In the summer it was hot. But then in the winter it got really cold. And it happened every friggen year.
And people who are “a danger to our security” must be prosecuted, and imprisoned if necessary. That’s the logical next step, isn’t it?
Perfect. I'm stealing that ...
