Climate Skeptics, ISIS — What’s the difference?

Posted By Joanne Nova On March 13, 2015 @ 8:47 pm In Global Warming | Comments Disabled

Just another day in a science debate, right?

One side of a scientific theory, are generally bully boys  conducting witchhunts, wishing of execution, joking about chopping off heads, and thinks it’s funny to mock explode children of dissenters. This is the same side who wants to force us pay billions to change the weather. They dehumanize their critics with relentless petty names that imply they have no rational brain. When their lauded hero professor can’t convince the crowd with reasoned arguments, he discusses using industrial sabotage and destruction to get the message across. Go blow up a dam to save the planet?

The other side are upstanding scientists.

Pat Bagley, the Salt Lake Tribune cartoonist, has things a little mixed up.

Artists used to pride themselves on being a thorn in the side of authority. In the topsy turvey world of “climate science” they instead attack the volunteers fighting corruption and incompetence, and help the industrial green machine, global financial houses, and ever-bigger government (or if you like, respectively the environmental, financial, and political authorities).

Someone should let Pat Bagley know (in the politest possible way). The best cartoonists — the funniest ones who hit a nerve are the ones who know what they are talking about.

Seriously Pat, the real scientists are the ones who don’t yell abuse, but use empirical evidence.

At least Bagley didn’t want to kill Santa like Phillipe Squarzoni. Big comfort.
