A ‘global warming’ extremist named Steve Zwick, writing in Forbes magazine, hinted that those “denialists” who reject the ‘global warming’ theory might see their homes burn down. He wrote:
“We know who the active denialists are – not the people who buy the lies, mind you, but the people who create the lies. Let’s start keeping track of them now, and when the famines come, let’s make them pay. Let’s let their houses burn. Let’s swap their safe land for submerged islands. Let’s force them to bear the cost of rising food prices. They broke the climate. Why should the rest of us have to pay for it?”’
Wow. And this is in Forbes magazine? What is going on at Forbes? Why should a respectable publication give notoriety to a demagogue like Zwick? And don’t think that Zwick saying “Let’s start keeping track of them now… let’s let their houses burn” means that ‘global warming’ is somehow going to get so hot that houses catch on fire. That is patently absurd.
This comment is code language that is suggesting and hinting to radical environmentalists to note the addresses of and to consider committing arson against people whom they disagree with. It is a double-entendre, so to speak. Don’t doubt this, because this is the way the left operates. They use manipulative and incendiary language but then say that they couldn’t possibly mean any harm.
We all know that small groups of eco-extremists are just waiting for orders and opportunities to do such a thing. They have done it in the past. They love destroying things that they don’t like such as housing developments, car dealerships and logging operations. One group in Ohio planned to blow up a bridge.
Zwick writes: “Let’s force them to bear the cost of rising food prices. They broke the climate. Why should the rest of us have to pay for it?”’
Sorry, pal, but the primary force driving higher food prices today is ethanol production (alcohol fuel made from distilling corn) being mandated by environmentalists. This process is diverting huge amounts of Midwestern American corn out of our food supply, pushing up the price of corn for animal feed and increasing the cost for beef, pork, chicken and milk, and for many other food-related applications. So if you want someone to bear the cost of higher food prices it should be environmentalists themselves who have been behind this destructive ethanol idea. In another Forbes column called ‘Can Knowledge Cure Denialism?’ Zwick wrote:
More and more people are questioning the validity of atmospheric science, and that could cost us all dearly – for man-made climate change is a bigger threat to our economy and our well-being than are Iran, the housing bubble, and Newt Gingrich combined.
Furthermore, the science is rock-solid, accessible, and easy to understand. In fact, the scientists carrying out the research are more transparent than any of the groups attacking them, and several excellent writers have created several eminently readable books that deal with these complexities in ways that are both understandable and accurate.
Unfortunately, it’s been deliberately obfuscated by an incessant campaign of disinformation – a campaign being carried out by people who have read the scientific literature and grasped its implications, but who have chosen to distort it.
Some of these distortions comes from groups that are looking more and more like PR firms masquerading as “think tanks” which means their 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status could soon be a thing of the past. But their zombie hordes will still be there, armed with snippets of scientific-sounding gobbledygook that can be dashed off in seconds but take minutes each to debunk – minutes that add up to hours and days as the same incendiary gobbledygook pops up over and over again – everywhere, no matter how often it’s debunked… (end of Zwick excerpt)
OK, let’s take this guy thought by thought, with my comment after each:
Zwick writes: More and more people are questioning the validity of atmospheric science (i.e., questioning ‘global warming’)… Comment: Yes, because the whole ‘warming’ theory was sprung on us by the global enviro movement and the world media without any challenge. And now that rational people have had time to digest the facts and have seen the evidence on both sides, they are balking. Good. This skepticism is spreading and increasing as time passes. Good again. There’s nothing like reality to freshen up a one-sided debate.
Zwick writes: Furthermore, the (climate) science is rock-solid, accessible, and easy to understand. Comment: No it isn’t. It is opaque and secretive and fabricated. It is easily debunked by facts. And remember that the ‘global warming’ alarmists are the ones who brought up this whole charade in the first place. Therefore they are the ones who have the “burden of proof” to prove it. We anti-warmists should not even have to offer mountains of evidence that it does not exist, yet we have easily done so. We have shown how their ‘science’ would never withstand genuine scientific or even legal scrutiny (would never be found correct by an unbiased jury in a court of law looking at both sides of the evidence).
Zwick writes: In fact, the scientists carrying out the (warming) research are more transparent than any of the groups attacking them… Comment: Transparent? Who is this guy kidding? Did he miss the Climate-gate email scandal, in which top ‘climate scientists’ were discussing with each other how to cover up all of the holes in their theory? Meanwhile there have been no such secret e-mails found among us ‘warming’ deniers. Because we don’t have them or need them. We have the truth on our side.
Zwick writes: Unfortunately, it’s been deliberately obfuscated by an incessant campaign of disinformation… Comment: Uhhh, disinformation? How about the disinformation from the ‘warming’ alarmists and their media allies who report ‘warming’ as fact, without challenge? Who censor and target tens of thousands of scientists who disagree with their ‘warming’ theory? Why won’t Al Gore ever debate a GW skeptic? Answer: Because Gore knows that he can never stand up to open debate, that he would lose the debate hands down and be embarrassed.
Zwick writes: Some of these (‘warming’ denials) come from groups that are looking more and more like PR firms masquerading as “think tanks”… Comment: The wealthy and powerful ‘warming alarmists’ in fact are employed in the most lavishly funded “think tanks” of all. They are parts of rich enviro organizations funded by billionaires like George Soros and Michael Bloomberg and many others, and supported by many world governments, by the global university system along with a large swath of the world’s faux-scientific community. Hundreds of thousands of high-profile people worldwide are being paid handsomely to advocate ‘climate change’, often with taxpayer dollars. Meanwhile their every utterance is reported free of charge in most of the world media, which is a priceless gift to them. In contrast those of us skeptics who see the truth are the small group with hardly any funding and we get only negative coverage in the same media. Yet more people now believe us than them.
Zwick writes: (warming skeptics) armed with snippets of scientific-sounding gobbledygook that can be dashed off in seconds but take minutes each to debunk… Comment: Golly, Mr. Z, how about 400 years of really hot weather in the Medieval Period which we know is a historical fact, but which you and your alarmist friends ignore so as to be able to claim that ‘global warming’ (if it even were happening) is “unprecedented”. How about that little Inconvenient Truth?
Do you ever see us warming skeptics calling for the alarmists’ houses to be burned down or other incendiary names that the alarmists have called us, like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. saying that we are “traitors”?
No. Because we have the truth on our side… And truth is the most powerful thing. We do not need to resort to lies or violence.
Meanwhile the rich liberals all around the world, like the ‘warming’ alarmists in Follywood, are not giving up their global travelling and their private jets and all of their homes and yachts and other energy-consuming toys in order to save the planet from the sure destruction that they themselves are predicting.
And wouldn’t you expect all those multi-millionaire and billionaire urban environmentalists like Kennedy to be supervising the construction of walls around their cities like New York City to prevent the cities from being submerged in the coming flood as sea levels rise, as the alarmists are claiming that they certainly are going to rise?
Yes you would. But they have built no walls. Because they all know that this ‘warming’ nonsense is a lie that is designed only to get political power and control the people.
You can always tell how a person really thinks by how they live their lives. And the conduct of the ‘warming’ alarmists shows a pattern of extremism, lies, cover-ups, threats and nefarious behavior that contradicts what they say they believe. They should never be taken seriously. Meanwhile we skeptics will debate them any day, any time to show how wrong they are. But they never will debate us, or even offer to debate us. Because they know that they would lose.
