Let’s start with some racism:
Bangladeshis suffer because they have failed to understand the basic things that make an economy work to better their lives.
People like McKibben are pathetic. They think of themselves as martyrs to some glorious cause, yet are far too vain and cowardly to strap on a vest full of C4. Or to even to publicly set themselves on fire, as some did during the Vietnam era, to make their point. They are beneath contempt.
Lies and Nazi comparisons:
Rachel Carson’s book “Silent Spring” and the subsequent blanket ban on DDT has so far resulted in the death of > 30 Million. I believe that Hitler and Stalin killed less people, on an individual basis at least.
These people are pure enemies of human freedom.
Ah, another example of the “intelligentsia” at work. We need to scrub our colleges and universities of these idiots out to save the world.
If we convert 50% of our food to bio-fuels, and then go to organic farming as well, something like 70% of the world’s population will need to be culled, in order to balance the food supply.
Al Gore and the global warming alarmists such as left wing politicians, pseudo scientists, journalists, the Hollywood idiots, have been inflicting psychological terrorism upon a whole generation of children all over the world for the last 20 years.
These charlatans should be brought to justice as the perpetrators of the biggest scam in the history of this planet.
And yet still come comments are too graphic to be allowed by moderators:
[snip – too graphic]
That’s all from one comment thread at Watt’s Up With That. The thing that scares me the most is that none of these people were criticised or pulled up for being too extreme, or, well, wrong.
I’m studying the community at the site for my MSc dissertation, looking at how climate skeptics react to evidence that the globe is warming (like, uh, this). I want to understand what makes these people take the position they do, but I’m regularly seeing comments – like the C4 one – that make my eyes bleed and my head hurt. I will be happy when this study is finished.
So here’s a nice picture to cheer you up.
