Total Horsesh*t! ADL goes after skeptical Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer for use of ‘analogy of proponents of global warming to Nazis’ – ADL calls it ‘outrageous and deeply offensive’

Update: Roy Spencer Responds: Dr. Roy Spencer Responds to ADL: ‘I am calling out the ADL for not denouncing the widespread use of Nazi Holocaust imagery in public statements made by journalists, politicians, and even some scientists

Climate Depot Responds: Why is the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) singling out Roy Spencer in the climate debate? Until the ADL goes after global warming activists for their continued comparisons and analogies of skeptics to Nazis, racists and evil people, the ADL has no business singling out Spencer reacting to Nazi analogies used on skeptics for years. Climate Depot’s unsolicited advice to Roy Spencer, DO NOT BACKDOWN.  Tell the ADL to investigate the global warming activists who have been smearing skeptics for years. Dr. Spencer was only reacting and fed up with the continued use of Nazi analogies.

ADL Person who condemned Dr. Roy Spencer from Anti Defamation League is apparently a climate activist

Did the ADL go after James Hansen for his use of Nazi analogies? Flashback: NASA’s Hansen doubles down: Defends accusing climate skeptics of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ — Skeptics = Nazis? 

Does the ADL go after global warming activists who constantly use the term ‘denier’ to describe global warming skeptics? Flashback from Prof. Roger Pielke, Jr.: ‘The phrase ‘climate change denier’ is meant to be evocative of the phrase ‘holocaust denier’ – Pielke Jr.: ‘Let’s be blunt. This allusion is an affront to those who suffered and died in the Holocaust. This allusion has no place in the discourse on climate change. I say this as someone fully convinced of a significant human role in the behavior of the climate system’

Did the ADL go after Grist Mag. for calling for Nuremberg-Style rial for global warming skeptics? If not, why not? Flashback 2006: NUREMBERG-STYLE TRIALS PROPOSED FOR GLOBAL WARMING SKEPTICS: ‘A U.S. based environmental magazine, Grist Mag.

Did the ADL go after CBS News journalist Scott Pelley? If not, why not? Flashback: CBS News Anchor Scott Pelley compared global warming skeptics to ‘Holocaust deniers’ — ‘If I do an interview with Elie Wiesel, am I required as a journalist to find a Holocaust denier?’

Is the ADL going to issue a statement about today’s post from climate activists: Are you a climate ‘denier’ Nazi!? Warmists declare: ‘Nuremberg-style trials must be held for senior corporate and political executives responsible for crimes against humanity and planet that almost defy belief’
