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’

Article excerpt: A climate research professor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville today defended his use of the term “Nazi” in a blog post, saying he was responding to ridicule that had Nazi overtones. Roy Spencer, who acknowledges his views on climate change are frequently contrary to more widespread views that humans are most responsible for global warming, objected to being called a “denier” when it comes to climate change. His personal blog, which is not affiliated with UAH, includes a Feb. 20 entry headlined “Time to push back against the global warming Nazis.” “When people stop calling me a denier, which implies I’m as evil as a Holocaust denier, I will stop calling them global warming Nazis,” Spencer told AL.com today. 

The Atlanta-based Anti-Defamation League issued a statement Tuesday condemning Spencer’s use of the term Nazi. The statement from Shelley Rose, ADL Southeast Interim Regional Director, said in the statement that Spencer’s “analogy of proponents of global warming to Nazis is outrageous and deeply offensive. This analogy is just the latest example of a troubling epidemic of comparisons to Hitler and the Holocaust.”

Spencer also questioned why the Anti-Defamation League does not protest the use of “deniers” when it has Nazi overtones. “Where was the Anti-Defamation League when so many people, politicians, news people, other scientists have been calling us deniers?” he said. “Where was the Anti-Defamation League when that was going on? “Yeah, I agree with them. Calling people Nazis is not something you do lightly. But my doing this is a response to the attacks I’ve been getting – which appeal to Nazi imagery, specifically the Holocaust. Where is the Anti-Defamation League on that issue? Why aren’t they outraged on that?” The “denier” description is not accurate, Spencer said. “They call us climate change deniers,” he said. “We don’t deny climate change. They call us global warming deniers. We don’t deny global warming. It’s a lie.”

Update:

Czech Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl reacts to ADL smear of Roy Spencer: ‘The ADL remained silent when Heidi Cullen and/or Grist proposed Nuremberg trials and/or decertification in 2006 for the climate skeptics. These trials were later defended by James Hansen and became common among self-described warriors for peace and social justice in recent days. The ADL didn’t see problems with those proposals. Also, they didn’t say anything when James Hansen coined the label “death trains” for the vehicles in coal power plants, in order to compare CEOs of coal companies (and perhaps climate skeptics whom he is truly obsessed about) to the officials in charge of the Auschwitz concentration camp…Have you fell from another galaxy, Ms Rose? Or are you really such a cowardly bully who remains silent when mindless rabble and mobs are harassing, threatening, and slinging mud at individuals, but you won’t lose the opportunity to harass brave and sensible individuals yourself? In his original text, Roy Spencer hasn’t used the words “Jew”, “Jewish”, “Israel”, “Hebrew”, “Semite”, not even once. He talked about Nazism…But it’s just a fact that Nazism wasn’t all about Jews. Nazism was distorting and damaging all aspects of the human and social life.’ –  ‘My country has been under the Nazi oppression for something like 6 years and I won’t allow an outsider to teach me what is analogous to Nazism and what isn’t.’

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’ – Excerpt: ‘As NASA climate scientist James Hansen has suggested, Nuremberg-style trials must be held for senior corporate (including corporate media) and political executives responsible for crimes against humanity and planet that almost defy belief. They must be held to account for their crimes. But much more importantly, of course, we must act – now – to save ourselves from utter disaster.’

NASA’s Hansen doubles down: Defends accusing climate skeptics of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ — Skeptics = Nazis?<br /> james.e.hansen@nasa.gov

Flashback: NASA’s Hansen doubles down: Defends accusing climate skeptics of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ — Skeptics = Nazis? – Hansen ‘said that he used that highly charged phrase, ‘crime against humanity’, ‘not only for dramatic effect, but also because it is accurate, given the enormous scale of the consequences to humanity’ if manmade global warming is not somehow stopped and reversed. ‘It wasn’t only aimed at the fossil fuel CEOs,’ Hansen added. ‘This also applies to politicians who pretend the global warming is not manmade’

Flashback 2006: NUREMBERG-STYLE TRIALS PROPOSED FOR GLOBAL WARMING SKEPTICS: ‘A U.S. based environmental magazine, Grist Mag, is now advocating Nuremberg-style war crimes trials for skeptics of human caused catastrophic global warming. Grist Magazine’s staff writer David Roberts called for the Nuremberg-style trials for the “bastards” who were members of what he termed the global warming “denial industry.” Roberts wrote in the online publication on September 19, 2006, “When we’ve finally gotten serious about global warming, when the impacts are really hitting us and we’re in a full worldwide scramble to minimize the damage, we should have war crimes trials for these bastards — some sort of climate Nuremberg.”

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’

Master Climate Race: NYU Bioethicist S. Matthew Liao: ‘If you can give something like oxytocin to people, then maybe they’ll be more willing to cooperate, to care more about the environment’

Liao ‘also said taking drugs like Ritalin to enhance cognition may help with the global population problem, since there’s a link between cognitive ability and lower birthrate.’

Fmr. Harvard U. Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl Compares NYU Prof. Matthew Liao to Nazis: ‘It only differs from the most perverse medical plans during Nazi era by one detail’ — ‘Mr Liao and his thugs want to exterminate mankind as we know it’

Analysis of NYU Prof Liao: ‘He has absolutely no idea that he is either immoral or out of his mind. He is clearly both’ [email protected] – ‘Liao’s effort to change history, whatever the motivation or lack of underlying knowledge, cannot be abided…It is simply the publication of an academic paper that presages the death of science, and indeed the death of reason, in the West’

NYU Prof. S. Matthew Liao of Center for Bioethics promotes ‘solution of human engineering. It involves the biomedical modification of humans to make them better at mitigating climate change’ – ‘We shall argue that human engineering potentially offers an effective means of tackling climate change…the possibility of making humans smaller. Human ecological footprints are partly correlated with our size…a more speculative and controversial way of reducing adult height is to reduce birth weight…Pharmacological enhancement of altruism and empathy…could increase the likelihood that we adopt the necessary behavioural & market solutions for curbing climate change’

Former Harvard U. Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl Compares NYU Prof. Matthew Liao to the Nazis: ‘It only differs from the most perverse medical plans during Nazi era by one detail’ – Motl: ‘I am totally disgusted by this stuff and by the fact that NYU & Oxford harbor scumbags…It only differs from the most perverse medical plans during the Nazi era by one detail: the Nazis at least wanted to create a race that had some qualities according to some rather sane criteria (well, in some cases, at least). Instead, Mr Liao and his thugs want to exterminate the mankind as we know it and create a sea of short stinky junk losers similar to themselves’

Be Afraid, Very Afraid! Prof. Liao wants to drug the public to make them more compliant with his ideology. ‘Pharmacological enhancement’: ‘Test subjects given the posocial hormone oxytocin were more willing to share money with strangers…Also, a noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor increased social engagement and cooperation’
