Warmist on skeptics: ‘Let’s Call Them What They Are: Climate Liars’ – Claims credit for coining phrase climate ‘deniers’
Warmist Linda Pentz Gunter, formerly of the Union of Concerned Scientists: 'George Monbiot and I were discussing climate skeptics and, as we did so, I began to think about their similarity to Holocaust deniers. I suggested to Monbiot that climate “denier” was a more apt term than “skeptic.” Monbiot ran with it. Today it’s in the lexicon.'
'But it’s time for a change. Because, as the revelations surrounding Exxon clearly illustrate, these “deniers” actually know better...Which means none of them are really Climate Deniers. They, like Exxon, are Climate Liars. This makes them worse than genuine skeptics because they are deliberately sabotaging the long-term survival of our planet for short-term gain.'
