Tomkiewicz: 'These [Hitler] 'deniers' might as well have been called skeptics in their day...I could not and would not 'cheapen' a genocide that killed most of my family and deprived me of my childhood'
Climate Depot Response: 'Your skeptic/Holocaust denier comparisons do 'cheapen' a genocide that killed most of your family.' You are not exempt from being offensive due to your horrible suffering'
'Denmark, an early adopter of the global-warming mania, now requires its households to pay the developed world's highest power prices — about 40¢ a kilowatt hour, or three to four times what North Americans pay today. Germany, whose powerhouse economy gave green developers a blank cheque, is a close second, followed by other politically correct nations such as Belgium, the headquarters of the EU, and distressed nations such as Spain'
'No one —scientist or otherwise — has yet come up with the definitive explanation of first life forms on earth. There is no conclusive bridge between self-replicating molecules capable of mutation (a definition of life) and primordial, lifeless, dimly-lit planet Earth of some 3 billion years ago. So even most erudite thinkers must resort to aliens, life-bearing comets, God — or, in my case, beats-the-heck-out-of-me'
'...although they have this theory which isn't panning out the way they thought it would. Great. So much for the value of consensus huh? To his credit, at least, Lovelock admits to the mistake. Would that the rest of the alarmists had that sort of integrity. Instead, many choose to double down and make themselves even less credible'
'Mann begins his account by re-cycling his original outright lie that we had asked him for an 'excel spreadsheet...Mann brazenly repeated his earlier lie to the Penn State Investigation Committee. Needless to say, the 'Investigation' Committee didn't actually investigate the lie by crosschecking evidence, but accepted Mann's testimony as ending the matter. In the book, instead of leaving well enough alone, Mann once again re-iterated the lie'
'THE GREAT RAINFOREST HEIST': Green groups 'actively promote industrially logging Earth's last old forests. Through their support of the existing 'Forest Stewardship Council' (FSC), and/or planned compromised 'Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation' (REDD), they are at the forefront of destroying ancient forests for disposable consumer items – claiming it is 'sustainable forest management' and 'carbon forestry'
'Analysis notes 7 other publications have found global sea level rise from tide gauges to be significantly less, from 1.2 to 1.9 mm/yr, and mentions the Holgate 2007 paper which found sea level rise decelerated over the 20th century'
"Climate distress is very difficult, if not impossible, to bear alone...The IPCC report is the bearer of alarming news for all on Earth. How can we best hear and respond to this alarm, caring for ourselves and others while mustering motivation and commitment for desperately needed action? The research of climate psychology tells us that rather than suppress or avoid our distress, we need to welcome it as a healthy response to the climate crisis. If we are not feeling some level of fear and grief, we are in denial. Acknowledging the myriad feelings of distress we have in response to climate breakdown is crucial for sustained action in response. Our feelings show us how much we care about our world, our communities, our lives and our loved ones. This caring is the basis for the action and change our world needs from us all right now.
