Has Denier Karma finally Run over its Dogma?

December 15, 2011

Karma’s a Bitch.

At least it has been in my life. Generally, what goes around comes around – well, not if your last name is Bush and you live in the rarified strata of those who only fail up  – but generally for us little people, this is the case.

Many climate deniers obviously believe they are above the laws of cause and effect, that the normal laws of physics and man do not hold for them. Hence we have the obvious arrogance of the individual or individuals stealing emails from climate scientists.

Tonight, there’s disquiet among those who might  have thought themselves untouchable. Tonight, there’s a quiver on the dark side. I don’t frequent any of these blogs – their inside baseball venom and self dramatization bore me. But a few of them have just gotten a little mail from the Department of Justice.

The Air Vent: 

Tallbloke a fellow recipient blog of the climategate emails, and linked on the right, was raided today in what seems to be a coordinated effort by Metropolitan Police, the Norfolk Constabulary and the Computer Crime division and the U.S. Department of Justice Criminal Division.  His home was raided and computers were taken for ‘examination’.

Updates are coming shortly which will explain further.  The same is coming to a blogger near you.

Perhaps this post should be titled  –  “The Empire Strikes Back”


Right – the persecution complex ever at the ready.

Save the drama for your mama.

    I have to say, this is pretty hilarious. And it’s about time that these folks who aided a criminal by disseminating stolen emails finally face some consequences (albeit pretty minor consequences).

    No better way to scare a bunch of conspiracy theorists than to send government agents to their home to take their stuff. Karma’s a bitch!

    Well, it’s not before time. Let’s hope the trail can be followed to the real criminals – the ones who funded and were in on the criminality from the start. I am assuming there were others. However, it would be great if the individuals in the raids are on the receiving end of some really unpleasant justice. I hope that this exposes the network of liars for what they clearly are, that includes, but is not limited to the usual suspects.

  3. I guess this episode will mostly expose the general unpleasantness against fellow human beings, widespread among CAGW believers. Not that any further evidence were really needed.

    Keep up the good work, it’s invaluable in demonstrating to onlookers what kind of hellish world you’re planning to build.

    What an utterly dishonest comment – typical and disgusting trolling. Anyone with a shred of integrity will realise this is the exact reverse of the truth.

    The above comment makes sense if “CAGW believers” is replaced by “AGW climate-denier zombies and assorted liars”

    I’m a rational, educated person who firmly accepts the science of AGW, and I must say that anyone who thinks there’s such a thing as “karma” that “generally” holds, that is one of the “laws of cause and effect”, or “laws of physics and man”, is deeply into the woo … no such thing is even remotely true. Occasionally life is fair, but generally it isn’t. Consider a) that no one is raiding the home of lowlifes like Maurizio Morabito or in any other way punishing the vast majority of intellectually corrupt deniers, b) raiding the homes of deniers who are not involved in actually stealing the emails is inappropriate to do or wish for, and c) the serious consequences of AGW will vast numbers of people who in no way deserve it.

      sometimes stuff comes at us out of nowhere. Lightning strikes. Meteors fall. That’s life.
      but watch people over time – and I maintain that our decisions have consequences,
      and our lives are overwhelmingly the sum total of our decisions day to day.
      simple enough.

    • In the Sixties, we “demoted” Karma from a cosmic principle to “What goes around, comes around.” There are glaring exceptions, but it may be a statistically valid hypothesis.

    Klimate Gestapo,

    the hacker isn’t from the UK or the US.

  7. Jim Balter is trying too much to embellish his CAGW believer credentials. Can’t be taken seriously.

    OTOH Peter your worldview makes sense. Evil humans have been ruining the planet so CAGW is the “right” comeuppance. Hence all this talk about the science is actually secondary. A distraction on the path to repentance.

      I believe that people are responsible for their actions, and that actions have consequences – in another time, that would have made me a conservative.

      In todays world, we have a “new age” brand of phony conservatives, climate deniers and their tea party brethren, who seem to feel that they can change reality by listening to the right news channel, or repeating nonsense often enough.
      So they believe that WMDs, Kenyan birth certificates, “death panels”, are real- and climate science is not.
      That kind of ruby slipper BS is not the way the universe works – sorry to offend..

  8. Peter – there’s a big world out there beyond Fox News and the Tea Party. As a UK resident Italian I am untouched by US-only party-political remarks (and find it quite amusing to see progressives and conservatives use the same categories of thought, in your country) .
