Dodging and Denying: Climate on the Campaign Trail

October 28, 2014

No sooner had I  posted (below) about climate denier backpedaling in the current election cycle, than I came across Lee Fang’s collection of climate denying politicians across the country. Obviously, still a lot of work to do.

    Yes, a LOT of work to do. I particularly enjoyed the one comment about how “97% of LIBERAL scientists believe in climate change” and seeing another talk about the 31,000 scientists who don’t believe in AGW (speaking of the Oregon Petition, of course, the majority of whose signers were engineers, not scientists).

    They are all reading from the same playbook and must think the voters are stupid, unless of course the voters ARE stupid enough to buy this crap and vote for them. I may not sleep much between now and election day.

      I enjoyed the “Liberal Scientist” comment too, in my illustrious career (which I am gratefully retired and rested from now) I worked with quite a few scientists, non of which were particularly “liberal”, (in fact quite stuffy, conservative & say dare I say very quirky). I think he is mixing up liberal with intelligent.

    • “…the 31,000 scientists who don’t believe in AGW…”

      They are real! After all, you can get a Ph.D. in Creation Science (at least from an online university).

      Creation Scientists have proved that the world is only 6000 years old. All those animals in the Galapagos Islands are a hoax! And Charles Darwin was gay.

      Creation Scientists even have their own museum:

      Unfortunately, liberal teachers (also known as “union thugs”) keep pushing the evolution and AGW myths for their own devious ends! Thankfully, we’ve got home schooling to set things right.

  2. I like the one about believing in climate change is the same as believing in God.

    The government of my country is in the process of replacing it’s fleet of (BMW petrol powered) governmental limousines, I wish they would follow the U.K’s conservative government’s example and use E.Vs and hybrids, but I doubt it as Climate Change does not receive much attention in government here.

    I am no longer particularly religious, but hope (and pray) that U.S Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell is on the button. Not enough action (or urgency) from this generation.

    The snappy, ‘atten-hut’, delivery of those GOP ‘No!’s is reminiscent of the way people used to address a certain Fuhrer. It’s ‘look at me! I don’t even have to consider this question!’
