Bigotry and Climate Denial Historically Joined at the Hip

September 11, 2022

I know, I’ve been beating this drum for a while, but most journalists still don’t get that this complex of symptoms is one deadly syndrome.

Above, America’s best known bigot and conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones, on 9/11.
Jones went on to become a leading voice of climate denial, see below the jump.

Here below, a new tweet from Meshawn Maddock, Co-Chair of the Michigan Republican Party, who manages to include anti-gay hatred, and (obviously internalized) Misogyny with minimizing climate risks.

I used Jones as a proxy for your generic wack-job climate denier in 2010.

But he’s been a reliable vector of ignorance, conspiracy, and hatred all along. Here some anti-Catholic red meat along with the Anti-science slant.

    I’ve been beating the drum even longer, saying that the connecting mechanism is projection, & the cause is deeper psychological maladaptations to attachment disorders, trauma, & addiction. Our entire problem is psychological, & until we recognize that & begin to heal the individual & collective illnesses that are destroying civilization & the biosphere, we’ll be unable to change either climate catastrophe or the structures creating the need for it.
