How Can Climate Change Advocates Equate My Skepticism to Holocaust Denial?
It's not like the only evidence of the Holocaust was a bunch of scientists pointing to a computer simulation saying what they think would happen to the Jewish population in Europe.

Do these people not understand what the Holocaust was? We’re talking about a coordinated attempt to exterminate the Jews. Millions of them were rounded up and sent to forced labor camps and killed in gas chambers. It’s horrific beyond belief. How could one compare the temperature possibly rising a couple degrees to people being put in ovens? What low opinion must those people have of Jews — of their fellow human beings?
And what are those making the comparison saying about the evidence of the Holocaust? It wasn’t like the only evidence of it was a bunch of scientists pointing to a computer simulation saying what they think would happen to the Jewish population in Europe. And you know how we get a really cold winter and we have all the global warming people assure us that “sometimes global warming can cause it to become colder — we predicted that but didn’t feel like mentioning it until now”? Is there an equivalent with the Holocaust where suddenly the Jewish population shot up during it and we had scientists explaining how mass murder sometimes causes that?
And then there are the horrific pictures of the piles of dead bodies from the Nazi concentration camps. What pictures do the global warming people have? They have their popular one of a polar bear on what looks like a melting piece of ice, and we’re supposed to feel bad for the polar bear even though they like to swim. Plus, there are the eyewitness accounts of victims of the Holocaust, while all global warming has are some people saying how it seems a bit hotter than usual (but don’t mention if it’s cooler than usual because that’s unscientific).
The fact is, the evidence for the Holocaust is so concrete, the only people who would deny it are anti-Semites who don’t want to face the horrors of what their hatred could lead to. On the other hand, global warming evidence is a bunch of eggheads (and even more dimwitted actors, musicians, and journalists) pointing to a bunch of numbers on a piece of paper. It is absolutely asinine in comparison. To even compare the two as equivalent in any way is itself a sort of Holocaust denial.
The Holocaust was the nadir of humanity, the worst man can be to his fellow man, and it’s not some political point to be tossed around because you’re super duper certain your issue is really, really important. If the people worrying about global warming want to convince others, maybe they should reflect a bit more on how to be less repugnant about it. Otherwise, I might just decide to leave them here on Earth when I finish my plan to escape the tyrannical sun. Then McCartney and friends will be left to sit here and wait as here comes the sun.
