Firing Back At The Global Warming Radicals

Two winter storms in a three week period blanketed the South in snow and ice. Naturally, the Left couldn’t resist the chance to link these winter storms to “climate change.” Qualified scientists like Bette Midler and Politico‘s Roger Simon - not to be confused with PJ Media’s Roger L. Simon - have tried to tie this winter’s weather to an assault on Mother Earth at the hands of capitalism. (News flash: the only climate change causing these storms was the change from fall to winter.) One climate scientist with his fingers on the pulse of reality is fighting back against the climate change madness, and he’s stepping up his game.

Dr. Roy Spencer is one of the most renowned climatologists in the United States. His work for NASA and the University of Alabama at Huntsville over the past three decades has proven valuable to the scientific community. Most importantly, Spencer has become a leading voice against the fallacy of manmade global warming.

Spencer can barely contain his anger against the vitriolic language of the environmental movement – particularly the use of the word “deniers” to describe those of us who do not subscribe to the dangerous, radical, and altogether false premise that civilization and capitalism cause global warming. And he has declared that it’s time to fight back, using their own metaphor against them:

They indirectly equate (1) the skeptics’ view that global warming is not necessarily all manmade nor a serious problem, with (2) the denial that the Nazi’s extermination of millions of Jews ever happened.

Too many of us for too long have ignored the repulsive, extremist nature of the comparison. It’s time to push back.

I’m now going to start calling these people “global warming Nazis”.

It's been said that, while the Right views the Left as being stupid, the Left views the Right as being evil. One could then infer that the Left is therefore waging a holy war against the right. The Right had better stop thinking of the Left as being stupid, then, because that is underestimating the Left.

Never, in this day in age, assume anything but a suicide charge from the left on any issue they choose to champion. You have to be instantly merciless. They no longer deserve the first benefit of a doubt. The default assumptions should be that they are motivated by malice, restrained by no notions of civility save those that temporarily camoflauge their intent and willing to employ all means available without getting caught. They are a mortal enemy to our way of life. They Fight on many fronts with us. Give no quarter. Respect them only for how fatally dangerous they are.

I think Spencer is wrong to default to the Nazis as the archtype of evil, especially as it refers to the climate psuedoscience clique. Climate psuedoscience has more in common with the Stalinist lacky biologist T.D. Lysenko then the Nazis. We all know that Nazism and Communism are cut from the same cloth but by only using the Nazi analogy we validate its seperation from Communism. Lysenko silenced his opposition through denunciation and many of them went to their deaths in the GULAG. The climate hoaxers would do the same if they could. Brand them Lysenko-ist and make them defend that.

There's a lot in what you say but there's a recognition power in the word "Nazi" that "you...you...Lysenkoist!" just lacks.

The AGW folks have seized the high ground with their Orwellian use of the words "skeptics" and "deniers," particularly the latter term, with its unsavory connotations. I suggest that they are the true deniers: hoax deniers. Why don't we start calling them that?

And when the climate Nazis accuse us of being "flat-earthers," just turn it around and tell them that they're being "hollow-earthers." In answer to their puzzled looks, say that it's an example of a settled belief that was ancillary to a set of government policies that went horribly wrong and refer them to the Thule Society.

Yep. I have been waging this war for a long time now, especially since Obama was elected. I am sick of people attributing his actions to stupidity.

To continue to do so after all these years IS stupidity!

"Heat is being sequestered in the deep oceans."

I see.

Yes, well, heat doesn't magically transport itself from the surface layer to deeper layers, just like that. It would collect at first near the surface, leading to easily observable changes in such things as the Gulf Stream, ADO, PDO, etc. Where are thisy, please?

Not to mention, one hallmark of all this overheated surface layer ocean water would be increased Hurricane production.

We are at a low in Hurricane production.

There are currents in three dimensions in the ocean, and one could imagine a mechanism by which significant heat is transported to ocean depths without necessarily a large buildup at the surface. No one has demonstrated such a mechanism but it can be imagined rationally.
The thing is, if it's true, it means the earth's temperature systems do what us deniers say it does -- modulates the effects of various forcings in a negative-feedback loop and in moderating mechanisms.

Absent significant outside forces at play warm water always rises to the top. It's simple physics. Currents could in theory force warmer water down, but the resulting system would be unstable and by necessity correct itself over time. This whole ocean depths heat sink is a desperate attempt by the climate Nazis to explain away phenomenon obvious to the casual observer.

I'm sure you're right. I just wanted to make the point that the concept is more plausible than some realists credit and more plausible than most of the AGW stuff is.
And we know that depth and temperature do funny things because of interference with sonar operations.
Current-carries-warm-water-deep is waaaay more plausible than the global-warming-ice-changes-cause-crust-rebound-causing-earthquake-Fukishima! that made the rounds. I don't believe it, not without some evidence more than speculation, but it isn't absurd.
Oxidized hydrogen is funny stuff.
