Tattoos. Liberals like tattoos.
Not Miami Ink or LA Ink sort of tattoos but brand “climate deniers” like the Nazis branded the Jews kind of tattoos. Just a little tidbit from the Sydney Morning Herald by Robert Glover, broadcaster, Sydney Morning Herald columnist, avowed global warmist and apparent tattoo aficionado.
Surely it’s time for climate-change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies.
Not necessarily on the forehead; I’m a reasonable man. Just something along their arm or across their chest so their grandchildren could say, ”Really? You were one of the ones who tried to stop the world doing something? And why exactly was that, granddad?”
On second thoughts, maybe the tattooing along the arm is a bit Nazi-creepy. So how about they are forced to buy property on low-lying islands, the sort of property that will become worthless with a few more centimetres of ocean rise, so they are bankrupted by their own bloody-mindedness? Or what about their signed agreement to stand, in the year 2040, lashed to a pole at a certain point in the shallows off Manly? If they are right and the world is cooling – ”climate change stopped in the year 1998” is one of their more boneheaded beliefs – their mouths will be above water. If not …
OK, maybe the desire to see the painful, thrashing death of one’s opponents is not ideal. But, my God, these people are frustrating. You just know that in 20 years’ time, when the costs of our inaction are clear, the climate deniers will become climate-denial-deniers. ”Who me? Oh, no, I always believed in it. Yes, it’s hard to understand why people back then were so daft. It’s so much more costly to stop it now.”
That’s why the tattoo has its appeal.
Now far a little dash of false equivalency so his idea seems so “fair”:
Not that the other side isn’t frustrating. There’s a type of green zealot who appears to relish climate change. Every rise in sea levels is noted excitedly. Every cyclone is applauded and claimed as a noisy, deadly witness for their side.
Based on the content of the column, wouldn’t Mr. Glover seem to qualify as a “green zealot who appears to relish climate change” ?
Global climate change isn’t science, it is a pagan religion.
Want common sense on global climate change? Go to Roy Spencer’s website. Dr. Spencer is a legit Ph.D. climatologist and a former NASA scientist. He puts forth one of the most common sense explanations of climate change that I have seen. Find it here.
But I’m an elitist – what do I know?
