Forbes writer wants climate chance deniers relocated beneath the waves
OVER on Forbes.com, Steve Zwick says people who question climate change science are like jailed drugs addicts who will one day see the error of their ways. He says the “denial machine” is very well funded. Although, so is Al Gore. The money on each side of the debate is more even than he admits.
He then makes a threat:
What’s also there is a very public record of who has been lying to the public and who hasn’t – and it’s time to start using this information to make the liars and shirkers pay. Let’s take a page from those Tennessee firemen we heard about a few times last year – the ones who stood idly by as houses burned to the ground because their owners had refused to pay a measly $75 fee.
We can apply this same logic to climate change.
We know who the active denialists are – not the people who buy the lies, mind you, but the people who create the lies. Let’s start keeping track of them now, and when the famines come, let’s make them pay. Let’s let their houses burn until the innocent are rescued. Let’s swap their safe land for submerged islands. Let’s force them to bear the cost of rising food prices.
Let their houses burn and relocate them to places below the waves?
They broke the climate. Why should the rest of us have to pay for it?
So. They control the climate? In which case, they are bloody powerful. Think on, Steve, lest a tornado take you and yours in its powerful grip.
Note: Steve answers a reader on his electronic forum (crank up those hamster wheels):
I can’t speak for everyone, but I ride a bike to work or take public transportation and offset my flights and electric — and am not suffering for it. The cost of offsetting is just not that high.
So. He flies by jet and then blames oil companies for providing the fuel to make his trip possible?
Stick that in your pipe and smoke it…
