Steve Andrew dared to tickle the dragon’s tail and now he is paying for it. The dragon in this case, is Climate Denialists in the Right Wing Media.
Andrew posted something about the recent, very alarming news that global warming seems to be cutting back significantly on the supply of oceanic plankton. The worst case scenario of this sort of process is, actually, mass extinction and everybody dies. There are less severe scenarios as well, but none of them are very much fun.
So yes, even as the climate chickens come home to roost, the denailists can’t keep their bought and paid for (by the energy companies, mainly) mouths shut, and are busy all across the intertubes, blogging, sockpupetting, and generally grand standing about how there really is no problem and we should all just go home and close our windows and lock our doors.
But yes, there is a problem, and our knowledge and recognition of this problem has deep historical roots. The time is long overdue for the denialists to stop denying and start thinking, and get on with helping rather than standing in the way.
You can read about the attack on Steve Andrew here. This particular case has an increasingly common twist: The frustration expressed by the writer is being compared, roughly, to Adolph Hitler ordering the Death Camps, or something along those lines, in an effort to distract from the plain fact that the denialist are not only wrong, but harmful, hateful, and cynical of humanity. This is ironic given the ready tendency these days for right wing yahoos to call for the death of their opponents, often extolling their zombie-like teabagging followers to simply shoot them. And stuff like that.
All I can say to these right wingers who put their graft above the health of the planet: Get a job, morans!
