Those of us who have constrained visions and use real science rather than ideology and politics to decide what environmental policies to support (or reject) are dubbed “deniers”—in the case of attempts to blame people for and manipulate world climate. So, I call them “warmers” or “warmists.” Some observers call them “cultists.”
Columnist Cal Thomas defines the term: “Regardless of evidence contradicting their beliefs, cultists persist in blind faith.” Blinded by unfounded, irrational fears, they demand that we all drink their tainted global warming/climate change “Kool-Aid,” as Mr. Thomas calls it.
Thomas cites another (of many) source that fortifies the “deniers” views: “The Real Global Warming Disaster” by Christopher Booker, a reporter with the London Daily Telegraph. With growing evidence that questions the warmists’ politically-induced theory, warmers become more hysterical and hurl frenzied abuse on all who dare challenge the High Priests of Climate. A Washington Post editorial recently referred to us as being guilty of “nihilistic refusal” to join the Faithful in restricting our energy using activities by more federal regulation.
Booker’s work, according to Thomas, refers to Steve Goddard’s website Real Science. Goddard shows that the U. S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has manipulated data and adjusted climate records. Unreal predictor and “fabricated” models replace actual temperature data to support warmers’ exaggerations that Earth is warming more than usual.
Some other references that climate hype skeptics should follow include climatedepot.com. One of my favorite books is a real-science expose by Dr. Roy W. Spencer. His 2012 book “The Great Global Warming Blunder” has the revealing subtitle: “How mother nature fooled the world’s top climate scientists.” Dr. Spencer devastates the warmers with climate facts and his own theory of what actually causes Earth’s temperatures to warm and cool: energy from the sun and cloud cover in the Pacific Ocean.
