Climate Deniers – Worse Than Holocaust Deniers

Hamilton: Denying the coming climate holocaust
by Clive Hamilton
Climate sceptics resent being called deniers because of the odium associated with Holocaust revisionism.

Even critics of the sceptics are careful to distance themselves from the implication that they are comparing climate denialism with Holocaust denialism for fear of being seen to trivialise the Holocaust by suggesting some sort of moral equivalence.

Judgments about moral equivalence depend on the ethical standpoint one adopts.

For consequentialists the morality of an action is judged by its outcomes. For those who adopt this ethical standpoint, any assessment of the consequences of the two forms of truth-rejection would conclude that climate deniers deserve greater moral censure than Holocaust deniers because their activities are more dangerous.

    I’m proud to be called a Denier. I consider it a compliment.

    Come and get me you fascist global warming scums. But be prepared, I won’t go easily to your concentration camps.

    And so it begins. I would equate this with shouting “fire” in a theater. I wonder how long a free society can endure with the likes of this person.

    Holocaust revisionists are dangerous because of the threat of another genocide is more apt to present itself. A skeptic is more dangerous than that?

    Hamilton’s statement is nothing more than a veiled call to violence against skeptics, a call for the restriction of free speech, and worse, free thought. (Which is why I keep one in the chamber at all times.)

    • Baa Humbug says:

      The article is 18 months old. I doubt Hamilton would express the same views today. he was roundly criticised at the time.

      • suyts says:

        Thanks, you’re probably right, he probably wouldn’t express the thought in that manner again. But anyone that would in the first place……..

  3. PhilJourdan says:

    Do not let Tony see this! It might give him ideas (like a broader range of experience?)

  4. Al Gored says:

    Yes. I apparently deny the existence of the climate.

  5. Al Gored says:

    Let’s look at it the other way.

    Who is really more dangerous to the well being of the average person?

    If people really cared about their children, they wouldn’t be so eager to turn them into impoverished brainwashed serfs. Makes more sense in the UK, where they have a tradition of serfdom and kowtowing to inbred idiots, but not here.

  6. Andy Weiss says:

    It was only a couple months ago when this idiot from the Washington Post was advocating building backyard bunkers and stockpiling firearms for the upcoming climate crisis. There is a genuinely dangerous lunatic fringe to this warmist movement, which is getting increasingly frustrated and desperate.

  7. John Silver says:

    It seems they have been ordered to use the word “censure”.
    I guess we will see a lot more of it.

  8. Amino Acids in Meteorites says:

    So anyone that doesn’t believe the political delusions going on in this mans head is a the one denying reality?

  9. Jimbo says:

    I do not deny climate. I do not deny that the climate changes. I do not deny that co2 is a greenhouse gas. I do deny that man-made co2 was responsible for most the the recent warming (which has now turned to cooling).
