As of this post, Marc Morano, the head lunatic over at Climate Depot, and his unsavory ilk continue to refer to my labeling of climate change deniers (like themselves) being responsible for the murder of the two Dutch researchers in the Arctic as some sort of injustice (that May 4th post is below). I hesitated to write about all the fuss the deniers are making because I hate to give them any attention. They’re literally like children demanding someone take notice of them, sending me hundreds of messages and comments and peppering me with tweets.
And now, Fox News has got a hold of it, so, who knows. If you look to Morano’s website, the vast majority of the middle section of his page as of early Friday morning was about my accusation (hopefully he’ll get some fresh news to blab about soon). What gives? This buffoon has probably a few million visitors to his website each year, so why on earth would he feign a conscious and be bothered so much (along with all the others who have written and harassed me, with one of them telling me that I should come visit him and bring my own body bag) by me?
Could be two things: my daughter said that my statement that they’re responsible for the deaths in the Arctic hits a nerve because, even through all their bluster, they know that I’m right. Or at very least, there is enough of a kernel of truth that they’re ticked off. Otherwise they’d just ignore it.
Secondly, it could be that they’re using my article to whip up ratings for self promotion. Or even to attempt to appear as victims themselves, somehow. Indeed, as accountability and blame starts to commingle with the mess the deniers have left the rest of us, a la the tobacco settlement. I’m actually seeing discernible tide, even within right wing sites and media, of lame attempts at assigning blame, complete with watered down and dismissive acceptance of the climate situation. I only hope I don’t have to deal with blubbering idiots like Bill O’Reilly any time in my life. Or Hannity, or any of those liars.
The flack I’ve received the past few days is but a drop in the BUCKET compared to what they do to scientists, who are sued, threatened, harassed and brow beaten into submission. If my shouldering of any of their hatred “bought” climate scientists any kind of breather, I’m glad to have helped. I feel awful for what they endure. And it just takes up so much precious time having to defend themselves when they really have much more important work to do.
There are dozens of bozos who are actually ASKING to be put on my list of murderers so that they can feel important. Can you imagine? What kind of world is this? I’m just deleting their comments and not giving those jerks the gratification they so desire. As Dubya said, I’m the decider.
And I just looked at the clip on Fox News. At the 3:20 mark, Eric Bolling, who is on my burgeoning list of those responsible for Cornelissen and de Roo’s deaths, makes a comment about being on the list. I almost, for a split second, thought he looked ashamed about it. I dunno. It’s probably my bad eyesight fooling me. So here’s the clip from Fox News. Go to 3:20 in segment.
The thing that is crystal clear about these guys is that, when face to face with their bad behavior, they try to squirm out of it like kids caught stealing. Weak, no character at all. I’d dislike them less if they stood by their actions instead of looking so pathetic. Here is Morano being interviewed with snippets cut into the tape showing what a woman scientist feels like when she receives vicious hate mail and threats because of deniers targeting them. He sure doesn’t look like he’s proud of his behavior in this video. I’d like to see him, face to face, with some of the scientists he conveniently harasses from afar to see what his (involuntary) body language reveals. Probably won’t happen, though, since they are a bunch of cowards.
Oh well. For now, I’m just going to get away from their general ickiness and stench. Too much (productive) work to do. Onward!
