Enviro-Nut: Climate Change Deniers Should be Tattooed or Forced to Buy Land


I’ve never heard of Richard Glover before today, not that I recall anyway. But I really don’t like the guy. His article in The Sydney Morning Herald calls for climate change deniers to be tattooed so they can be scolded by their grandchildren someday. He realized that such a plan is just a bit too reminiscent of the Nazis, so he came up with a plan B for those of us not subscribing to the religion of global warming – force us to buy island property, and then drown!

On second thoughts, maybe the tattooing along the arm is a bit Nazi-creepy. So how about they are forced to buy property on low-lying islands, the sort of property that will become worthless with a few more centimetres of ocean rise, so they are bankrupted by their own bloody-mindedness? Or what about their signed agreement to stand, in the year 2040, lashed to a pole at a certain point in the shallows off Manly? If they are right and the world is cooling – ”climate change stopped in the year 1998” is one of their more boneheaded beliefs – their mouths will be above water. If not …

He goes on, and on, about how the left is right but has been wrong about things in the past. So the right must be wrong and it’s about time we own up to reality. As I write this, in the month of June, I’m thinking about turning on the heat because it’s so chilly.

As far as worrying about my children and grandchildren – I’m a bit more worried about the communist occupying the White House and the massive debt he’s piling onto the shoulders of my children than I am about some unproven theory and computer models manipulated by folks who have much to gain by hyping climate change. Glover can take his climate tax and, well, you know.
