Holocaust denial and Climate denial

It’s about time someone wrote a serious (bahaha) journal article exploring the links between climate denial and holocaust denial.

The question at hand is, “Why is there a social counter-movement that rejects climate change?” This article begins by first naming this counter-movement “climate denial” and working through the various apparent options by specifically looking at the scholarship on Holocaust denial for insight. Through this insight, we can understand the counter-movement as a reactionary force working to sow confusion for ideological reasons that promote a specific privilege.

Couldn’t have something to do the holes in the alarmist account?

What makes some of these warmists so fond of the holocaust line? Only recently Clive Hamilton wrote a vitriolic rant about this subject.

Perhaps Richard Bean’s next project will be The Heretic 2, another “funny, provocative and heart-warming family drama” in which the maverick academic David Irving, lone defender of the truth, uncovers definitive evidence that the Holocaust never happened. Sent to Coventry by his fellow historians — a spineless lot who have for years been manipulating the evidence to protect their funding and their reputations — David is in the end vindicated; the Holocaust was a Zionist plot after all.

UPDATE:

More warmist crap, this time from Penn State ‘ethics’ professor Donald Brown. Hmmm. Isn’t Hamilton also a professor of ethics?

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    Wasn’t Peter Gleick a professor of ethics?

    Am I a denier if I think 6 million Jews were killed and not 60 million?

    The link for “Why is there a social counter-movement that rejects climate change?” goes to MIT! Seriously? – MIT? – Don’t they care about their reputation?…

    When opponents use Godwin’s Law, they have already lost the argument. In this case, warmists have nothing else to say.
