As global-warming alarmists become increasingly deranged in their attacks on experts and critics who reject their controversial and increasingly discredited theory, at least one of the world’s leading climate scientists has finally had enough. Dr. Roy Spencer (shown), who served as senior scientist for climate studies at NASA, published a scathing rebuke of the alarmists and their “extremist” rhetoric.
Referring to the alarmists as “global warming Nazis,” Dr. Spencer warned that their “pseudo-scientific ramblings” and support for fascist-style “radical policies” literally threaten the lives of millions of people — especially the poor.
What appears to have set off Spencer — a Ph.D. in meteorology and principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville — are the ever-more vicious and absurd tactics of extreme global-warming theorists.
In a February 20 piece on his website headlined “Time to push back against the global warming Nazis,” the climate expert notes that “somebody” pushed his button. “When politicians and scientists started calling people like me ‘deniers,’ they crossed the line,” he wrote.
As countless other experts, scientists, and analysts have also noted, Spencer said that the warmists were trying to equate skeptics of global warming theories — those who do not see climate change as man-made or a serious problem — with those who deny that Hitler’s National Socialist (Nazi) regime exterminated millions of Jews.
“Too many of us for too long have ignored the repulsive, extremist nature of the comparison,” Spencer wrote. “It’s time to push back.”
In response, Spencer said, he is going to start calling them “global warming Nazis.” There are very good reason for the comparison, too, he added.
“The pseudo-scientific ramblings by their leaders have falsely warned of mass starvation, ecological collapse, agricultural collapse, overpopulation ... all so that the masses would support their radical policies,” he said. “Policies that would not voluntarily be supported by a majority of freedom-loving people.”
