Where I get hate mail from an unhinged eco-warrior

People send me stuff, sometimes it’s irrational hate mail from snowflakes…like this one.

Per our WUWT policy on such things, anonymity is not guaranteed, though it probably a fake email address anyway. And I thought Tripp Funderburk was over the top!

Anonymity is not guaranteed on this blog. Posters that use a government or publicly funded IP address that assume false identities for the purpose of hiding their source of opinion while on the taxpayers dime get preferential treatment for full disclosure, ditto for people that make threats.

I’d say there’s a threat in this comment, wouldn’t you?

If you want to make me Target#1, well then you go right ahead. Though I doubt people like yourself, who hide behind obfuscated emails and handles, have any real capability beyond doing anything beyond email rants sent from their mom’s basement.

And the left wonders why nobody is taking them seriously anymore when it comes to global warming aka climate change.

As always, so sorry Anthony to read this kind of foolish vitriol, especially on Easter Day.

You’ve given it more attention that it deserves.

The rest of us know the truth, and we keep the faith.

Felix. Good point. Your name brought to mind Felix Mendelssohn. And that brought to mind this:

“The Gift of Music” by Theocracy

Brought to you by one of the “old fat conservative white guys” who likes to hang out around this place.

#(:))

lolololol

Seriously.

To Scorpion,

You obviously struggle, given the verbal abilities you were born with, to express yourself.

Try music.

The melodies will give you wings to fly above creation
whenever you can’t find the words to say.

Better yet, try love.
It is a force far more powerful than hate.
Start with loving yourself.
Then, you will start to love truth — for truth will set you free.

With love from the One who as he hung dying on a cross said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!

Christ is RISEN!!! 🙂

Dear Mr. Arrak,

I’m glad you enjoyed the tune. Yes, not likely, but, worth a try….

You are correct (and I’m not surprised, for you WUWT science giants have demonstrated exceptional intelligence over the years). Three of my four majors were non-technical. According to the “interest inventory” test we high school seniors all took, I should have majored in one of the arts. I didn’t. I hated school and just wanted a degree that would enable me to make a decent living. LOL. I should have majored in an art!

I care deeply about freedom. That is why I am here. I enjoy the mental gymnastics (for me, given my lack of science ed.), but, I work to learn about CO2 science for one purpose only: to make sure the envirostalinists and enviroprofiteers are DEFEATED in their vile human CO2 schemes which cause widespread poverty and disease and generally put vice-grips on our pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness.

I found WUWT via Mark Steyn’s site — he wrote about and linked to WUWT in early 2013.

After John F. Hultquist’s (and others’) warm welcome that April: I was hooked! 🙂

Thank you for taking the time (as so many fine, bright, engineers and scientists do here) to keep WUWT the high-level science forum and super-peer review opportunity it is!

Your admirer and ally for science truth,

Janice

P.S. Thank you for your kind Easter greetings! The atheist across the street roared around his lawn on his riding mower this morning and is at this moment blasting away with his pressure washer to tell the world what he thinks of the day — poor guy. (and I will be praying that you can, someday, even if still a “Darwinist,” at least not be one with ALL that implies … 🙂 ).

Amen, Janice.

And, Arno, God made things very easy for us. (What rescuer makes it hard for those they’re trying to save?)
Romans 10:9 doesn’t mention a belief for or against Darwin.
After accepting Romans 10:9, all our past, present, future sin died on the cross with Him and remained there when we were raised with Him.
Any “feeling” of separation from God” after that is “all in our heads”. That’s what the rest of the verses are about. Once one is “born again”, we still have the same “heads” we had before. What do we put in them? More importantly, what do we allow into our hearts.
There’s a day coming when “we’ll know even as we are known”.
We’ll know for sure that all of our “Why did I do that”, “Why did I think that”, What’s wrong with that”, “How could I have been so stupid” moments, truly are dead through no effort of our own.

WoW! You say embarrassing things! I am for freedom too. As it happened. I got separated from my folks during the war and was able to get to the West while my two brothers and parents got stuck under the Soviet regime. One of my brothers was shipped off to to a Gulag and did not get out until Stalin died. Things are better for them now and I visit them even though I live here. They sure can appreciate the freedom they gained when the Soviet Union died. When the war was over I inveigled myself a scholarship, went to college here, married, and settled down.Had a fairly decent science job with the Apollo Lunar Lander module at Grumman until Nixon got elected. He hated everything about JFK and ordered the last three LEMs cancelled because Kennedy had started the program. Turned out he still blamed vJFK for stealing the 1960 election by stuffing ballot boxes in Chicago. Grumman already had the personnel hired but they were told to dump them. As a result, Grumman layed off ten thousand people in January 1970, I among them. That’s when I started teaching science and pretty soon retired. What science I do now is simply my retirement hobby. But But doing science is learning, in a way a child learns about its environment by being immersed in it. You are likely to learn things you had no idea of and react to them at times. Which means innovation, among other things. There vis more of course butI don’t want to get technical. If you want my technical stuff, put my name into the Google Scholar. They busied themselves getting together my titles, all the way back to the fifties. All the best, Arno

Thank you, Mr. Arrak, for that thoughtful reply. No, no, not “embarrassing,” simply the wonderful truth. Just stand up straight and — smile. 🙂 “Wow,” is what describes your life. I love freedom; you deeply appreciate its worth. I’m so sorry about your parents and especially about your brother. That was horrible.

Losing that supercool job in 1970 was so disappointing for you. God had a different path. That was very hard to accept. Applied science lost a fine scientist, but, teaching gained an exceptionally knowledgeable teacher. I sure hope that many of your students have told you so.

I’m glad you keep on enjoying science as a “hobby.” Your list of articles is impressive. Your Arctic Warming is Not Greenhouse Warming looks TRULY robust, with keen insights based on observations and solid reasoning.

Such a pleasure to “talk” with you.

And I WILL be praying for you — Александр Солженицын came out of the Gulag a believer…. 🙂

God has not given up on you. He has been waiting and watching for a long time. The door is still open.

IYou do appreciate my global warming job but warmists do not. You will not find any reference to it in any alarmist lexicon because it totally demolishes their view of the Arctic warming. Result is that those of their people who write about the Arctic still babble on about carbon dioxide and are wedded to the greenhouse theory of Arctic warming. This despite the fact that the warming proceeds twice as fast as their calculations permit and they simply don’t know why.. The article almost did not get written because I had already worked it out and was putting several pages into the “Arctic and Antarctic” section of the book. One of the things I predicted was that warm water carried into the Arctic Ocean was doing the warming. The book went to press and simultaneously a paper by Spielhagen et al. appeared in which they observed just such transfer of warm water I had predicted. They had taken an Arctic cruise and directly measured water temperature from the ship. This was too good for me not to use it but it was too late for the book. As a result. I opted for writing a journal article. That turned out to be a bigger job than I had expected because I had to fill in important background material. On top of that I exceeded the 6000 word limit the journal allowed and had to rewrite much of it. In the end I am glad I did because it ended up with much more useful information than I had initially planned. It has even attracted a fabulous readership — one or two people a year according Academia.edu!

Janice, why did you have to spell Solzhenitsin in Cyrillic? He is known by his Latin spelling evrywhere but in Russia. I did not say this before, but it so happens that he was incarcerated in the same Gulag as was my brother Henno.. Henno got to know him and says his conversations with Solzhenitsin were the one bright spot he had during this time there. Later, when it was all over and Estonia was free again, I visited them and tried to get more information. But he just did not want to talk about anything related to the Gulag, oeriod. And he recently passed away so nobody will know what was said then.

I suspect that this hate mail was a response to one of his comments being deleted on a recent post. It was was deleted without explanation. The explanation, as I recall, was for language and attitude such as exhibited in this hate mail.
There was also an encouragement to “tone it down” and re-comment.
Seems he/she/it chose to send an email instead.
(But maybe my suspicion is wrong.)

People can complain to a range of legal entities about offensive or abusive behavior in text or public contexts and I think they [we] should, to remind losers like this one how to behave online. Society must aim to strike a balance between two valued rights: the right to communicate freely and the right to live free from vilification. It beats me how, why, these nuts keep going, we are on the verge of extinction from nuclear war, between the USA and North Korea (and China), yet they rant and vent on about this catastrophic [no] rise in temperature.

That’s not us–we’re better than that.
Notice that ol’ Harish is quite the master-of-war, geo-political, “big-thinker” strategist: civil-war, Russkies and the Trumpers vs. the “fifth column” American left in cahoots with Japan, China, the EU, and India! Hmm…I wonder if Harish might–just “might” is all I’m sayin’–“get off” on these sort of day-dreamy, wanker-assist fantasies–and not in a way that his mummy would approve, I mean. For more, in the same vein, but less amusing, one might Google: “youtube larry grathwohl william ayers 60 minutes.”

Where I work, we have a constant turn over of such people because somehow even basic common sense seems to have be either killed off or disabled.

The left, to the extent that it thinks at all, thinks only in stereotypes. It’s almost as if it’s impossible for them to imagine people as individuals. I guess that’s how they justify to themselves their desire to exterminate all who oppose them. To the leftists, those who oppose them aren’t really human.

PS: Another fascinating thing is it’s belief that only the US opposes it’s cult, and that all by itself, the US is forcing all other countries to abandon the cult as well.

“Racist, ageist, sexist and fatist. I though the “liberal” left hated all those things. ”

Nope, the only thing the Left cares about is POWER. Everything else is mere slurs they use against those standing in the way of their insatiable quest for POWER. Hence, the Left have sold out those who previously gave them POWER (gays, women, Jews, poor blacks, Christian hispanics) in favor of new fast-breeding groups who always want more government, no liberties, more handouts and are a route to give the Left more POWER.

Once you understand that then the Left are seen to be on a consistent course – because they only thing the Left truly cares about is POWER. And once they have POWER they need to change society to they get even more POWER, which is why they work to not only control every aspect of your life, they now work to control what you can say and think. Power (the ability to impose one’s will on others) is more addictive than heroin – which is why the Left will never be content, will never give up, and will use any devious and immoral means to get their fix.

Unfortunately, that is not the case. The brilliant – genius – liberal people whom I count as friends are adamant in favor of Global Warming. I think it is a case of information bias…they never actually hear any other side to the argument.
We should not fall into the error of bad characterization of people who disagree with us, or we bring ourselves closer to the ranters we critique.

I’m going to have to repectfully disagree. In my experience liberals / progressives / greens may be “well” educated, i.e. equipped with numerous college degrees, but they are as a group incapable of rational thought. Their mental activites are dominated by emotional responses to immediate stimulae in the form of headlines and sound bites. They are incapable of absorbing facts, and completely unwilling to examine and refute contrary opinions, but resort immediately to name calling, or change the subject to avoid having to admit that they have no facts to substantiate their position.

What’s more, every liberal I know is completely amoral and quite content to flaunt every law and convention of society while at the same time trying to use those same rules to constrain those they oppose.

We’re supposed to abhor generalizations, but this experience has been universal in my case. I have the pleasure of living and working in the northeastern U.S., a liberal bastion, and I have had no shortage of test cases. I eagerly await the day when I can have a debate with any self styled liberal that doesn’t degenerate almost instantly into name calling or fingerpointing.

Jimmy,

You may be closer to the truth than you realize. I would say that two things that characterize this individual is that he does not have a firm grasp on reality and thinks that his opinion is above reproach by those he dislikes. He insults the readers of this blog, apparently thinking that we will be so injured by his name calling that we will slink away. One of the commonly recognized characteristics of the mentally unbalanced is that they are convinced that they are sane and it is everyone else who is the problem. Tolerance isn’t in his vocabulary. He probably should be taken into custody for observation before he hurts himself or someone else.

As I like to say, only the completely insane are completely convinced of their own sanity.

And words like tolerance or rationality used to mean something, but on the tongues of Leftivists they become just another set of tribal identifiers. Instead of being based on your empathy and understanding, you’re tolerant because you express the “correct” opinions. Instead of being based on your dispassionate weighing of evidence, you’re rational because you’re in the “correct” tribe. You’re a free thinker because you think the “correct” thoughts.

The fatal contradiction is easy to see in a vacuum, but one way Leftivists get their crap past the radar in universities is by perpetuating a writ-large version of the “only sane man” delusion, which I sometimes call the siege fallacy. In their narratives, university campuses become brave little embattled islands of free thinking and tolerance in a raging ocean of bigotry, conformity, anti-science, and anti-intellectualism. “The barbarians are at the gates, we must stick together and fight the good fight for freedom!” is the implied rallying cry. And it’s a very appealing narrative, especially to the college-aged who still retain some of that adolescent rebelliousness. Few things stroke the ego like being able to think one is a valiant rebel hero fighting the evil empire. It can a lot of time and/or effort to shake that delusion and see that it was the equivalent of the Galactic Empire claiming to be the Rebel Alliance, and getting away with it.

The Himalayas are the tallest mountains on Earth, and a very wide and very deep stretch of very tall mountains as well.

And much of that mass wastage is delivered by various river systems that converge right smack in…you guessed it…Bangladesh!
And with the Indian subcontinent still driving itself underneath the Asian plate, I would not be a bit surprised to find out that Bangladesh is actually rising.

Wow…I don’t think I have ever read any kind of violent threat like that posted by a WUWT comment here. And if it was, I would sure hope it would be edited out. Nobody is advocating violence against anyone here or to anyone on the other side of the fence. This is a battle of ideas and scientific truth, not some guerrilla war.

The worst I have done here on WUWT is advocate Congress to investigate Dr. Mann for a possible act of terrorism, in his statements about ‘burning cattle alive’ in his opening remarks to Congress a few weeks back on the scientific method, and generally shouting fire in a crowded theater about his unscientific pronouncements that would cost the planet trillions of dollar.

It is not just the Climate Debate that gets “results” like this. Pops up all the time in many different blogs and reddit subs which I frequent. Death threats to me via private messages are now in double digits. So far no phone calls or hate mail but many years ago I did have my house vandalised by “Animal Rights” group simply as a result of holding some shares in a particular company. Interestingly it has always been left wing groups that have resorted to this kind of behaviour.
Even in personal discussion with those of the left I find that although I stay polite they can (with the right topic) very quickly lapse into the “You are a shithead” “Fuck you” type of conversation. The only exception seems to be those who are over 55 years old where it seems possible to have a good-natured discussion even when we are clearly a long way apart. I suspect the change has been due to something in the educational system and/or a general decline in politeness and personal respect in society.
I keep records of all those acting aggressively and often advise them that I am doing so. It is of course quite easy to simply ignore them if it’s an online exchange. Only in one case, where there was a personal confrontation/threat, have I had to resort to legal action and they disappeared after that.
With respect to moderating on line blogs or communities (I do a few myself) my policy is generally simply to delete comment and perma-ban without any engagement as I have found if you converse with them at all they simply come back with another alias. With no oxygen for them in any particular community they will give up after 2 or 3 attempts max and (presumably) go somewhere else.

Ya know, all that these racist, stupid folks have to do is to perform a single study with the null hypothesis that the X% observed warming in the 20th century has been caused by natural means and reject it with a reasonable degree of significance. These folks neither understand science, the scientific method, or anything else. When such a study is forthcoming, I will give their case greater consideration. Till then, it is just Lysenkoism.

I have been swimming around in the CAGW swamp for about 3 years now and I think there are several different kinds of indigenous life forms. There are those who truly do believe Global Warming is settled science and the Earth is threatened, they often seem scared the end of the world is coming. There are those who know it is a “scam” but have to keep up the pretence because their career, friends, etc depend upon it. Also there are those who are very clever and highly qualified who go out of their way to promote CAGW and attack those who don’t believe, sometimes they are very very devious with the things they say, post, etc.and it seems that they also know quite clearly it is untrue but they have an end justifies the means philosophy. It’s quite useful to try to label your opponent into one of the groups. I quite like the latter group for a good discussion and have a couple of NASA scientists on my radar right now which I am slowly reeling in. Might be lucky and get one to trip up soon, even if not all the blog chat is recorded so it’s useful for the future anyway.

That’s why they have to redefine the NULL hypothesis to something meaningless.
Stokes and Moshpit have being trying to declare that the real NULL hypothesis is zero slope.
That is, a belief that without CO2, nothing would change. Therefore if they can show that something has changed, they have proven that CO2 did it.

First, I doubt that somebody who appears to be a Sikh is actually a “Bangladeshi Farmer who is about to lose his home to sea level rise” let alone actually cares about any such.
I would think that a “poor bangladeshi” would be more concerned at the concept that fossil fuel use should be discontinued, as being more immediate.

that’s right , 1.75% of the power supply is Hydro – the rest fossil.

Sometimes, the best way that one can discredit people that have this way of expressing their extreme views is…………….expose them in front of a large audience.

They are far more counterproductive to those that hold a similar position than an intelligent skeptic armed with authentic data that contradicts the position.

To be objective(which is tough to do if you are the target of numerous attacks that take on this tone) we are only amusing ourselves by drawing attention to a ludicrous comment from a loose cannon. Yes, it seems like since Trump got elected that this sort of hateful, inflammatory mentality has permeated one side. Many of them have just had their minds captured into a cult like belief system, that thinks anybody that believes differently than themselves is the extreme. Throw in the intense hatred and lack of accountability when using a computer on the internet and you have the recipe for a growing number of people that express themselves this way.

Since this site also shows all the information that emanates from well spoken authorities who have similar views(less extreme) as this character but are able to communicate those views more professionally/intelligently, I think it is not unfair to also include something like this because it represents a mentality that exists(we probably can’t imagine the hundreds of hate mails that Anthony gets)……….even if it might magnify the political divide.

In a psychological realm, when we are subjected to unfair treatment or attacked and only we know about it, there is often more frustration than if we share it with others who see it exactly like we do. I do my best, trying not to judge other people but my wife is often the recipient of numerous stories about
other people/situations that paint an unkind picture.

She almost always sees it exactly as I do. If that was not the case, I might not be sharing so often.

On a more pleasant note: Happy Easter Anthony and to all!

At first look it seems a reasonable hypothesis to test so I think we should be fair and apply he same testing, null hypothesis, etc to this as we ask CAGW proponents to do to theirs.

If you, or anyone else, has some links to this gravity hypothesis please let me know as I am doing research on it right now.f

I have caused them to think a bit though, as it is my opinion, that the party they support is not the one they think it is these days even if it has the same name.
The same goes for the Democrats in the US, though. Under Olabama their constituency was in Euro-UN OFFSHORE NWO stuff., not US citizens who voted for them – elites yes, but not ordinary folks. The UNFCC/IPCC is not what a lot of folks think it is either. My family likes a-chicken-in every pot soshulism but this is no more. I trust (hope) your leftinesss is of the old fashion kind.

What we call “the left” or “modern liberals” or “progressives” are socialists. They will sometimes even self-identify as “cultural Marxists”. Classical Liberals were men like Thomas Jefferson and others. Too bad the socialists stole the word “liberal” and ruined it. See here for the beliefs of classical liberals: https://mises.org/library/what-classical-liberalism

The progressives (modern liberals — whatever) are a foul bunch who are so convinced that they are “saving the world” that they think anything they do is justified by the goals they have. They think they have “high moral ground” even as they attack and beat people in the street.

It is this “the ends justify the means” thinking on the part of these foul wretches that leads me to caution everyone. They can snap and do very foul deeds — so remember to be careful.

Re: Asybot at 8:24pm — Yes, I see your point. Good to bear that in mind. For the record: I am not a pen pal with Mr. Asybot; just very infrequent “Are you doing okay?” e mails. Yes, for my peace of mind vis a vis one particular, very dear, person, I needed to say that.

All the while that guy uses just as much fossil fuels as the rest of us, liberals are such hypocrites.

Speaking of Bangladesh, Dr Motl recently commented on the ManBearPig being over there where he tried to convince them to stop using and expanding use of coal and oil.
It’s worth the read.

I think the reference to the Bangladeshi farmer, is a hypothetical fictional being as no actual person or persons resembling this description, is in existence outside the vivid imagination of the unfortunate child who wrote this. I say ”unfortunate” as they don’t seem to have the benefit of an education or the privilege of good parents. I’m not making excuses for them simply suggesting a possible reason for their failure.

I think so too, I think he is a child of Indian parents now living in Australia or New Zealand as the rhetoric is similar to that in these countries, and also because he doesn’t know the geography of Bangladesh which is on a delta therefore very close to sea level. Geography does not seem to be featured in State Schools
“Bangladesh, to the east of India on the Bay of Bengal, is a South Asian country marked by lush greenery and many waterways. Its Padma (Ganges), Meghna and Jamuna rivers create fertile plains, and travel by boat is common..”
He can look this up on his iPad if his mother will let him have it after all that foul language..which he has picked up at his Australian or New Zealand school. …bringing disgrace on a respectable family.

Wow, would be hard to find more insults, abuse, rubbish and downright hatred in one article . . .must be a total lefty, all the trademarks are there. Hey, he got me on two points, older and white, not fat, I think that is slung as standard abuse because there’s an awful lot of brains and experience in life there and the Marxists know that’s a hard barrier to crack so they resort to their usual “loving, caring, inclusive” themes and words. Here in Australia we are now so surrounded by these people you can hardly speak. The main political parties are extreme left (labor) and left (conservatives) and none of them know what they are doing, we will be using generators and candles soon in the name of climate change.

Actually enjoyed this. It’s a very clear sign that rational thought and ideas are finally winning out over this child like mentality associated with the snowflakes and liberal whiners of the world. Loved the hellfire bit, must be a very good gaming snowflake, a hero in his chat room where dragonslayers, echowarriors, and captain planet do battle with the evildoers of the rational world…you know, the one’s who work and pay taxes. Keep up the good work.

It’s notable that anti-Russian racism is now being flaunted shamelessly by the left and the warmist extremists. CNN, BBC and other left wong media are increasingly overtly Russophobic in their endless diatribe. It’s logical however for these progressive types to resent Russia since the regime which is the fountainhead of modern enviromnentalism, Na3i Germany, met it’s fate at the hands of the Russians.

Hint: fascists don’t fare well in Russia. But hey – maybe with a handful of drones and some super skinny nonwhite model-lefties like Michael Moore on your side, you could try it on? With all the global warming going on you needn’t even bring any warm clothing.

The whole Russia/Trump angle is highly interesting, given the millions the Clintons took from Russia in return for the sale of US uranium assets.

These days, it’s almost as if leftists invariably accuse others of doing all the things they do themselves. It is an interesting pathology.

AP I could be wrong but I believe those assets were owned by a Canadian Mining Corp. No surprise there!

Yes, but I believe that the whole Uranium One imbroglio resulted in a $145 Million revenue transfer to the Clinton Global Initiative. That’s considered a very good day even by Secretary of State standards.

Egos that huge go into mental breakdown when it becomes clear to them that their I.Q. is room temperature level.
I have always said, after a small amount of research, this scam is an I.Q. test.
That letter is last ditch desperation.

A college education is supposed to temper this sort of extremist mind-set, but nowadays it often foments it. (I suspect this guy (or gal, mayhap) is a college grad–maybe even a college administrator!)

Progressivism is a totalitarian ideology in exactly the same way as is 1slam. It uses the same brainwashing techniques to generate inhuman and completely irrational mindsets in its victims and displays the same rabid, violent intolerance to conflicting views. It is no coincidence that the progressive left are so supportive of 1slam – just as it was no coincidence the Third Reich was so supportive of Mussolini and Emperor Hirohito. Make no mistake folks – this isn’t a difference of political opinion anymore – it is all out war. We see it every day – the progressives always react to any democratic disappointment with total violence. CAGW is simply one of their fundamental axioms but the problem runs far deeper than that.
