Hate mail of the week

I get plenty of hate mail here at WUWT. Marc Morano at Climate Depot gets more than I do, and shared this with me. It’s fairly typical for climate alarmists and leftists to resort to such smearing, because they really don’t have anything else.

Here’s a real gem. Warning – graphic language. Note, the email address is left in because he threatens to “make a new email” if he’s blocked, so I have no privacy concerns about this cowardly jerk as the email address is likely faked to begin with.

Hi Steve, Thanks for you service to the country.

Here’s my letter to B. Clark.

Dear B. Clark
You seem to be a hateful self loathing Grinch that does not have a happy moment, living in your dream, wishing that the world is going to end, just to prove your right. I suggest you go out and buy a nice Christmas tree and invite some Army and Navy vets over for a nice Turkey feast. Watch YouTube videos of the night Trump became President and ended the Globalist dream of Carbon Tax paradise, they are beautiful binge watching. Be careful your Liberal brain doesn’t explode .

Messaging you to let you know how much of a horrible person I believe you to be. The warmist propaganda you spread is horrifying. Their is no global warming catastrophe, except in hell. In fact I will pray every day you have a long normal life so you can realize just what a fool you have been. Go kiss your mother, it must be hard on her dealing with a Climate nut and a liberal both conditions can make you certifiably insane.

I was taught in elementary school that Greenland was so named so as to fool settlers into moving there, whereas Iceland was so named so as to discourage settlers. That was in the ’60s – well before CAGW.

Actually, much of coastal Greenland was quite green around the 10th century and for years thereafter. It was sold as green to attract sheepherders and farmers; I can’t remember what plant crops were grown there, but some were; and sheep and goats were raised there for well over a century. It was only when the Medieval Warm Period had run its course, and ice returned to the coasts, that the sheep farms were abandoned and the farmers moved back to warmer climes.

I understood the name “Iceland” when my Icelandic relatives visited. They wanted to go to Vancouver Island and pronounced the normally-silent “s” so that it sounded like “Vancouver Iceland.” The country’s name just means “Island” – and they still pronounce the “s”.

No.

“Island” means “Iceland”, norse “is” = ice

In Norse (and modern Icelandic) island is “ey” plural “eyar” like in “Vestmannaeyar” =”Westman Islands”.

Your Icelandic relatives are just a bit shaky on english pronounciation.

Reply to  boffin77
December 10, 2018 4:23 pm

“The country’s name just means “Island” – and they still pronounce the “s”.”

That’s incorrect. The name of the country (and island) is certainly “Island” in Scandinavian languages. It would be pronounced approximately like “ease lahnn” in English. However, it means “ice-land”; not “island”. The name certainly alludes to the glaciers that more than a tenth of the island is covered by. In Icelandic the name has an accent on the i (Í). In the Nordic (expect the Finno-Ugric) languages, “island” is spelt ø, ö, øy or ey (similar to English isle).

Not far from were I live, on the peninsula (“half-island”) (and in the municipality of) Frosta, there’s a farm named Island…

And “Frosta” doesn’t have anything to with “frost”; it means “ridge”. Other places on Frosta you find the Rygg and Kvamman farms, which happen to also mean “ridge” (although Kvamman is plural).

Frosta borders the village and former municipality of Åsen to the east. The indeterminate form of “åsen” is “ås”, which means… you guessed it; “ridge”!

Complictated stuff indeed, and that’s part of what makes it so interesting.

[The mods note that you must ascen de ridge to cross the frost line of the farm island . .mod]

nottoobrite: I don’t think “warmists” will be able to do that. It might be that real arithmetic (2+2=4) is too deep a subject for them, if 2+2= anything they want (results justify the means?). They might also not have a big enough sense of time. To me, a century is only about weather, a millennium is the minimum for discussing climate.

Reddit subs can of course ban you for “wrong think”. Happened to me about 20 times so far and I wasn’t even trying. The science forums do the same if the questions you ask are leading readers down an unacceptable path. And don’t even try to get me started on wikishitty!
Global Warming baiting on Reddit can be funny if you have an evening to spare. Takes nearly no effort to get one of the paid operatives engaging with you and repeating word for word the script from last year. Interestingly the massive virtually instant downvotes often reverse if left for a week or so. Their downvoting bots don’t keep track for more than a day or 2 after the thread ends. You can therefore get useful visibility for well made points.

The only way to win with these whackos is to be more whacko than they are… the difference being that we can turn it off and resume our sane and happy lives, whereas they are stuck in their sad angry little lives, sucking the CAGW teat to bolster their humanity-hating beliefs.

That’s actually a really good idea. If Brendan Clark doesn’t email his hate-missives each and every day, email him back and remind him that he’s slacking. Be sure to remind him that he *promised* to email each and every day until he assumed room temperature, and his failure to do so is indicative of someone who is a failure at life because he’s a failure at following through on all the small things that make up life, such as firing off stupidity-filled screedmail each and every day to those who subscribe to reality, as he’d promised.

At the bottom of each email sent to him, include some inconvenient fact which utterly decimates his religious belief in the CAGW scam.

He’ll be begging for mercy in no time. If there’s one thing libtards can’t stand, it’s having their insanity impeded upon by reality. Having *invited* same would quickly drive Brendan Clark over the edge.

It’s time to stop treating these brain-damaged kooks with kid gloves. Target them, force them to face their insanity, and if they fail to rectify their errant thinking, use facts, reality and indefatigable determination to turn their brains to mush.

I used to be a Usenet troll… and I miss making Klimate Katastrophe Kooks so perturbed that they mash their keyboards randomly before hitting the ‘Send’ button because they don’t have a cogent reply, so flustered that they compose song lyrics as tribute to their intellectual superior, so driven insane that they find themselves utterly unable to write complete sentences, so impotently angry that they spend literally days straight awake and raping Google for some hint of the identity of the person shoving reality down their slack-jawed pieholes. We need to start doing that to these kooks.

There are a limited number of these e-freaks so getting them to communicate profusely with a computer chip is a useful thing for society. In the computer security arena there are things called sandboxes and honeypots where the children are ring-fenced and play to their hearts content.

My friend Dr. Tim Ball has received many death threats, probably because he lives on Canada’s loony Left Coast. It seems that the climate lemmings run West, and build up in Vancouver before dropping into the Pacific.

I only ever received one threat, in 2002, after I wrote the first article in the National Post that slammed the imbecilic Kyoto Accord. I concluded that our Prime Minister Jean Chretien (aka Jean Poutine) should scrap this expensive folly and instead buy every Canadian a Honda Accord – that would be much cheaper and more sensible.

I received an angry, threatening email from a guy who held me personally responsible for the flooding of the Prague. Little old me! Flooded Prague! Who knew?

I replied: “Dear Sir, you are entirely correct. I am The One fully responsible for the flooding of Prague. Now “frack off” or I’ll do it again.”

But I only ever received one threat. That bothered me for a time. I mean, had I not spoken out enough against global warming idiocy? Had I not published enough articles slamming this nonsense?

That’s theoretically true in pretty much every state. The problem is when biased police frisk and disarm the likely victims of violence — but not their opponents — and then stand down. This has already happened twice in Berkeley and once in Portland, all three times ordered by the mayors; and courts have refused to hold the mayor or police liable. So in effect, both cities are now no-go zones until and unless the people rise up en masse and fight and defeat the police (fat chance).

I think it was Michael Crichton who posited that humans have a long history of religious belief, and with the decreasing popularity of mainstream religions people still need some kind of religion to fill the gap. Enter climate catastrophism, the idea of an Eden before the industrial revolution and/or farming, etc. to fill the gap. Of course, this is a pseudo-religion, lacking the fulfillment of a more legitimate religion.

As a life-long atheist (I am now in my 70s) and believer in science and the primacy of evidence, for me religion, ozone ‘hole’ caused by CFCs, alien visitation, faith healing (other than psychological) and, of course, cAGW/ACC are without any scientific evidence. Until such evidence is produced I will remain sceptical.

I’m not offended by religious rants – almost all religions do that. It’s when they try to foist it on others that they act like cAGW believers and can cause untold horror.

This writers IQ is too low to make a debatable argument in favor of you re-evaluating your actions, that they find offensive. They find those actions “offensive”, because of a “belief” structure that they cannot effectively describe because they don’t fully understand it. They just trust others who generate “fear”, more than they trust someone that outputs “logic”. And as many have pointed out “logic”, seems to be beyond the scope of their thought process. Rage has become the highest priority thread, in their system, and it is blocking the “rationality thread” from executing.
I have pity for people like this. They derive temporary satisfaction from venting on others. It is a lonely life, that ends sooner than most, in a place not of their choosing. And are not missed when they are gone.

I worked as a cop in Glasgow. Our everyday dialogue was unrepeatable on here.

This moron has no imagination whatsoever. As Einstein said (I believe) “I have been dead for millions of years and it has done me no harm whatsoever.”

Humanity exists in the blink of a celestial eye. To imagine we could do any meaningful damage, or good, to this planet is just hedonistic narcissism.

We will all be gone before the planets eyelid is lifted; believing we make a difference during it’s blink is simply clinging onto the desire for life in the face of certain death, which is humanities normal state.

Death is nothing more than a state of change and change brings with it, opportunity.

I have no fear of climate change, population growth or alien invasions. It’s simply change, and we have no control.

The idiot who wrote that email is frightened of death and seeks to project his fear.

Sad little Noollaberob*.

*We got so bored with profane language when I was a cop we were forced to concoct insults for a giggle. This is one of the few repeatable ones. ~hint~ read it backwards, the first word has 4 letters.

PS. A relative of mine was a Commander in the Royal Navy. They were so fed up with profanity (as were their wives following a deployment) they substituted ‘Harry’ for the eff word. Makes everyday expressions interesting. One wife was alleged to have squealed excitedly one evening “For Harry’s sake Harry me darling” ~Ahem~

He taught us about homeostasis and how the earth adjusts itself and compensates for whatever happens to it. He then told us about the wagon trails and the paths that we create in the woods and then told us in 18 months, if no one uses them, they are back to normal.

Later he went on a rant about mankind’s footprint all over the place and how “evil” we were–with our developments and such–I raised my hand and said something like, “Well, you told us a out homeostatic and in 18 months it isn’t going to matter, so why are you upset?” I never understood why he got so angry with me.

Obviously they don’t teach “love your enemies” in his religion!

There is wonderful climate allegory in that Christian admonition to love your enemies and to pray for those who persecute you:

“He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous*.

There is probably a lesson in those old words for all of us in the strange chaos of this post-modern world.

And so from Luke: (I did have to look these up!)

“But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.**”

I’m not religious, I just like Comparative Mythology if anybody wondered! The Upanishads are a great read too! 😉

I won’t claim that some skeptics aren’t seduced by the ‘Dark Side.’ It takes great restraint not to respond in kind. When I leave detailed, factual comments to Yahoo ‘news’ articles, I have come to expect to receive insulting, emotional responses that are not responsive to my facts. They are simply the kind of name calling that was typical in elementary school, most commonly, “denier.” They behave as though they believe that they have a license to insult based on their moral and intellectual superiority. In a word, they are insufferable.

Incidentally, one of the things that I respect about you, is that even though often criticized by me and others, you respond civilly and, generally, factually. Although, we may disagree on the ‘facts.’

2cd: 2.
1st: When I had my first my hubby bought me a 2 carat diamond ring, see (holds hand out).
2cd: That’s nice.
1st: When I had my second my hubby bought me a fur coat, ankle length.
2cd: That’s nice.
1st: When I have this one my hubby is buying me a red sports car.
2cd: That’s nice.
1st: What did your husband get you for your first baby?
2cd: A book on etiquette and manners.
1st: Whatever for?
2cd: That way when someone annoys me instead of telling them to go F* themselves I just look at them and say “That’s nice”.

Maybe Mr Moranno and Watts could have an auto reply of “That’s nice” to all their hate mail?

I’ve contended before that the non-science-literate believers in warming worries who vehemently attack sceptics, suffer from a mass neurosis of some kind. Some of the galloping warmer proponents are also sufferers – recall an epidemic of the “Climate Blues” among climate scientists occasioned by the “Dreaded Pause ^тм” that terminated their careers (Oh they rationalized a different reason, of course – a symptom of really being in D*nile).

I wonder if indoctrination in education that the left instituted starting about 40 yrs ago to make people easier to control and direct toward neo -marxyness, including making them feel guilty and self loathing as a virus ruining the planet might have been the cause.

Of course on the sceptical side , we too have nonthinking contrarians that neutralize our side of the debate and these are red herring served up by our opponents who brand all of us this way.

In the last 6 years of being quite active in several online areas (yes, I am retired, got to have a hobby!) I have “collected” nearly 100 personally directed death threats. It used to be that the biggest number came from the cryptocurrency shillers and scammers but in the last 2 years this switched and now the global warming ones are winning by a mile.
My current tactic is to invite them round for tea, cakes and a chat. None appear to have taken up my offfer to date. Do you think they are scared? My wife’s cakes are actually quite nice.
When I told our gardener about the death threats he immediately said that when people react like that it is confirmation you are right and they are wrong and they know it. He knew nothing about the arguments for/against when he said it.
I have recently joined a couple of new clubs (IRL not online). Only last week one of the guys started talking about his fantastic investment in solar panels and the evils of CO2. I’m keeping quiet for a bit and letting him run with the line before reeling him in. Should be quite amusing as my first yank on the rod will be at the Xmas lunch party. WooHoo!

If he hasn’t, then he doesn’t understand the problem. It’s not skeptics who are producing more CO2, it is China and India. They should be your focus if you believe CO2 is going to destroy our world.

Not much to wonder about. Seeing as they aren’t “white”, they can presumably do whatever they want.

Standard practice among climate activists is to make ad hom remarks. Seems likely they have been briefed on how to do this by the NGOs, because they are all very similar. Plus, they usually don’t understand the subject anyway, their heads are full of meaningless propaganda soundbites.

Part of this is no doubt due to the fact that the bulk of them are… how to put it delicately… bottom-feeding pig-ignorant alcoholic drug-abusing swine. To them, that effword is no big deal and used as liberally as we might use “the” or “and”. Their neglected unloved kids learn it at their mother’s breast while she blows tobacco and other smokes in their faces and jabbers to her imbecilic friends on the cel phone. You probably have at least a few families like them nearby, and if you don’t, you’ve won life’s lottery.

I try to report the facts, to the best of my ability. We have published the following conclusions since 2002.

When the West finally wakes up, there will be an enormous backlash against the Greens, who are not only sabotaging our economies but are causing enormous harm to the world’s poor through deliberate energy starvation – and their past crimes such as the war on DDT that also caused tens of millions of deaths, mostly children under 5 years of age.

The Greens are the great killers of our age, rivalling the death tolls of the great killers of the 20th Century.

[excerpt]

We knew that the Mann hockey stick (MBH98 etc.) was false when it was published, because it contradicted the historical climate record, eliminating both the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age, in order to bolster global warming alarmism and promote costly, ineffective and destructive green energy schemes.

Environmental harm from these green energy schemes included accelerated draining of the vital Ogalalla Aquifer for corn ethanol production in the USA and clear-cutting of the rainforests in South America and Southeast Asia to grow biofuels. These actions continue to cause huge environmental damage.

Energy costs have been sharply increased, vital electrical grids have been destabilized, and Excess Winter Deaths have increased.

Based on the evidence, including the Mann hokey stick and the Climategate emails, global warming and green energy are the greatest scams, in dollar terms, in the history of humanity. Many trillions of dollars of scarce global resources have been squandered on global warming/green energy falsehoods.

A fraction of these wasted trillions could have put safe water and sanitation systems into every village on Earth, and run them forever. About two million kids below the age of five die from contaminated water every year – over sixty million dead kids from bad water alone since the advent of global warming alarmism.

The remaining squandered funds, properly deployed, could have gone a long way to ending malaria and world hunger.

Told you so, years ago.

Regards, Allan
