Hate Mail on Parade

Marc Morano shares some hate mail received at Climate Depot from your typical planetary champion.

Message: Listen to me, Marc. It’s just me and you, no one else is reading this email and you will never have to reply. We both know that you know the truth about climate change and pollution, but you lie. Listen to this again: I know you know the truth and you know it too, but you’re more interested in the money you can get out of lying than our children’s future. Again: you know. But you are willing to indirectly kill millions of people for the sake of some bucks.

Do you even realize it? Would you be able to shoot millions and still grin on TV? I don’t think so. I don’t want to change your mind, keep your money and keep your conscience dirty. But think of that, it’s just you and me. You know, but you’re willing to kill for money. Don’t you feel a motherfucker?

You don’t have to tell anyone. Just be honest enough to admit it to you.
You must be really confident great people will be able to solve this crisis, because if they won’t, wait for me and other thousands of people raining our wrath upon you. Trust me, it wouldn’t be pleasant. Have fun.


As is usual, the person doesn’t have the gonads to use their real name or real email address. Much like one of our favorite trolls from Oregon, who continues to create false personas just to comment here. But, such things do leave IP addresses and other trails. Just a gentle reminder; as we have seen recently, the Internet never forgets. And, when us skeptics compare notes, anonymous cowards like this one can sometimes find themselves having visits from the police to their front door. Have fun.

      • Just ask her to explain the tracer’s of gras s
        and trees found 235 meters under the ice in GREENland

    • The truth is the IPCC’s self serving consensus couldn’t be more wrong if they tried. To be sure, they are trying very hard, and they must, since the scientific truth couldn’t be further away from what they need to support their socialist agenda of world domination by controlling the energy supply.

      • What you write is so true, I was beginning to think that in 2008 with Copenhagen on the horizon. But to this day the sheep barh and smear and laugh at anyone like you or I writing what we have researched and found to be the case.

      • If one listens to Ottmar Edenhofer or Christiana Figueres (former UNFCCC officials), they tell you straight out that the purpose of the IPCC is to redistribute the world’s wealth, we should listen to them. Not only that, we should broadcast their idiocy. Maybe we should find some young Venezuelan refugees to tell our students about their wonderful lives under socialism.

        • Jon,
          It’s the purpose of the UNFCCC to redistribute wealth under the guise of climate reparations. The purpose of the IPCC is to identify science in support of the UNFCCC. There’s a perceived separation where the IPCC focuses on the science while the UNFCCC focuses on politics, yet far too few understand that the consensus surrounding what the IPCC accepts as climate science has an evil bias in favor of the UNFCCC. Once more I will ask why isn’t this institutionalized conflict of interest, whose stated goal is the destruction of western economies, front page news?

    • That is how deluded True Believers are, isn’t it?

      Someone believes X, but will say they actually don’t, because of money, or something.

      Just because True Believers have a price, they think everyone else does.

      I’m a skeptic because as a statistician with 30 years experience, the numbers pointing too the New NEW NEW!!! Apocalypse don’t impress me much.

      Then again, True Believers don’t need numbers so they don’t actually look at them. They parade their innumeracy like medals, saying that they believe the “experts”, who, of course, would never NEVER ever torque data to get a grant or stay employed.

  1. “…We both know that you know the truth about climate change and pollution, but you lie. Listen to this again: I know you know the truth and you know it too, but you’re more interested in the money you can get out of lying than our children’s future. Again: you know. But you are willing to indirectly kill millions of people for the sake of some bucks….”

    Yet another reminder that we are dealing in a ideological or religious cult here. Like the Jonestown, Branch Davidian and Heaven’s Gate cult member before them, the true believers are totally convinced that they are incapable of being wrong. They could not have possibly put their faith and trust in the wrong people.

    The writer of this letter obviously doesn’t understand diddy squat about the difference between science and a religious or ideological doctrine. Treating the CAGW hypothesis as infallible and unquestionable is not science. Only political doctrines and religions are treated that way, and you don’t stop asking questions in science.

    This climate alarmist narrative has been executed so extremely well that it should serve as the textbook example for anyone else trying to pull off something like this in the future. The co-operation of the U.N., national govts, scientists and science institutions and (of course) the MSM have made it all possible.

    Reading this letter is both very funny and very sad at the same time. Hard to decide if it more of one or the other.

    • Agreed, yet I have met successful academics, I have argued with them and they begin to get nasty very quickly, threatening to block and smear on Facebook. They are proud of their children being out of school for climate and they put the words climate change in the title and abstract of their grant applications, despite the research having nothing to do with the scam. This is corruption, and Jones Town religion too. Even there in Jones Town the dissenters were there, they were sexually abused and afraid but they were speaking up. It is a type of abuse to encourage children to blindly strike in the climate strike.

    • “…the true believers are totally convinced that they are incapable of being wrong.”

      I have been coming to the strengthening opinion that there are honestly people who are unable of processing the concept of a differing opinion. My observations have led me to concluding there are certain people who honestly believe that ‘they know what is best’. This can be from either a leader or a follower point of view, but the common theme is they have decided that they (or their role model) have the ‘correct answers’ and they are doing what is best for society as a whole.

      “Everything will be better if only the correct people were in charge.”

      For them there is ‘Right’ and there is ‘Wrong’. Remember these people believe they are doing the ‘right thing’, and often believe they are doing it for the ‘right reasons’. Nearly everything in their rational life has revolved around this concept. They are RIGHT. You, in countering this argument are not simply a different opinion, are a WRONG opinion. For them to accept that your point of view even exists is to accept that great parts of their life was also ‘wrong’ and be extension meaningless.

      So what is easier? To admit your life has no meaning? Or to reject my false god?

      Easy – they reject, utterly, all that counters because to accept is to destroy their own purpose in life. They are actually mentally unable to tolerate or process the concept of a different opinion. You are WRONG. Not just different, WRONG.

      Typically the more global the mind set of these people the more closed minded they are. They know what is Best. Paradoxically these people are almost universally of the Left. The Right, to be pragmatically honest here, tend to be more selfish in their ambition. They want what is best for them or their immediate friends and family. Lefts want justice for the world. Rights want success for themselves. By being more narrow minded in ambition they are actually more open minded to opinions, because provided a differing opinion still allows them to co-exist and maintain their (narrow) ambition it is rarely skin off their nose.

      Basically:
      Lefts – close minded, engaged, angry
      Rights – open minded, apathetic, relaxed

      and the more engaged you become with the ‘big picture’ the less likely you are to ever admitting that you are wrong.

      • The fixed mindset has been identified as a barrier to all learning because it wraps up self-worth in being right. The growth mindset in contrast sees being wrong (i.e., making mistakes) as an opportunity to improve. People can change from fixed to growth, but it takes awareness and self-examination. My observation is that alarmists seem to fall into the “fixed” camp while many but not all skeptics seem to be more “growth” oriented. Skeptics often admit they started out accepting the consensus, realized the error, and changed their minds. Rarely does it go the other way.

        https://www.mindsetworks.com/science/

        • First: A Growth mind set involves being willing to be wrong; second: being willing to be seen by others as being wrong; and thirdly admitting an error was made, analyzing the error, and trying to correct it. Rinse and repeat.

    • I can imagine a conversation with them, trying to talk about climate..

      “do you know what the percentage of CO2 is?”
      ‘why should I, what would you know anyway?’

      “You know all plants lives depend on CO2, all life on Earth really, and that the levels are really low?”
      “so YOU say, but you’re not a climate scientist!’

      “did you ever take an interest in science or study any sciences?”
      ‘I don’t need to, ‘The Scientists’ are right, climate change is REAL’

      I’ve had this conversation dozens of times, it’s not a conversation.. When you ask what they have they throw up talking points. As soon as you even attempt citing established facts and observations in optical physics or botany or chemistry their eyes glaze and they get louder and I realize I am talking to a willful ignorant.

      How can you possibly communicate with these folk, I am stumped. Trying analogies they can see the point, until you ask them to relate it to climatism at which point they are happy to reject anything they may have agreed with It is truly wilful – they do not want to know – they want to Be A Part of Something or Be On the Winning Team

      • Yes Karlos51, I have had arguments with arts based academics that went exactly this way, as you scripted. There has been the brainwashing, the position structured for them to be herded into, and the subsequent maneuvering of everyone into this G W Bush “you’re either with us or you are with the terrorists” follows, such that people are afraid to be called a ‘denier’ (something that Andy Pittman structured). After all skeptics, oh they are old white men. The reason why skeptics are old white men (like me) is that many are retired geologists, agricultural scientists, geographers who understand the fraud in science and they also no longer need to apply for grants – they say what they think.

        • I will say I had one seemingly successful such encounter. The fool tried countering my initial counter-arguments with a sudden redirection to Darwin (I think they all believe “deniers” are all fundamentalist religious zealots). When I started pointing out that Darwin’s theories have nothing to do with climate change, he went to the “scientists say” argument and “if you were a scientist”. I told him I have a science degree from Berkeley (I like to throw in the Berkeley part because it kind of disarms the leftists.) He said that if that were true I wouldn’t be so skeptical about “science”. I quickly schooled him about science and the importance of skepticism. He actually went away muttering, “You’re a skeptic BECAUSE you’re a scientist!” He may have been indoctrinated back into the fold by his peers but I think he had a bit of a revelation.

      • Exactly. You can’t use reason and logic to persuade someone out of a position which they’ve taken without any use of reason or logic. The “leaders” of the Climate Alarmism cult are indeed in it for money and/or power. The followers are just emoting, without reason or knowledge.

    • CD, you omitted probably the most important link – the corrupted education system which is turning science illiterates.

    • CD in Wisconsin wrote:
      “Yet another reminder that we are dealing in a ideological or religious cult here. Like the Jonestown, Branch Davidian and Heaven’s Gate cult member before them, the true believers are totally convinced that they are incapable of being wrong.”

      This could be a self-solving problem. A ‘messiah’ should pop up Any Time Now to convince their death-cult to follow through, as the death-cults before them did. It shouldn’t take much… they’re extremely gullible, they’re not very bright, they have no historical context, they’re dangerously deluded and they’re so convinced that they’re right that they wouldn’t dream of examining the evidence proving them wrong.

      So when that ‘messiah’ does pop up, hold your tongues, all of you. Just sit back with the popcorn and an adult beverage and watch the Darwin Awards play out in real time.

      Stupidity should be painful… it’d ensure things like this didn’t happen.

  2. Yikes!
    I had a similar experience when I spoke up on weather underground today, quite vicious.

  3. Seems to me the intelligence level is rather feeble in the writer.

    ”I know you know the truth and you know it too”

    ”You are willing to indirectly kill millions of people”

    ”You’re willing to kill for money”

    ”Just be honest and admit it to you”

    Illiterate AND stupid AND poison!

  4. “He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion… Nor is it enough that he should hear the opinions of adversaries from his own teachers, presented as they state them, and accompanied by what they offer as refutations. He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them…he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.”
    J.S. Mill “On Liberty”

  5. Settled science is the truth? How dumb do you have to be to believe that (and I mean “believe”) because there are no facts, just scare tactics and misinformation. Then to write this trash. Typical of zombie followers…

    • The settled part is a thimbleful of truth. The exaggerations of the atmosphere’s sensitivity to it could fill a bushel basket.

    • Zombies for sure. These people are stuck in a loop about their climate religion and won’t be swayed, primarily because of their teeny “5” IQ regarding actual science, but “100” IQ in armchair sports.

    • But, but, but, …… those scare tactics and misinformation are literal facts to the person you are calling “dumb” simply because said person was nurtured (taught, schooled, educated) to believe they were factual truths.

      And fer shame, fer shame, ….. the Public Schools have ben nurturing their students with those scare tactics and misinformation for nigh on the past 30 years.

  6. Hopefully the recent Covington suit against the media in the US will have a positive affect on stopping fake news. We’re entering into the “free speech doesn’t mean you can yell ‘fire’ in a theater” arguments.

    • If the Presidential Science panel becomes reality, perhaps more clear and concise guidelines for reporting science in the media could be established and editorializing of scientific reporting eliminated.
      I tire of climate reports crafted from emotionally-charged descriptions and odious vernacular.

    • The whole “false news” is an excuse to shut down what you don’t like to hear. It’s got nothing to do with falsehoods, or free speech.

      Just like before “false news” was invented, let the whole gambit be spoken and aired. The entire subject must be investigated. It matters little is each news outlets only looks at one side, but every outlet must be independent and able to investigate and report as they see the subject.

      This is simply a precursor to socialism and societal control of thought. What is allowed and what is not allowed. Very evil.

      • Greg Cavanagh – March 17, 2019 at 6:40 pm

        The whole “false news” is an excuse to shut down what you don’t like to hear. It’s got nothing to do with falsehoods, or free speech.

        Greg C, ….. just because you get your “jollies” when you hear ”false news”, ”fake news” and/or ”half-truth news” …… doesn’t mean everyone else has to have the same mindset as you do.

        • It’s the use of the general “you”, not the specific you.
          To be honest, I can’t even make sense of your reply.

          • Try learning to think for yourself instead of depending on the Democrat “talking heads” to do your thinking for you.

      • but every outlet must be independent and able to investigate and report as they see the subject.

        Like this:

    • m,

      You are right. If you see a fire in a theatre, say nothing, and get out.

      Leave the other stupid buggers to fry. Keep a low profile, otherwise you might get blamed for not shouting “fire”, so that people could follow proper emergency procedures.

      Same procedure elsewhere. If you see danger, don’t tell anyone else. You might be accused of being alarmist. Best to look after yourself – leave everyone else to their own devices.

      Cheers.

      • Trying to convince a Klimate Katastrophe Kook that there is no ‘fire in the theater’ means they’ll go set the fire.

        They have no historical perspective, they’re so naively hubristic that they disregard any counter-evidence, and even if that counter evidence is all around them (ie: they walk outside for the first time in their short and sheltered lives), they’ll continue to believe their broken and inculcated brains rather than empirical evidence.

        If they’re in danger of being cornered and forced to admit their error, they’ll manufacture the ‘evidence’ to prove themselves ‘not wrong’ (as we saw when they knocked down the lone tree at the beach which proved no sea level rise; as we see in the statistical fraud of the 61% falsified data and ‘pal-reviewed’ reports used to perpetuate the CAGW scam; as we see in the continual stream of fake news touting the CAGW scam; etc.).

        Their lot is lost. When they realize no climate catastrophe is impending, they’ll self-destruct, as all death-cults eventually do.

        Let them… good riddance to bad rubbish. It’s time to stop mollycoddling these delusional idiots.

  7. At least it was coherent and reasonably well written, when compared to some of the other hate mail Mr. Watts has posted.

  8. There was an old man sitting by the side of the road, a few miles outside the city, resting and making soup.
    A young man came along ‘Hey old man, What’s it like in that city yonder ?’
    ‘Well now, what was it like in the place you just came from ?’ asked the old man

    ‘It was great. The people were kind. funny. It was clean and I really didn’t want to leave’
    ‘Well you are in luck. This city is just the same, its a lovely place and the people are fantastic. ‘
    The young man thanks him then heads into the city with a big smile, knowing he will love this place.

    A second young man came along ‘Hey old man, What’s it like in that city yonder ?’
    ‘Well now, what was it like in the place you just came from ?’ asked the old man

    ‘It was horrible. The people were nasty and mean to me. they mocked me. It was filthy and I really couldn’t wait to leave’
    ‘Well you are out of luck. This city is just the same, its a terrible place and the people are horrible. ‘
    The young man scowls then heads into the city with a frown, knowing he will hate this place.

    The point is, anonymous @ climate depot, there is one person who you have to take along for the rest of your life. and that’s you. Unfortunately , you are lumbered with you. if you never heard of mark Morano, you would just find someone else to hate.

    • That’s a great story. It fits the anonymous coward quite nicely. Along with the idea that this guy engages in a LOT of psychological projection. Projecting his own real motives, hatred, and deceit onto others.

      Not exactly the Golden Rule, is it?

    • Henry Ford on “Learning” (and anything else for that matter):

      “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”

  9. The Kids ought to be out protesting the wholesale destruction of wildlife by windmills and industrial solar.

    • I meant to put that comment in the post about flaming birds destroyed by industrial solar.

    • Right on. There was an elementary school in England where they installed a wind turbine to teach the children about renewable energy. The Principal had to get to school early each day to clear out all the dead birds before the children saw them. They eventually got rid of the turbine.

  10. That Oregon loon is still coughing up junk now and then.
    He’s celebrating the 20th anniversary of the “hockey stick as being required by basic physics”
    and that juvenile Greta getting nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

    If these people were ever given authority

    • The Nobel Peace Prize was well and truly discredited on the day that Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) leader and terrorist Yasser Arafat was awarded it. Arafat was responsible for mass murders, the hijacking of airliners and other atrocities, yet he was declared to be a man of peace by the cretins who decided to award the Peace Prize to a mass-murdering terrorist. The man who was known as the Butcher of Cairo, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat also managed to get the Peace Prize. And then the Peace Prize was awarded to former US President Barack Obama. For what? He did absolutely nothing to foster peace anywhere.

      But to nominate a kid who’s completely delusional and misinformed about this bogus “climate change” really brings the Nobel Prize into considerable disrepute. Even with her best intentions, Thunberg has no idea that her push for school children strikes for this “climate change” is based on a monstrous scam – and she fell for it, hook line and sinker.

      And she’ll pay for it the rest of her life, considering the interwebs never forgets her silliness will be there for all to see forever.

      • yay i also said the day arafat got the nobel that it was now a meaningless zero.
        and ohbummers was the absolute topper, man did sweet fanny adams to deserve anything
        Nobel should be spinning in his grave to see the abuse of what, I think ,was well meant once.
        then the ipccmanngore event – groan

      • I take it that there aren’t many contenders out there for the world peace prize. They have to give it to someone. Greta is now famous, so they’re attaching their status to her fame.

    • I wonder who that Oregonian is. It almost sounds like a certain person in high political office.

  11. I feel for those cult followers sometimes. The level of paranoia they live with is extreme.

    Me, I live in the land of the free and home of the brave. Not the land of the regulated and home of the paranoid. Something I like telling the Dems.

  12. “Message: Listen to me, Marc. It’s just me and you, no one else is reading this email”

    Just about sums up his accuracy regarding reality.

    • Yes philincalifornia, the text of this looney is vicious and threatening, he is the type who would cause serious harm if he thought he could get away with it. He has psychopathic, or a sociopath’s tendencies with his threats that he thinks are cool and that he has the mandate to give.

  13. I am convinced something very strange is going on here on Planet Earth and for that matter other Planets also. But I am convinced it has absolutely bugger all to do with C02.

  14. “You must be really confident great people will be able to solve this crisis”

    People who look around and see a crisis have to have a complete lack of historical perspective to believe there’s a crisis. Some of the more mature in this crowd probably remembers previous decades in the last century when truly devastating weather events took out far more people than anything we’ve seen in many years. This idea that we’re in the midst of a crisis is everywhere in the media, bombarding people with this message daily.

    The Hitler quote in the earlier post about the corruption of climate science says it all.

    “But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”

  15. I have run across individuals in Yahoo news comments who are quite uncivil. They appear to keep up with the literature and can cite ‘chapter and verse,’ but seem incapable of actually independently analyzing what they read. I strongly suspect that one individual has several aliases and slightly different personas. But, the one thing that is constant is insisting that only articles published in peer-reviewed journals have any validity or value. He/she/they also engage in ad hominem attacks rather than try to rebut any counter facts. With the name calling, it is almost like being back in grade school trying to have an exchange with them. I do question their mental stability! I had one of them even try to get me to confirm the city they though that I lived in.

    • Clyde, you just described almost every comment thread on YouTube. Anonymity seems to bring out the worst in people.

      • not just YouTube, but twitter and most any non-moderated internet forum where anonymous posting is allowed.

  16. This is not some new “Climate” cultism. This is just more of the same old infantile leftist activity.

    The lefties have glommed onto climate as a tool. They are “pimping” the Climate as a great way to leverage their investment in MSM propaganda and willing collision in Academia in their unending grasp for (illegitimate) power.

    Proof: by their own (inflated) numbers, doing everything dreamed of in the Paris Accords wouldn’t measurably affect climate…SO IT’S NOT ABOUT CLIMATE.

    Unfortunately, they have turned our precious institutes of science into a bunch of prostitutes…ok to keep feeding at the trough so long as they go along. The silence of most of the science community is appalling.

    It’s sort of working…look at all the money wasted in Europe, especially Germany.

    The AMO, PDO, and the Sun are all pointing to some cooling… can’t come too soon. Reality might be enough to break the back of this fraud.

    Fortunately, most US citizens don’t really give it much thought…and don’t care.

  17. Yes philincalifornia, the text of this loony is vicious and threatening, he is the type who would cause serious harm if he thought he could get away with it.

    He has psychopathic, or a sociopath’s tendencies with his threats that he thinks are cool and that he has the mandate to give.

  18. If you read the news at all, you will be aware that tolerance for other people’s views and commitment to respectful political dialogue in a democracy is at a very low point. There are many who can share the blame for that, on both the left and rights sides of the political spectrum. What distinguishes the intolerance of the climate alarmists from that of other groups is their profound belief that their views are based not just on better science, economics and policy considerations, but are also morally superior. The champions of alarmism have succeeded in persuading millions that it is more “moral” to deprive an African country today of the aid it needs to build a badly needed power plant to electrify the rural areas than it would be to add to the emissions of carbon dioxide (most of which come from the developing countries themselves) that might affect global temperatures a century hence. They are persuaded that it is morally superior to subsidize ethanol and take millions of acres out of food production that would benefit the world’s hungry. It is also morally superior to add billions of dollars to the electricity bills of people, thus increasing significantly the numbers suffering from energy poverty. The root of this moral view is clear. The “Planet”, that nebulous concept of nature, counts far more than the people on it.

  19. “The Internet never forgets.” It forgot my GeoCities web site, which is probably a good thing.

  20. There are some doozy comments on WattsUpWithThat FaceBook postings from random folks.
    My favorite doozy poster on her page states something to the effect:
    “For a decade people thought I was crazy for believing conspiracy theories, then I was proven right.”

    When one has that as one’s motto on FB, I don’t think one can accuse our host of taking oil money, much less of being a “denier”.

  21. My response is always: “You are perfectly willing to destroy the environment, your kid and your grandkids future and kill billions in an effort to get your way.”
