Responding in this earlier post on Joe Romm, Omniclimate pointed out that climate change activists were akin to vultures, rather than hawks.
It is evident that there is truth in what he says – it is as though they wait in the wings for disaster, and then utter the word ‘global warming’.
If we turn to the same Romm post, we can find evidence for this pattern of thinking – the yearning, the existential ache, for disaster of some kind to be caused by ‘climate change’, so the final orgiastic release can occur. “Aaah! I told you so”.
When the need to convince others of one’s view, is greater than their desire to live, the realm of ‘science’ and ‘policy’ has long been crossed and left far behind.
When mind-numbing disaster strikes, leaving us humbled and becalmed, Richard North wrote yesterday, there would be ‘very little to add’. The blogs go silent; the raw images and the reports – for as long as they are able to make it through outside – tell the story far better.
But where there is death and destruction, the climate vultures circle the skies and force the hand – there is something to add. And it has been added:
The tsunami wasn’t cause by a “supercharged” storm surge, you moron. It was cause by a supercharged 8.9 earthquake that had fuck all to do with climate change and everything to do with the fact that Japan sits on top of a bloody huge subduction zone. To link this natural catastrophe to the AGW gravy train is beyond disgusting.
Thus does Lynne at CountingCats lets loose an enormous blast. She has spoken for all of us, amidst the self-indulgent pussyfooting that carefully avoids the central factorum – that climate activists write stories like this is no accident or misstep, it is a logical outcome.
