Nauseous and jolted – Climateworld reacts to Trump

How has the climate blog world reacted to Donald Trump winning the US presidential election? Skeptics and regular people are probably walking around, celebrating, waving their mental middle finger at climate alarmists whose plans have been rudely interrupted.

Here’s the Sou meltdown:

My first reaction on hearing of Donald Trump’s probably (sic) victory was an emotional jolt, accompanied by the physical sensation of nausea. …

That’s the picture – a nauseous Sou, staggering for the smelling salts.

The first comment on the thread began:

I cried today …

CRR Kampen wanted to move to a ‘safe space’

I might now adopt ‘despair’ and see about planning for the remainder of my existence in some safe place on the globe if there be any. […]

Bernard J, ever ready to bury people under the weight of his prose, begins:

I’ve been working …to increase resilience both in my own personal sphere and in my local community, at the expense of my previous engagement online …

And on and on it goes, for more than 250 comments from shrinking violets and snowflakes, only many of them are properly geriatric.

At the Eli Rabett blog, someone called Brian appears to have taken over and is in … denial, with a post titled:

The American people have spoken, and they chose Hillary Clinton

The most hilarious blog on Trump in all of climate land comes from (who else) Realclimate. In characteristic fashion, with no regard to reality or polling results, ‘group’ exhorted readers:

Don’t make a choice that you, your children and your children’s children will regret forever.

Apart from the ‘think of the grandchildren’ nonsense, out-of-touch ‘group’ was as tone deaf with Trump as it was during Brexit. Without a doubt its members’ jet-setting around the world and rubbing shoulders with celebrities has only hastened the schism.
