Climate change skeptics will be seen as promoting Anti-Semitism because they want Israel to disappear from existence, or so says climate denialist Marc Morano and others of his ilk. [Google the meme. Very weird.] Morano made his remark[able] headline after reading Dan Bloom's recent oped in the San Diego Jewish World, which opined that if climate change is not stopped soon, then climate chaos will turn the Earthhttp://www.climatedepot.com/a/16134/Are-skeptics-promoting-antiSemitism-Warmists-new-claim-Is-global-warming-a-major-Jewish-issue-It-should-be--Israel-will-be-no-more-if-we-do-not-stop-global-warming-in-its-tracks-now
into a dystopian hell and Israel as a nation will cease to exist by the year 2500, along with all other Middle East nations. But Bloom neversaid anything about climate skeptics promoting anti-semitism. Morano and his moron supporters who cannot even read plain English apparentlytook Bloom's very well written oped and twisted the words and ideas into the opposite of what Bloom was saying. This is how the right wing climate
disinformation team works. Are they Nazis or neo-Nazis? No. They are just angry, stupid people with their heads in the sand.
Many climate acitivists, including Bloom and sci fi writer David Brin and James Howard Kunstler, say that in order for climate change activists to succeed, they must “win the conversation” against those who deny there is a crisis.
“I remember, again going back to my early years in the South, when the Civil Rights revolution was unfolding, there were two things that really made an impression on me,” Al Gore once said. “My generation watched Bull Connor turning the hose on civil rights demonstrators and we went, ‘Whoa! How gross and evil is that?’ My generation asked old people, ‘Explain to me again why it is okay to discriminate against people because their skin color is different?’ And when they couldn’t really answer that question with integrity, the change really started.”The former USA vice president recalled how progressive American society succeeded in marginalizing racists and said climate change skeptics must be defeated in the same manner.
“Secondly, back to this phrase ‘win the conversation,’” he continued. “There came a time when friends or people you work with or people you were in clubs with — you’re much younger than me so you didn’t have to go through this personally — but there came a time when racist comments would come up in the course of the conversation and in years past they were just natural. Then there came a time when people would say, ‘Hey, man why do you talk that way, I mean that is wrong. I don’t go for that so don’t talk that way around me. I just don’t believe that.’ That happened in millions of conversations and slowly the conversation was won.”“We have to win the conversation on climate,” Gore added.
Gore also took shots at Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has lambasted climate change alarmists, and at other politicians who dare to question the veracity of global warming science.
“This is an organized effort to attack the reputation of the scientific community as a whole, to attack their integrity, and to slander them with the lie that they are making up the science in order to make money,” Gore said.
