Media Posts McCarthy-esque Hit List of ‘Climate Change Deniers’


In a move reminiscent of a wild-eyed, 1950s Commie hunt, EcoWatch has published a list of the most dangerous heretics from climate change orthodoxy, including Donald Trump, Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX), and Marc Morano.

For the crime of questioning the science behind current global warming theories, especially regarding human causality and radical proposals of CO2 reduction, EcoWatch writer Michael Mann has branded these freethinking skeptics as “deniers”—in an intentional reference to those who repudiate the Jewish Holocaust.

Gone are the days when intelligent inquiry was lauded as a prized element of serious science. Mann accuses the skeptics of “clouding the climate change debate” with their pesky, unanswered questions and stalling action through “a campaign of deliberate misinformation.”

The EcoWatch piece reprises an earlier article in the Washington Post hawking copies of Mann’s new book, The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy by holding up climate change deniers to public scorn.

The full ten-member “basket of deplorables” includes Donald Trump, “the most prominent current climate change denier of them all,” along with physicist S. Fred Singer, Steve Milloy, Marc Morano, Congressman Joe Barton, Sarah Palin, Rupert Murdoch, David and Charles Koch, and Bjorn Lomborg.
