The Radical Left Environmental Zealots Are Cracking Up!

Case in point are some of the comments being made to this landmark editorial by Kate McMillan of SDA. 
Here is a prime example of an enviro-zealot literally losing his mind:

Kate, one of the reasons the MSM doesn't cover stories like these right away is because you and many others against AGW theory aren't objective, but rather, partisan ideologues. You've put your feet in the sand and aren't willing to hear or believe anything but what you believe now. The majority aren't taking you seriously because you care more about being right in your original thought than the ultimate truth.

This story IS worthy of MSM coverage, and would likely have made it there earlier if it didn't come from the likes of people who make publicly racist comments about inner city children. 

It's not so much that they're against reporting it, it's that you taint it with your lack of professionalism and excessive bias, making them afraid to go near it for fear of being associated with you.

Click on the hyperlink above to read it for yourself, along with what will surely be many hilarious responses.  Here's mine:

Dear Tim,

Since we're in the Christmas Season, let me christen you with posting THE STUPIDEST comment I've read in some time.

Earlier this week Dennis Miller said on his nationally syndicated radio show that assorted people who were AGW zealots (think "religious cult") would start mentally breaking down in all sorts of unforeseen ways.

You clearly seem to fit that bill to a "T", with logic pulled out from deep within your tuchus. But for the sake of argument, let me take you seriously for a moment and deconstruct what you wrote:
  1. The MSM makes its decisions based on Kate McMillan and others like her.
  2. Most people against AGW theory (AGW Skeptics) aren't objective BUT, by implication those supporting AGW theory (AGW Believers) are ... objective.
  3. "Objective" in this context means "basing one's decisions on facts". Thus you're stating that AGW Believers have based their conclusions on facts.
  4. AGW Skeptics are "partisan idealogues" but, by implication, AGW Believers are non-partisan free thinkers.
  5. AGW Skeptics are the ones who have closed their minds, eyes, & ears. Such folks are the ones who aren't interested in seeing the facts and don't want to debate.
  6. AGW Believers know "The Ultimate Truth".
  7. Kate McMillan and other AGW Skeptics are racists.
  8. Referring back to #1, the MSM would have covered this story much earlier except for #7.
  9. AGW Skeptics are the ones who lack professionalism and have excessive bias.
  10. AGW Believers and the MSM constantly exhibit a profound amount of professionalism and have very little bias.

Is that about right, Tim?

Could you kindly share with us the names of all teachers you've ever had? For each & every one of them should have their credentials thoroughly investigated.

I also can't stop thinking of the brilliant quote from this piece:

Lastly and as a slight aside, why so little from the MSM? That one is easy. You need to have a decent analytical brain just to deal with the chain of events. You need to have a decent analytical brain, a mathematical/scientific mind and a good grasp of some very hard statistics to understand what is being done to massage the numbers and to see how significant it is to the chain of events.

Slice your average environment correspondent through the middle and you're going to find a left-leaning liberal arts graduate who is utterly out of his/her depth. Their world view is being swept from underneath them and they are being shown—in ways that they do not really and have never had to understand—that the guys they thought were the goodies are in fact "at it" and that those they have spent a decade disparaging as deniers were in fact spot on.

I would find that hard to report too.

For does this not perfectly describe Tim?
