In its desperation the climate campaign resorted to calling climate skeptics “denialists” for quite a while now, with some going so far as to make an explicit comparison with holocaust deniers, just in case anyone didn’t get the point. Well, who are the “denialists” now? Our friends at CFACT (Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow) are on hand this week at the latest round of UN climate talks in Bonn. What?—you didn’t know there was another round of climate talks under way? Where they argue for hours about whether to place a semi-colon in a particular spot in their latest draft declaration (true story)? Just mark it as another sign of the media’s waning interest in the issue.
Anyway, CFACT took its video cameras around to ask delegates whether they were aware of the fact that global temperatures have stopped rising for the last 15 years or so. Hilarity (and some revealing comments about how the facts don’t really matter to these folks) ensues. Who are the “denialists” now? I’d give these guys a Green Weenie, except they’ve already won so many that I don’t want them to start hoarding.
