A “Climate Change Denier” Confesses Or Something

I was highly amused by the piece by a supposed “denier”, because we all call ourselves that (sic). And then there’s the reality that the article is on the very far left TruthOut. And, really, how many on the left are already believers in Hotcoldwetdry, and have always been? Much like warming over the past 15+ years, the number would be statistically insignificant

I suppose it wasn’t really until I was standing on the west side of Hoboken, N.J., in water and oil up to my thigh, that climate change really made sense. And it wasn’t until I was out organizing on New York City’s outer beaches after Hurricane Sandy that I understood my sluggishness on climate justice was nothing short of climate change denial. (Snip)

Unfortunately, there is a lot of truth to this story: The crisis is gargantuan, and it’s getting worse. Ultimately only a fundamental social, political, economic and personal transformation is going to get us out of this mess.

Does this hardcore progressive writing make you think that the writer, Yotam Maron, used to not be a Believer in AGW? Reading further, it seems that he was more of a “eh, this isn’t my issue” rather than a non-believer. But, now he is, and wants Everyone Else to believe and to kill Keystone, stop using fossil fuels, etc.

Progressives love lying about who they are. Marin was big into the Occupy movement. A big community organizer. All sorta of lefty stuff.

    Strike One: claiming to be a “denier”
    Strike Two: Posting on far left media
    Strike Three: living in Hoboken, in an area flooded by industrial waste
    Strike Four: Use of term “climate justice”
    Strike Five: crisis worse than we thought
    Strike Six: Only massive human transformation will save us from ourselves
    Strike Seven: Anyone involved in socialist far-left activities is not a Climate Realist

  2. Strike 8: the article being posted all over the place at multiple far left websites.

    It was a “professionally” written agitation piece designed to be spread far and wide to create an appearance that a former “skeptic” now Believes, much like we get those “used to be a Republican” articles written by people who are registered Dems, vote dem, donate to Dems, etc.

  3. Gumballs_of_Tyranny says:

    Don’t forget those lefties and Dems who go protest as if they are a radical far-right in order to spread hate and racism. They get to apologize for saying “stupid” things, yet Repubs are never allowed to have foot-n-mouth syndrome sometimes. Media claims that those misstatements by Repubs are in the Repub heart, but the open and angry public statements by Dems pretending to be Repubs, aren’t?

    I suppose we all like to see someone from the “other side” convert to “our side”. But the left seems to be so desperate for such converts that they’re constantly putting forward these fake converts. This fellow, Andrew Sullivan, Cindy McCain, etc etc. People who say “I used to be a conservative but now I’ve seen the light”, or, “I’m a die-hard conservative, but I just can’t support the Republicans/Tea Party/whatever when they say …” But very, very often, when you look into these people, it turns out that they were never conservatives to begin with.

    Oh, I’m sure there are some number of people who used to be conservatives but switched to become liberals. I guess they are very, very few, though, or liberals wouldn’t be constantly parading these phoney converts.

    48% of self identified Republicans say that climate change is a serious problem.

    The hard right will continue to deny that teh climate is changing. This will continue to reduce the chance of the GOP winning a national election.
    In order to get nominated they must have support from the most radical wing of the GOP

      Sweet! A Lib wants Conservatives to win elections. What a sweet guy! And massively confused. Climate always changes. That’s why we call it ‘climate’ and not ‘permanent’. There is no evidance of any man made ‘climate change’. None. There is propoganda. (See Al Gore and the movie he made in his basement.) There are lies, see ‘the hockey stick graph’. And there is money. There are billions of dollars invested in the lie of man made global warming. So long as the con artist can make a buck spewing this hokum, we are going to see ‘johns’ pushing the lie. John is a pimp and man-made-global-warming is his whore.

  6. Gumballs_of_Tyranny says:

    John, you are off your meds again. Please start taking them.

    It is we, the Realists, that proclaim loudly that the climate DOES change, that man DOES have an effect upon his climate – mostly local, but can have a wider impact. But, as to how much man has an impact upon the global scale of warming that is currently underway following our leaving of the last ice age is under debate.

    Much like your wacky liberal lefties, huh john?

    If he was for real he would’ve mentioned all the money us deniers get paid by big oil along with how he intends to pay it all back.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go deposit my latest check from BP/Mobil/Exxon so I can make a down payment on a new gas guzzling SUV.

  8. Gumballs_of_Tyranny says:

    Silly noob. I have mine direct deposited.
