Warmists Freak Out Over Sarah Palin Declaration, Call Her “Climate Criminal”

I’m obviously no longer a big fan of Sarah Palin, but she does make some good points now and then, designed to drive liberals nuts

(HuffPo) Sarah Palin is once again brushing off global warming as “junk science,” comparing (that’s the link to her video) warnings about the threat of climate change to the eugenics movement of the early 20th century.

Last week, the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate recorded a video for the Sarah Palin Channel dismissing the “con job” of man-made climate change.

“I’m not a denier. I don’t doubt that climate change exists,” Palin says in the video. “No one has proven that these changes are caused by anything done by human beings via greenhouse gases. There’s no convincing scientific evidence for man-made climate change. The climate has always been changing.”

She continues: “Climate change is to this century what eugenics was to the last century. It’s hysteria and a lot of it’s junk science. And when it’s as discredited as eugenics, you know a lot of people are going to look very foolish and heartless.”

It’s an interesting comparison to the eugenics push by Leftists, which has never really went away. “Climate change” is very much about pushing junk science to make political points. Here in North Carolina, Democrats used the eugenics push to sterilize mostly women, and mostly minority (meaning Black) women during the 20th Century. Palin notes in the video

“In the meantime, don’t buy into the global warming con simply because it’s hip with celebrities and limousine liberals who consume more fuel and emit more emissions bee-bopping around in their private jets and multiple mansions than the rest of us ever will,” she wrote in the Facebook post. “We could have more respect for these folks if they behaved in their private lives as if global warming really is as catastrophic as they publicly claim it is.”

The comments at Talking Points Memo were less than charitable, and if Republicans were writing stuff like that about a Democrat woman, there would be a huge kerfuffle, #WarOnWomen. And, obviously, lots of Progressive sites are slamming her, but here’s the best

SARAH PALIN — THE DUMBEST CLIMATE CRIMINAL ALIVE

That’s from Ring Of Fire, a hardcore Progressive website for radio and videos, which features hyper-Warmist (and massive climahypocrite) Robert F Kennedy, Jr. And we can see the way these hardcores think, calling people who do not believe the same way “criminals”. Yes, Progressives really do want to criminalize thought.

You also get others, like this at Raw Story

The hosts of The Young Turks mocked former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) on Tuesday for her attempt to dismiss climate change as “bad science” like the eugenics scares of the 20th century.

“All you can really do is look at her and laugh at her and make fun of her,” Ana Kasparian said. “But in reality, there’s a serious point to take away from all this: it’s assholes like the Koch brothers, it’s morons like Sarah Palin and all the other Republicans that deny climate change that’s literally gonna lead to the destruction of this planet.”

Literally!

    One of the big mistakes that people make about Sarah Palin is that she doesn’t know what she is talking about, or that she “makes it up”.

    The entire eugenics reference was first brought up (AFAIK) by Michael Crichton in “State of Fear”, his novel about the global warming movement and eco-terrorism. Here is the link to his analysis: http://www.michaelcrichton.net/essay-stateoffear-whypoliticizedscienceisdangerous.html

    Dismissing what she says is a mistake.

  2. Nighthawk says:

    As she says, the climate is changing. Just as it always has and always will. There is NO proof that any of the changes we see are being caused by man’s activities. In fact, historical evidence shows us that there have been more drastic changes in the past that predate man’s use of fossil fuels.

    I firmly believe that the actions of the warmists will end up causing more damage to the planet from their attempts to cool it.

    They want to remove CO2 from the atmosphere when that is what plants need to survive. It is also known that plants do much better with higher CO2 concentrations than what we have now. Around 1000ppm being the best.

    They also crow about all the doom and gloom about rising temps but aren’t we, and most life forms on Earth, better equipped to survive and thrive in warmer temps?

    So yeah, let’s reduce a gas in the atmosphere that is essential for all life on the planet from its already miniscule amount. Makes sense to me. NOT.

  3. Jeffery says:

    Nighthawk,

    You know better.

    No one advocates removing all CO2 from atmosphere. If we stopped all fossil fuel burning today, atmospheric CO2 would slowly drop until it reached the natural equilibrium (probably about 280 ppm).

    And what an experiment you’ve proposed. Increase CO2 to 1000 ppm, enriching some folks now, and let our kids, grandkids and great-grandkids determine the outcome!

    How will curbing CO2 emissions harm the planet more than global warming will?

    To whom it may concern: Dismissing what Sarah Palin says saves time.

    Jeff,
    You have never, ever linked CO2 to anything. You don’t even know where the measures of CO2 take place. You don’t understand CO2 in the ocean. You have no idea of natural production of CO2. You desire the elimination of CO2 production, yet you don’t understand that means elimination of our economy and the fact that our competitors are laughing at us for trying. Your partners in the CO2 farce think that we can solve all environmental problems by becoming communistic. None of you models have worked. There is absolutely nothing about this that rises above the level of a scam. Now, Palin does have problems and I don’t think she is that bright, but people like you make her look like a genesis.

  5. david7134 says:

    I am sorry, genesis should be genius. Phone call.

  6. jl says:

    “You can laugh at her and make fun of her….It’s assholes like the Koch brothers and morons like Sarah Palin and all the other Republicans..” Yes, you can laugh and make fun of her, but it seems obvious that you can’t refute her.

  7. Jeffery says:

    She says nothing worth refudiating. Her schtick is predictable: outrageous claims, usually inaccurate, to gain media attention – linking liberals or Democrats or scientists to something bad. Why not compare climate science to Nazism, Sarah?

    From Teach’s own link: The political eugenics movement resulted in the Immigration Act of 1924, initiated and passed by Republican majority House and Senate and signed by Republican Calvin Coolidge, stating, “”America should be kept American. . . . Biological laws show that Nordics deteriorate when mixed with other races.” (Sounds like today’s Republicans!)

    From Teach’s own link: “After World War I, few scientists joined the ranks of the eugenicists.”

    In contrast, over 90% of physical scientists agree that man’s burning of fossil fuels is causing the current warming.

    Oh, sorry. I just refudiated her without trying.

  8. John says:

    Sarah is and had been a great gift to America

    Why didn’t we see any posts here about the drunken brawl when they crashed that party?

  9. How is it my link? It was embedded. Typical dishonesty from Jeff.

    How cute, John. I guess you get your kicks know large men are assaulting conservative women.

  10. BTW, would you care to get into issues such as official Dem platforms taking a stance against immigrants, how virtually every state that practiced forced sterilization was run by Dems, and how your abortion goddess, Margaret Sanger, was a big proponent of eugenics and reducing the population of Blacks?

  11. John says:

    How about posting some links to ghd pics that the cops took
    Or even better the audio links
    Teach the audio links are awesome especially. Bristol who doesn’t want any pics cause she has beer all over her face

  12. John says:

    Lol
    Teach that is the best you can come up with? That I get my kicks fro reading about assaults on women ???
    Teach the Palins wrre all heavily intoxicated
    That is what the cops say in their interview
    They crashed a party they were not invited to attend
    I find the whole thing hilarious
    As for the assault on Bridtol I am quite sure that if it had happened she would have presses charges
    Any idea why she was wearing 300$ sunglasses at night ?
    Think meth. May have been involved ?
    Meth is a big problem in Wasilla

  13. Jeffery says:

    Teach,

    By all means. Democratic platforms and Margaret Sanger are fair game.

    The historian Ms. Palin compared the turn of the century eugenics movement to modern climate science, but she inadvertently neglected to support her argument.

    Ms. Palin is most aptly compared to the trashy pseudo-Christian grifter Tammy Faye Bakker.
