If you’re skeptical of man-caused global warming, you are like German putschists — Updated

Don’t look at me like that. I’m not the one who compared rational skepticism about a seriously flawed theory to a Nazi coup d’etat:

…However, not everyone agrees with me on this, and one of my most perceptive critics, David Brin, whose insightful columns on science often appear here in the San Diego Jewish World, too, is one of them….[Brin] ”Especially since the recommendations do not amount to ‘sitting in the dark and shivering while ruining the economy.’ Nobody wants that. Not even hippies.  There are prudent measures we could take now, to prevent the worst mass extinction event in 65 million years. ’

This is political.  It is a putsch by the same Junkers feudal caste that foisted Hitler on the German people… “in order to prevent socialism.”  It is a Big Lie campaign by the feudal aristocracy that started and maintained the diaspora for 2000 years’ 

Umm… New Tone Alert? Godwinning?

Of course, this isn’t the first time skeptics of dangerous man-caused climate change have been accused of being little better than Holocaust-deniers; CBS’ Scott Pelley (1) did that years ago. And besides, it’s kind of a step down: What’s being a genocidal maniac compared to being a traitor to the whole planet?

We Holocaust deniers Jew haters skeptics have our standards, after all.

Unlike, apparently, some best-selling science fiction authors.

(1) Have I mentioned that Scott Pelley is a smug, arrogant jackass? Why yes, I believe I have.

UPDATE: To clarify the intent of the title of this post, my sarcasm was not directed at Danny Bloom, the author of the quoted San Diego Jewish World article, but David Brin, the science fiction author, who made a very ill-thought and degrading comparison of climate-change skeptics to backers of an attempted coup by the deeply anti-semitic Nazi Party. I’ve edited the quoted portion to be more precise. I’ve also edited the title to more closely reflect Brin’s words.

  1. Are climate skeptics promoting anti-Semitism?! No, they are not, and Marc Morano has purposely maligned me by putting a loaded word in my mouth! and this blog also . i am writing a follow up for hte NYTimes on how you twistsed my words and i am giving you a chance sir to give a quote to the NYTimes about why you twisted mky oped into a antiseimtism, charge swhen i never inf act said antyh8ignt that? email me or leave comment here./

    you will be haering from the NYTiems editrors soon


    UPDATE: I will not comment here anymore, but it is important to point out to reporters and bloggers and commenters here that my oped here has been picked up the climate denialist Climate Depot website funded by rightwing oil lobby and energy industries in Washington DC run by Marc Morano who in his oh so PR savvy ways headlined his pick up of my oped here so as to cause maximum damage by writing:

    ”Are skeptics promoting anti-Semitism?!


    Warmists’ new claim: ‘Is global warming a major Jewish issue? It should be’ — ‘Israel will be no more if we do not stop global warming in its tracks now’ ” — [Read the Full Article]


    First of all I am not a warmist — whatever ThAT means — I am a progressive leftwing climate activist and I was not speaking for all climate activists but only for myself. I was my own individual OPEd in a Jewish newspaper in San Diego, and not once did i call anyone an antisemite or claim that climate skeptics were promoting antisemitism. How does Marc come up with that trash! PLEASE. but it sells papers and builds
    traffic and he happy with the headline as a pig in mud. I know Marc. He is good at what he does, but he is
    a sick man. He’s also my friend and I care about him.

    and then he links to this SDJW commentary.

    NOW EVERY READER of English knows that not once in my article did I claim that skeptics are antisemitic? SEE HOW THE rightwing denialists with their heads in the sand and thei pockets lined by the oil and energy industries and lobbyists work? They take things out of context. I never once ever ever called anyone an antisemiite in my oped here. Did I? Marc Morano owes me and this website an apology! Signed, Danny Bloom

  2. and btw, i wrote that OPED in the San Diego Jewish World, and I am Jewish, and i never never once said skeptics are promoting antisemitism? i never even mentioned the A word. Marc Morano unethically and unfprofessional twisted my oped inot a cute PR healine fopr his blog saying “Warmist dnny bloom accuses climate denialists of promoting antisemitism?!” and notice he used a qusetion mark first and then follwoed by an excmalation mark. as if to say I really said that. I NEVER DID. please apoloigze sir and correct your blog here. I demand an apology. This is unconcionable what yioyu have written here adn i am now writing a followup OPEd for the new yoprk times and quoting your twisted BLOG here. if yo7u wou;df like to comment as quote in the NYTimes please, pelase contact edtotrs there at public@nytimes.com

    i am daniel halevi bloom, and i never said this: ”If you’re skeptical of man-caused global warming, you hate Jews and want them to die”

    in my oped i merely said skeptics will not like the theme of my new book, a novel, titled POLAR CITY RED….i never said anything about hating Jews or wanting them to die.”

    please correct this. the new york Times reporter has your link and name now and is rrepoting this news, email him at Justin Gillis at the Times, or at Andrew Revkin at the Times DOT EARTH blog….you are in big trouble for lying about me. THis is a kind of libel. please correct your headline sir

  3. you wrote this headline? ”If you’re skeptical of man-caused global warming, you hate Jews and … promoting anti-Semitism and memorializing Adolf Hitler, apparently ..”.

  4. and i am telling sister toldjas the same she also wrote If you’re skeptical of man-caused global warming, you hate Jews and … promoting anti-Semitism and memorializing Adolf Hitler, apparently …

  5. thanks for your update and editing but one thing: could the title of the post be changed from ”If you’re skeptical of man-caused global warming, you hate Jews and want them to die — Updated” …to ”If you’re skeptical of man-caused global warming, you might not like Danny Bloom’s oped here (and David Brin’s comment quoted in the OpEd) — Updated”

    ? can do.

    to Marc, Marc, Phineas

    thanks…. but you should know that Mr Brin ‘s remarks were included
    in my OPED and i asked him for a comment and he sent
    that, and i used it as part of my OPED, so you are insulting HIM too.
    he is also Deeply Jewish man……what you did by
    coopying Marc Morano’s headline was WRONG……neither I nor Brin ever
    said skeptics are antisemtic? COME ON

    show some deceny and resepct for David too

    and thanks for understnading me…i am not angry, MARC mroan is my
    friend, but that was a low BLOW, accsuing ME of accusing
    ypu guys of being antisemitic….I NEVER NEVER NEVER ONCE used that
    word ion my OPED

    why did MARC do thjat? i am cING HIM NOW

    ccing him

  6. thank you for new headline, much better and more accurate now, but STILL not really accurate, but this is as close to accureate as we are going to get, so thanks. DANNY, 1949-2032
