True believers in global warming are not just kooks. They are evil kooks. Does that sound like hyperbole? Then check out the final solution Australian expat Richard Parncutt, a professor at the University of Graz in Austria, advocates for those who won’t drink the Kool-Aid voluntarily:
I propose that the death penalty is appropriate for influential GW deniers.
He justifies murdering his ideological opponents with the authoritarian trick of utilitarianism. Any crime can be excused if pointy-headed elitists decide that it promotes the greatest good for the greatest number. As Parncutt puts it:
If ten million people are going to die with a probability of 10%, that is like one million people dying with a probability of 100%.
That is, even if there is only a 10% chance that global warming is not a complete crock, it is still the equivalent of murdering 1 million people if you do not impose global totalitarianism and Medieval living standards in an attempt to prevent it. Therefore, by shooting a few thousand people who insist on clinging to politically incorrect notions of individual liberty, our rulers would actually be saving many lives. If killing a few thousand doesn’t do the trick…
Being a moonbat, Parncutt believes that even mass murderers should not be subject to the death penalty. Those who point out that he is full of baloney, however, must be killed for the greater good.
Combine utilitarianism, progressives’ rejection of any meaningful system of morality, and the shrill hysteria that has eggheads looking for final solutions, and the lame joke that is global warming could end up killing more people than communism. All we need is for the wrong people to be in charge — and they are already in charge. If they are able to consolidate their power sufficiently, who knows what lengths they will go to to make the world safe from humanity?
Meanwhile, it still hasn’t gotten any warmer for the past 16 years. But maybe shooting anyone who repeats it will make that inconvenient truth go away.
