Charles Manson or Osama bin Laden? Nothing at all, suggests the (tobacco, oil and motor industry funded) denialist Heartland Institute in a new set of billboard ads in the Chicago area. No, seriously.
The resident denialist nutter at The UK’s leading newspaper for old paleoconservative duffers and young neocon crazies, The Dully Torygraph, complains that “greens” (when not capitalized and thus referring to the political party, always intended by the Torygraph as a euphemism for “Dirty Fucking Hippies”) did it first and asks:
judging by today’s fracas, where it is okay to compare climate-change sceptics to mass murderers, it is not okay to compare greens to mass murderers. Is that right?
Yes, it is. Because denialism will actually cause the deaths of millions.
Update GOP Rep. Sensenbrenner is the first to pull out of Heartland’s up-coming climate denial conference over the billboards.
