Hate mail goes both ways

While Michael Mann and Katharine Hayhoe continually whine in the media about alleged “hate mail” they get, here’s an example that ClimateDepot.com just received:

Hi

I just wanted to let you know what a god**** stupid lying idiot you are. I really hope you are someday put on trial before a world tribunal on charges of ‘crimes against humanity’. I hope they hang you and the rest of the stooges for the fossil fuel industry. You are an evil little f*** and you have your head so far up your a**, you can tickle your tonsils when you wiggle your ears. F*** you, ‘moron-o’.

  1. Just a quick note. Al Gore never said he invented the internet. That was a rumor spread by of all folks liberal reporters who just didn’t like Al or actually doing any research into the things he said. It was simpler to repeat false claims something most reporters have done with climate science.

  2. Much of the “hate mail” that people like Hayhoe and Mann “receive” probably come from the would be Peter Gleiks or ForecastheFacts of the world.

    I find it interesting that the letter writer wants to make skeptics stand before a “world tribunal” not by the civil or criminal court of any sovereign nation.

    Dude hates fossil fuels.

  3. i am presuming that that note to climate depot was hand delivered and not sent by email on a computer built with components shipped around the word, powered by electricity from ……………no i am sure it was hand delivered.

  4. While there will always be an ample supply of unhinged people, part of the problem here is the inflated rhetoric used to describe almost anything. The example at hand is how a degree or two of global temperature rise will end life as we know it. But is this any different from lots of other issues?

    For example, the Mayan calendar is rolling over later this year. When car odometers only went to 100k miles, seeing a rollover was just kinda fun. But now an analogous event is billed as the end of the world.

    97 percent of scientists agree with a couple of pretty pedestrian statements about global temperature and this is reported as 97% agree that the world’s about to end.

    In US politics, I’m hearing more and more apocalyptic terms used to describe what will happen if so-and-so is elected or reelected.

    It’s sort of as if everyone started TYPING IN ALL CAPS — all the time. Some folks just can’t handle the adrenaline hit from all this rhetoric and the result is an uptick in loonies.

    Of course, part of what the loonies are doing wrong is simply using inflated rhetoric and thinking that’s just normal. Nowadays, it almost is.

  5. Michael Mann and Katharine Hayhoe parade their hate mail to simultaneously display their courage in adversity, and to brand skeptics as foul-mouthed advocates of violence. Funny thing, these notions aren’t gaining traction. Another epic FAIL for the warmists’ public outreach initiative.
