Just in case you haven’t gotten your fill of denialist delirium over the last couple of days, I’ll lock horns – briefly - with third-string conservatarian chatterbox Debra J. Saunders. (And yes, since you asked, I do enjoy shooting fish in barrels and taking candy from babies).
If there is a consensus, there should be no deniers.Case closed. And if you’re some kinda fancy-pants elitist who imagines that consensus and unanimity are two different things, all I have to say to you is, this is why you keep losing elections.
Furthermore, and notwithstanding:
I marvel at those who consider themselves to be in sync with the sage voices of science when it comes to global warming, then argue that America can reduce greenhouse gases with better light bulbs and hydrogen fuel cells.Indeed. How could using 60% less energy possibly reduce greenhouse gases? No one believes in pipe dreams like that, except for dirty fucking hippies and commie dead-enders.
In other news, soy products will turn your kids queer. I advise you to give 'em plenty of these, instead.
UPDATE: The Boston Herald reports on Iran's Holocaust Denial Hootenanny:
The Tehran conference was touted by participants and organizers as an exercise in academic freedom and a chance to openly consider whether 6 million Jews really died in the Holocaust, away from Western taboos.... It gathered 67 writers and researchers from 30 countries, most of whom argue that either the Holocaust did not happen or that it was vastly exaggerated.If there are deniers, then there's no consensus on the Holocaust. Right, Debra?
