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…
You have to love Leftists, just when you think they said something crazy they kick it up a notch. Add to that their hypocrisy, “the death penalty is murder!” So say they, except when the crime is against one of their pet causes. A man commits a burglary and proceeds to slaughter the family. Do not be harsh to him, he is human and probably grew up poor in a bad home or suffered due to White privilege. But if someone disagrees with us on a thus-far contradictory and unproven scientific hoax theory, we should immediately execute the dirty scoundrel.
