Over at Climate Depot, Marc Morano wonders why Andrew Revkin is calling attention to an article linking Holocaust denial to climate denial. He writes:
Whats up with NYTs Revkin? He touts essay: A look at denial, from Holocaust to climate fight by a survivor of Bergen-Belsen & a warmist physics prof. at Brooklyn College Read the Full Article
Is featuring an essay linking Holocaust denial to climate denial, worthy of a shout out on Revkins blog? Excerpt: Denying the Holocaust today, with all the available factual information, requires denying of all of history But most of our history is based on flimsier evidence, and climate change deniers like to say that using scientific theories to explain climate change is not really proof.
In an email exchange prior to Moranos post, I wrote:
It seems to me that Mr. Revkin is cementing his approval of comparisons between holocaust deniers, and climate deniers. That will be the topic of my post on the issue, unless Andy has an alternate credible explanation. Ill give him the benefit of the doubt until I hear from him.
Revkin on the run in Asia as he put it, responded:
I thought it worth noting this post because the writer is a rare breed a physicist and environmental studies professor and also a survivor of the Holocaust. That gives him the right to explore this terrain, whatever you or I think of his conclusion.

Poor logic. Does one have to be a WWI vet to validly discuss WWI? Does one have to have cancer to be able to treat it? Of course not. One does not have to personally experience something to be able to validly discuss it.
Revkin has promoted the AGW/IPCC CO2 political scam from the start. Typical of these socialist democrat frauds, he still clings to the lie despite the release of the email evidence exposing that the DATA WAS COOKED for political and financial reasons. The NT Times is heading for BK. Printing LEFTIST PROPAGANDA is one big contributing factor for their downfall.
I'll call everyone on it. ("I am a 'denier'? So you're calling me a 'Nazi', right? Herr Goebels would be proud of you.")
That was the whole point of using the word “denier” to smear AGWT skeptics.
I agree, and another, more common example is that only women are “allowed” to discuss abortion issues.
The bull shit just keeps rolling out.
