|The anti-science crowd as lions? Michael Mann, noted climate scientist, writes about The Serengeti strategy: How special interests try to intimidate scientists, and how best to fight back. These anti-science climate criminals use ad hominem attacks to confuse the public about the facts of climate change.
If you're in a theatre when a fire breaks out, it's the same situation: Those who recognize the fire and try to alert the other patrons are being attacked as not credible by those who wish to see the theatre burn down and everyone die within. In truth, those who deny the fire are the criminals and deserve to die. But, their goal is to make sure no one believes the idea of a fire. The climate deniers are not trying to help patrons survive. They are simple nefarious agents whose real goal is mass suicide.
