Do global warming deniers deny that they're paranoid?

I think we can all agree that most AGW deniers believe there's some sort of conspiracy going on. They usually think climate scientists are fudging data or it's all a hoax to create a carbon tax or something similar. One actually suggested today that the government is going to take our dogs away.

This question is not about whether deniers are right to be paranoid. Sometimes paranoia is justifiable. But I wonder, can deniers admit that they're paranoid, or will they deny that too?

    I'm guessing that they will deny they're paranoid, and I'm also guessing this question will be deleted. Most are paranoid, some are scarily, dangerously paranoid. Some are uneducated, and others are educated but stupid.

    If I were going to ask a question that was going to get deleted, I'd ask if they were getting stupider. The quality of their questions is about as low today as I've ever seen. I really would like to see some intelligent questions from them, especially ones that don't involve plagiarism.

    EDIT for Eric C: Bradley Fikes is not with the New York Times, he's with the North County Times, a provincial newspaper in northern San Diego county. He used to write for my college newspaper, and wasn't very good there either.

    Do Global Warming Alarmists Deny that they're Defeated and Paranoid?

    I think we can all agree that most AGW Alarmists believe there's some sort of truth in lies,that exposed liars are somehow telling them the truth.

    They usually seem to think that Climate Scientists who have fudged the data to create their own version of the truth is right and that exposing these liars as liars is wrong,or something like that.

    So are you hoping that we will all accept the Theory of AGW which has been accumulated through falsified data and find what seems to be a great deal of joy in being a know it all for many Alarmists in this Doomsday Scenario too Dana? Should we all get rude,debasing,degrading and cruel towards people with opposing Theories like so many of the Alarmists seem to have stooped to being as well,OH GOODY!

    This answer is not about whether Alarmists are right to be in denial. Some denial is just to hard to overcome.But I wonder,can Alarmists admit they've been duped or will some just keep Goose Stepping forever? What's good for the Goose,well you know and if you don't then take a gander! LOL!

    See,I can be a frustrated mean spirited and rude person too Dana!

    It's funny how easily political opinions can snuff out scientific consensus. I'm wondering what would happen if the government suddenly wanted to invest billions of tax dollars into establishing evolution centers/museums in every state and modernized country. I better watch what I say, I don't want to make anyone paranoid.

    I am paranoid when ever the Government or eco-terrorists want to take rights away from the average person. Using junk science to "prove" a theory doesn't help either. I mean, when eco-terrorists are against building solar farms in the Sonora desert that raises a lot of questions for me. They also want to shutdown wind farms in certain areas to "protect" wildlife.

    Then there are people like you that want to bankrupt the United States and give money to Nations that are already getting subsidies.

    Even paranoid people have enemies...lol

    Based on what we have found out now about the quality of the "science" coming out of EAU CRU, NASA GISS, Micheal Mann, et al., the New Zealand Environmental Service, and the UN IPCC leadership....I would certainly call it a conspiracy.

    I would love to know what level of collusion is needed for you to call it a conspiracy.

    The simple fact is that the global warming fraud is by definition a conspiracy (conspiracy - noun: concurrence in action; {law} an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act). We know from the leadership of the AGW fraud's own statements that this is the case.

    Do you deny that people conspire and, if so, do you deny that you're delusional?

    Yeah, good point of course they're gonna deny, that's why they're called denyers : D

    Actually I have a hypothesis for their denial, Global Warming skepticism Is like a defense mechanism from their subconscious mind, like when a relative or a close person dies, some people tend to deny it, because it makes them feel better, in the case of death it's OK, we understand it, but this Global Warming skepticism has been going on too far, I think I'm gonna call it "Paranoid Global Warning Skepticism Syndrome".

    It's true, : D

    LoL

    They use to call us paranoid that there was an organized attempt to stifle the global warming debate. Climategate has proved us right. Apart from the global warming cheerleaders everybody else is seeing this as well. Bradley Fikes from the NY times:

    "A few years ago, I accepted global warming theory with few doubts. I wrote several columns for this paper condemning what I thought were unfair attacks by skeptics and defending the climate scientists.

    Boy, was I naive

    Since the Climategate emails and documents revealed active collusion to thwart skeptics and even outright fraud, I’ve been trying to correct the record of my earlier foolishness. In one of those columns, I even wrote: “And see Real Climate (www.realclimate.org) for global warming science without the political spin.”

    In fact, Real Climate was and is nothing more than the house organ of global warming activists, concerned more with politics than with science.

    My mistake was assuming only the purest of motives of the global warming alarmists, while assuming the worst of the skeptics. In fact, the soi-disant moralists of the global warming movement can also exploit their agenda for profit.

    Climategate jolted me into confronting the massive fraud and deception by top global warming scientists, who were in a position to twist the peer-review process in their favor, and did so shamelessly.

    Yet still most media reports desperately minimize Climategate, saying that it doesn’t taint the massive research supporting global warming theory. To them I say, how do you know that? Have you investigated how much of that research was published due to the manipulation of these unethical and fraudulent scientists? Do you know how much research that goes against the global warming activist claims was unfairly suppressed?

    Until all this is known, it’s not possible to say with any confidence how much of global warming theory will remain after all the fraud and deceit has been removed. And until climate science is cleaned up, it doesn’t deserve the worship so many in the media unthinkingly give its tainted practitioners."

  • The real denial is that we actually have the power to destroy the world. Which only their god is supposed to have. Right now many of them are already conjuring up interpretations which claim that god is going to destroy the world through global warming.

    Global warming is a hoax. Why else would the same people who claimed that an ice age was iminent turn around a mere 15 years later and say that the earth was warming and was ten years from catastrophe?

    This is fear mongering and all of it was proven wrong.

    In the 70s, your lies about cooling and ice age were wrong.

    In the 80s you changed your story to global warming and said we had 10 years to go. This was proven wrong.

    In the 90s you claimed again, we had 10 to 15 years until catastrophe. Proven wrong.

    Why should anyone believe you and your ilk? You have a terrible track record. But the point is that you have an agenda, and you're just trying to hide behind "science" to bring about your marxist tyranny.

    I know it's not YOU, literally. You're a nobody. But i'm referring to your heroes, the AGW hoaxers, al gore, etc.
