A made-up word used by people who purport to be climate change 'skeptics' (all while missing the point of skepticism is not to mindlessly debate, but rather make informed decisions based on available information) to describe anyone who claims to assert a relative degree of confidence that climate change is credible as a theory and is happening.
Conveniently, the term also serves the purpose of demonstrating the users contempt for language, in addition to scientific consensus.
If men are from Mars and women from Venus, generally speaking, then the Crikey.com.au people and their fellow warmenists are from a dark planet way outside our or indeed any solar system.
Gullible, scientificially illiterate, unthinking acolyte and zombie-fied propagandist of the Religion of Anthropogenic Global Warming. One who takes direct orders from High Priest King of Idiocy, Albert J. Gore. One who puts the "mental" in environmentalism. Historical inheritors of those who believed that King Canute could hold back the tides and that the wolf would eat the moon unless their first-born daughter's virginity was sacrificed to the local shaman.
There are some things so blasphemous now that a devout global warmenist cannot allow his ears to be polluted with such filth...environmentalist "guru" David Suzuki stormed out of a Toronto AM640 radio interview with host John Oakley because Oakley dared to suggest that global warming might not be the “totally settled issue” Suzuki insisted it was.
