On the Manne gang of frauds...


I'll tell you why ....

It's really as simple as this... not everyone bows to self proclaimed authority. There remains in this world people who actually consider the reasons a self proclaimed authority makes declarations and those same people are often capable of spotting the flaws in a story.

There are suckers in this world and there are people who dislike being used ... ie, Not Suckers.

Every con game has a theme and the need to stick to that theme is paramount to the fraudster.
When a group of people are won over by a con they become fanatic about it.
When a fraudster has his army of fanatics in play the fraudster(s) will never allow themselves to be questioned. Instead, the fanatics are relied upon to derail those who are questioning the game.

The fanatics wage the war of words on behalf of the fraudsters and manipulators. One of the weapons they  have in their quiver of crooked arrows is the LABEL. The only purpose of the label is to provide a simple distraction to keep the otherwise uninformed or uninterested from considering the point of view that they fear being considered.

What is a "denier"?  In the matter of the climate science fraud it is synonymous with Not a Sucker.

BTW - On the matter of people like Bill McKibben who writes:

"The planet does indeed have an enemy – one far more committed to action than governments or individuals. Given this hard math, we need to view the fossil-fuel industry in a new light. It has become a rogue industry, reckless like no other force on Earth. It is Public Enemy Number One to the survival of our planetary civilization …"

This is what the fanatics do....
