Dave Lindorff is an asshole

“Global Warming will save America from the Right…Eventually”

You probably think I’m kidding, but I’m not.  Thanks to a link from Les I see this column in the Baltimore Chronicle, where Dave Lindorff actually has the testicular fortitude to say some of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard.

So the future political map of America is likely to look as different as the much shrunken geographical map, with much of the so-called “red” state region either gone or depopulated.

There is a poetic justice to this of course. It is conservatives who are giving us the candidates who steadfastly refuse to have the nation take steps that could slow the pace of climate change, so it is appropriate that they should bear the brunt of its impact.

The important thing is that we, on the higher ground both actually and figuratively, need to remember that, when they begin their historic migration from their doomed regions, we not give them the keys to the city…

There will be much work to be done to help the earth and its residents—human and non-human—survive this man-made catastrophe, and we can’t have these future refugee troglodytes, should their personal disasters still fail to make them recognize reality, mucking things up again….

It should be considered acceptable, in this stifling new world, to say, “Shut up. We told you this would happen.”

I snipped some of the more choice quotes from there, and of course I’m going to offer some commentary on them.  Aside from the complete and utter scientific ignorance displayed by Dave when it comes to the effect a rising sea would actually have; he also makes it completely an abundantly clear that if you don’t believe, you aren’t welcome.

Ironically, he also completely ignores what would happen to the rest of world if global warming “wiped out” the red states.  To make it perfectly clear, in that doomsday scenario, billions (that with a “b”) of people around the world would die.  Billions.  But that’s okay to Dave Lindorff, because among those billions would be a lot of conservatives, or so he imagines.

Let me repeat myself.  Humorous or not, Dave Lindorff just said on the public record that he doesn’t mind billions dying, as long as you and I and the other “troglodytes” die with them.

We could talk at length about what a rising sea level would actually do to the midwest, and we could talk for an even longer amount of time about the accuracy of the tidal models used to calculate a rising sea level.  That isn’t the issue here.  Obviously, Dave Lindorff tossed all scientific credibility out the window – what I’m focusing on is his tremendous arrogance and disregard for human life.  I don’t want to say that it’s emblematic of the global warming death cult group, but it’s pretty close.

It also goes as further evidence that global warming extremism (as opposed to rational, scientific analysis of global climate change which is something I am in favor of) really is a religion.  What could be more religious than hoping for a Great Flood to wipe the unbelievers from the earth?


  1. That kind of drivel would be considered “Hate Speech” if a Moonbat hadn’t written it.

    Not that any of the Global Warming BS is going to play out as this guy predicts, but if it did, does he think we Red State refugees would just bow down and submit to our betters and accept what those “On the higher ground” offer. Somehow I doubt it. They being the ones who are already disarmed and all.

  2. Of course, Mister Science Guy here seems to have forgotten that the so-called Redneck Refugees will have all their guns and ammunition packed in the pickup along with the kid’s clothes and whatnot. So he might get the “shut up” part out, but he’ll be too busy bleeding to mention the rest.

  3. This fool’s from BALTIMORE and thinks the Red States will flood, leaving him high and dry? Well, maybe his penthouse apartment would stay dry, but I seem to recall that Baltimore, and nearly every other precint voting DEM in the last election was ocean front property. Didn’t the precict returns map look like a RED COUNTRY, with Blue Parenthesis on both ends?

    Never mind the fact that sea level rise would happen over decades, not minutes, giving the rats of Baltimore, NYFC, et al plenty of time to infest the rest of the country……

  4. He is just one more of the “humans are evil” crowd, that some how get taken seriously some how. The use fear mongering and scare tactics, instead of science and reason. The planet is, let alone American is not going to flood anytime soon, and if it does, humans will have very little, if anything, to do with it.

  5. Perhaps he thinks “North” means “Up” and somehow he is above any sort of flooding that could occur.
