I bet none of them have ever heard of HGTTG, much less read it!.
I doubt they would understand irony.

yes and in the irony free post structuralist void these clowns inhabit, as the true fascists, their claim is victimhood and they quote Martin Niemöller as a justification.
I believe most of them are likely to end up on the Golgafrincham Ark Fleet Ship B.

From ABC News

QUOTE
A spat has broken out between a university debating club and student Liberals over a debate about assassinating political leaders who don't act on climate change.

The Society of Tasmanian University Debating has defended the topic of its gathering on Monday, but it has been accused of "insinuating violence as a means to solve political issues".

"In a democracy, freedom of speech must be respected, not abused, and political debate should always remain respectful," the University of Tasmania Liberal Students group said.

The debaters, however, said they were "indescribably frustrated" at the criticism and that the Liberals had missed the point of debating.

"In learning to do that, you learn to dissociate someone's oratory skills and how good their argument sounds prima facie from whether they are right.

"The point is to learn to argue things that are morally wrong, so when you hear people arguing things and they are convincing, you are immunised against them being convincing or also being wrong."



Can you imagine what would have happened if the liberals had put up a topic " that all members of the left should be assasinated".

They could have chosen the topic as "why climate change is all wrong". They could have all argued earnestly against something that they see as morally wrong without the violent undertones.

For a group that professes to be logical, quick thinking, and able to argue that black is white it is not a good look.

Well, thank goodness we have finally reached the point of no return, because now we can all just relax, not worry about trying to save the world, we can stop wasting billions a year on futile "climate saving" pursuits, and get on with just being happy little capitalists.

Fat chance !!

Cheers

The point of no return.

- Robin McKie, The Guardian, December 2, 2018:
As the UN sits down for its annual climate conference this week, many experts believe we have passed the point of no return …

- Amitabh Avasthi, Science, March 17, 2005:
Climate’s Point of No Return … Models suggest that, regardless of human intervention, the oceans will keep fuel­ling global warming and sea levels will continue to rise … (for) 100 years.

- Mich­ael McCarthy, The Indepen­dent, January 16, 2006:
The world has already passed the point of no return for climate change, and civilisation as we know it is now unlikely to survive …

- Ross Gelbspan, Grist, Decem­ber 11, 2007:
Beyond the Point of No Return. It’s too late to stop climate change … Leading scientists — including Raj­endra Pachauri, head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, British ecologist James Lovelock and NASA scientist James Hansen — have declared that hum­anity is about to pass or already has passed a “tipping point” … (for) global warming.

Robert Rohde‏ @RARohde Oct 28 The era of continuous sea ice monitoring from space began 40 years ago with the SMMR on the Nimbus-7 satellite. In this image, I compare the first satellite-based Arctic sea ice map to present conditions 40 years later. Today, we have 28% less sea ice than was originally seen.

Reuters Top News‏Verified account @Reuters 2h2 hours ago Uncover the climate-change crisis beneath the surface of the sea with ‘Ocean Shock’ - launching soon




for the sake of balance, let's ask the question "what happened to fish stocks being over grazed by fisheries?"

just placing the GW monika over a subject, so well studied for cause and effect already, doesnt validate either way, certainly does


defer from those studies and makes them less relevent ....but....is that a good thing

just attributing for the sake of emotive attribution lessens the effort to reverse the depletion of fish stocks

fwiw fish are a leading cause of inflammatory diseases thru diet.....great for dolphins n whales n birds

QUOTE
HOUSTON (Reuters) - New York’s attorney general sued Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N) on Wednesday, alleging that the world’s largest oil company for years misled investors about the risks of climate change regulations on its business.


QUOTE
Exxon and other oil companies including BP Plc (BP.L), Chevron Corp (CVX.N) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.AS) face lawsuits by cities and counties across the United States seeking funds to pay for seawalls and other infrastructure to guard against rising sea levels brought on by climate change.
