Climate Change: Calling Out the Other Side
I want to call out a left-leaning site today.
This article at ThinkProgress is obnoxious as hell. Basically it argues that the people who were killed by tornadoes in Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi had it coming because they didn’t believe in climate change.
Even if it’s “just snark” as some of the comments there have said, snark is not an appropriate way to respond to people suffering terribly from a natural disaster. Period. This is like a bully on the playground kicking a kid who’s down and saying “Yah, yah, toldja you’d get hurt if you didn’t do like I said.”
ThinkProgress should be ashamed for publishing this. The people who comment there should stand back and consider their own behavior.
