In second place on this year's list was "Global Warming Denier," for someone who believes that climate change has moved from scientific theory to dogma.
"There are now proposals that 'global warming deniers' be treated the same as 'Holocaust deniers: professional ostracism, belittlement, ridicule and, even, jail," Payack said.
I really don't like my questioning of global warming being equated with holocaust or genocide deniers. The Jewish Holocaust is an established historical fact. The mass murders of millions of human beings is well documented. The scientific evidence for global warming however is in flux. There are scientists on both sides with competing studies and computer models. I am well versed on how to read and analyze scientific papers. Right now, I am skeptical about the highly speculative data on global warming. There is just no way you can compare my thoughtful analysis of global warming theorys with some one who is delusional or contemptible enough to question the Jewish Holocaust.
