Politard poll: how offensive is this article?


Michael Mann, of global warming "hockey stick" fame, is pissed about it. Here are the first 3 sentences:

quote:

Should Michael Mann be given the electric chair for having concocted arguably the most risibly inept, misleading, cherry-picking, worthless and mendacious graph – the Hockey Stick – in the history of junk science?

Should George Monbiot be hanged by the neck for his decade or so's hysterical promulgation of the great climate change scam and other idiocies too numerous to mention?

Should Tim Flannery be fed to the crocodiles for the role he has played in the fleecing of the Australian taxpayer and the diversion of scarce resources into pointless projects like all the eyewateringly expensive desalination plants built as a result of his doomy prognostications about water shortages caused by catastrophic anthropogenic global warming?

I don't find much of anything offensive, but I certainly consider it unprofessional and in poor taste.

It's an opinion piece. I think it's classless, but sometimes that an element of style.

Not offensive.

Pretty stupid to use hypothetical extreme violence when trying to attack the other side for flawed theories.

Just attack the theories not the idiot who has bamboozled the masses.

i didn't find it offensive, but i think dellingpole should apologize anyway, to avoid being marginalized like a loon rather than an effective critic

I find the article tongue in cheek matching the extreme hyperbole of agw.

I wish he'd asked the question as a multiple choice:

A. electric chair
B. red hot sword up the ass
C. sex with Rosanne Barr in front of George Bush, Mitt Romney and Michelle Bachman
