Apparently I am a "Nazi appeaser" now. Yawn.

Nathan Rees reaches deep in the slops bucket:

NSW Premier Nathan Rees compared climate change sceptics to Nazi appeasers as he addressed a roomful of scientists at the Eureka Awards last night…

‘’The threat of climate change is catastrophic. In fact, the current wave of climate change scepticism smacks of 1930s-style appeasement: ‘Hide under the blankets and it will go away’. But it won’t go away.’’

Rees’s sins are two-fold. First, he truly believes that the planet’s climate is now a greater threat than World War 2, even though it hasn’t warned in almost a decade. Second, he slimes those who point out such facts - including many, many scientists far more expert than he - by likening them to appeasers of genocidal killers.

The rest here.
