Paul McCartney Equates Climate Skeptics With Holocaust Deniers

I guess I won't be posting "Yesterday" any time soon, or any of the great Beatles hits for that matter.

At Fox News, "
McCartney, in Interview, Compares Global Warming Skeptics to Holocaust Deniers":
Sir Paul McCartney just can't let it be.

The former Beatle predicted in an interview that the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico might expedite a move to cleaner, renewable energy sources in the world.

Sir Paul could have stopped while he was ahead, but McCartney went on to compare people who don't believe in global warming to "those who don't believe there was a Holocaust."

"Sadly we need disasters like this to show people," McCartney said in an exclusive interview with The Sun. "Some people don't believe in climate warning -- like those who don't believe there was a Holocaust."

McCartney continued, "But the facts indicate that there's something going on and we've got to be aware of it if we want our kids to inherit a decent world, not a complete nightmare of a planet -- clean, renewable energy is for starters."
Blah, blah ...

The Sun article is here:
"I like Obama... and he’s right to have a go at us for polluting his country."

And recall that this is exactly the kind of stupidity that Melanie Phillips deals with in her book, The World Turned Upside Down: The Global Battle over God, Truth, and Power. Worth it's weight in gold, demonstrated more and more by the day.
