‘Climate Anger': Last Refuge of the Alarmists

  writing for Forbes has a piece titled:

‘Climate Anger': Last Refuge of the Alarmists

Robert begins:

For purveyors of climate alarm, emotional displays of intolerance are increasingly crowding out reasoned argument. But remember the adage, “hate hurts the hater more than the hated.”
It struck home to this blogger because I have recently been subject to displays of intolerance with a reverse claim of creating "hate-posts against some of the famous people that (sic) promote global warming info."

This was on a FaceBook group called hypocritically "Climate Change - an open discussion." The moderator then removed me from the group but then in a cowardly fashion,  continued to smear my name although, as I was removed, had no right of reply.

He said that he had removed me from the group "for portraying serious people promoting climate change in very bad ways..." and then: "I also removed his post where he said he linked them photoshopping themselves at Skeptical Science in a certain way....." The clowns at the paid disinformation site UNSkeptical UNScience (SS) HAD photoshopped themselves in Nazi uniforms as well photoshopping " some of the famous people who promote global warming info" as gladiators:

Anthony Watts, Christopher Monckton, James Delingpole
Hmmmm......when will the CC - an open discussion convenor condemn SS for their "hate-post" against Watts, Monckton and Delingpole?

Previously this cowardly convenor had removed another person who promotes climate change info from his site, fellow Australian Peter Laux. Peter has ridiculed the climate change hoax for years with his $10K challenge:
Peter Laux, Locomotive Engineman from Australia, “will pay $10,000 (AUS) for a conclusive argument based on empirical facts that increasing atmospheric CO2 from fossil fuel burning drives global climate warming.”
The challenge is heading for its 5th birthday. Still not one serious challenge. Peter's money is safe.

As  continues:

Getting Desperate
The impatience and intolerance of the doom-and-gloom crowd must be understood historically and in terms of today’s politics.  
The neo-Malthusians have been errant re the“population bomb” in the 1960s, the running-out-of-resources and global cooling scares in the 1970s, and catastrophic global warming in the late 1980s and 1990s.  
The current elephant-in-the-room for climate alarmists is the “pause” or “hiatus” in global warming.
Green activists have preached that the Earth’s temperature would continue to rise steadily into a global crisis. For most of the 1990s, their model predictions appeared plausible. But global temperatures have slowed considerably since 1998, despite steadily rising levels of carbon-dioxide emissions (the alleged cause of warming).
Bradley points out that distinguished climatologist and professor Judith Curry, at the Congressional hearing testified that recent data “calls into question the conclusion that humans are the dominant cause of recent climate change.”

Bradley concludes:
And so, frustrated climate alarmists are at war with the public, not only the facts. They are crying wolf and preaching disdain in the ignoble quest to raise energy prices, hamper our economy, and make life more difficult for average Americans. All to “save” the climate that doesn’t appear to need saving — and cannot be “saved” by the 196 nations of the world.  
The devout parishioners of climate calamity may label the rest of us as moral degenerates. To this we must respond. There are real here-and-now problems that need your time and dollars. And to the angry: a new cause might bring peace of mind — and spare the household budgets of the rest of us.
