Why They're Called Warming "Alarmists"

Stanford prof Stephen Schneider once pushed "global cooling." But now, he supports the "hockey stick" depiction of supposedly rising temperatures (though widely discredited), and thus the necessity of policies that would slow global warming. But, since "Climategate" and the revelations about errors in the IPCC's report, he's multiplied his fears:
"I have hundreds" of threatening emails, Stephen Schneider, a climatologist at Stanford University in California, told Tierramérica.

He believes scientists will be killed over this. "I'm not going to let it worry me... but you know it's going to happen," said Schneider, one of the most respected climate scientists in the world. "They shoot abortion doctors here."
What Schneider's really worried about is investigations into falsifying data. (And, last I recall, liberal bloggers were calling for the execution of warming skeptics.) But playing the "victim" card beats fact-checking any day.

Another loony-left whackjob who's projecting his inner demons onto the skeptics who dare question his fitness (well, the fitness of his pet-theories-unto-religion self-righteousness) to dominate us...
