And in other news, Naomi Klein is still a fucking idiot

I thought global climate change was supposed to be, you know...global, but apparently not...

(remember, Klein is even stupider than her inspiration Noam Chomsky, who himself is something of a dishonest idiot.)

...conspiracy theorist Naomi Klein has come up with a new one: People who are skeptical of the climate change hypothesis don't care about climate change because it will only damage countries where people of color live.

"If we refuse to speak frankly about the intersection of race and climate change, we can be sure that racism will continue to inform how the governments of industrialized countries respond to this existential crisis."

Plus - Now this is really remarkable Klein has an article in the Globe and Mail that is ostensibly supposed to be about the tragic death of a young Cree woman who died in Toronto from falling from the balcony of a downtown Toronto condo under very suspicious circumstances. So naturally, Klein wrote an idiotic, self-serving piece about oil sands, fracking and an attack on the federal government (for which she's getting nailed in the comments).

I really wonder; well actually I don't as it is pretty obvious, who, the idiot really is? And of course your comments have to be approved by you, that certainly isn't surprising.

Who else would be approving comments on my blog, Margaret? You think I should commission an independent 3rd party?

I'll bet you were quite the wit on your short bus.
