Most Ridiculous Things Conservative Media Neocons Said In 2015

"I’m proud to say that I come in at number 6 (though obviously I would have preferred higher) with my statement that alarmist climate scientists are “a bunch of talentless low lives who cannot be trusted.”
In retrospect I wish to apologise for that sentence.
What I really should have said is that these are a bunch of lying, cheating, scum-sucking, bottom-feeding, third-rate tosspots who don’t even deserve the name  “ scientists ”   because  what  they  practise  isn’t  really  science  but  data-fiddling, cherry-picking, grant-troughing, activism-driven propaganda.

Update: Bob Carter has since sadly exited stage left, hopefully not pursued by the bear +

Sick Warmists Gloat Over Death Of Climate Hero Bob Carter
By JAMES DELINGPOLE         Breitbart              22  Jan   2016
Sick Green activists have been gloating over the death of Bob Carter, the heroic climate sceptic geologist who died of a heart attack earlier this week.

Now back to The  Delingpole Year in Review:

"Posterity will grant them about as much respect as we now accord the 17th century quacks who bled their patients using leeches,
Monckton: "I'm a member of Parliament. I've cured HIV" Lordship has claimed to discover a cure for HIV, Muscular Sclerosis, and the common cold ...
 Einstein diatribe composer Willie Soon 
"or  the  early  20th  century  German scientists who helped Hitler compose his diatribe  against  the  discredited Jewish  science  of  Einstein...

Really, if none of them ever published another paper in their lives and all their grant funding dried up at midnight tonight, the cause of climate science would not suffer one jot – and the world would become a much better (and richer) place. Having read through all the other items on the Media Matters list, I can’t find much fault with any of them either... 

If I were an eco-Nazi I would seriously think about killing myself at this point. "

But first, a  warm body funeral oration by James Delingpole
