International Journal of Inactivism (now supplanted by Decoding SwiftHack)

If you don't see the conspiracy theory it can't eat you

cite as: F. Bi. 2008. If you don’t see the conspiracy theory it can’t eat you. Intl. J. Inact., 1:81–82

Seen on Manpollo Forums:

[…] I did some fishing and came up with this quote from a Joe Schmoe to whom I sent an email on global warming. […]

Barrack Obama made a comment during the campaign, and I paraphrase “How can we continue to live in comfortable houses at 72degrees, how can we continue to drive SUVs and how can we continue to eat whatever we want and not have the rest of the world hate us”. This is totally socialistic/communistic and scares me to death. […] In his world we would all live in the drab, unhealthy apartments outside of Karlovy Vary in the Czech republic that the Russians built under communism. We would all eat porridge from the same bland pot. […] I am not for this in any form — and I fear this the real agenda of the global warming fanatics — […]

As I was lying in bed trying to get to sleep, I had the image of the scientists at the National Academy all rubbing their hands together in wicked glee thinking, “It won’t be long now, my pets, and we will finally have the power we need to make them all eat porridge out of the same bland pot!” I was laughing so hard, I had tears running down my cheeks. My husband thinks I’m insane, but he thought that before, so it’s no big deal.

And via Long Ago and Not True Anyway, I find another instance of climate conspiracy theory denial (or is it climate conspiracy theory non-denial denial):

Like a medieval religious zealot, Al Gore claims that those who still doubt that global warming is caused by man are the equivalent of those who think the moon landing was faked. This says more about Gore than anyone else. Scientific debate is in fact the exact opposite of lunatic conspiracy theories.
