Denialcore: A Thoughtful Discussion Of The Cases For And Against Anthropogenic Global Warming

There's a new sound, the newest sound around. It's the strangest sound that you have ever heard. Not like a wild boar or a jungle lion's roar -- it isn't like the cry of any bird. But there's a new sound; it's deep down in the ground, and everyone who listens to it panics, because this new, new sound so deep under the ground is the sound that's made by hardcore global warming denial fanatics.

It may be that, as Basil suggested, some denialcore musicians are turning to an ambient sound to make denialism less "easily identifiable as socially counter-productive." Brown Bin would be an example.

"A Thoughtful Discussion Of The Cases For And Against Anthropogenic Global Warming" appears to have been produced in 2005, by the same people as this.

The message, here, is the medium: classic global warming denialcore. Like global warming denial itself, "A Thoughtful Discussion..." is hideous, incoherent, and not worth hearing except by those whose senses are already so blunted as to still deny the evidence of anthropogenic climate change in 2008.

PLAY LOUD
