While browsing Twitter in incognito mode, a comic book style rendering that looked like Judith Curry caught my eye:

It’s from a comic book called Discourses of Climate Delay that looks like it was just published by a German artist named Céline Keller. He has a Twitter account and likes to tweet a lot about climate in English and German. You can download it as a PDF for free. It has lots of comic book style drawings of various climate figures and world leaders and they are all labeled so you can tell who they are. They’re not poorly drawn, but it can be hard to capture an exact likeness in a drawing. The theme seems to be pretty close to that of Michael Mann’s latest book, The New Climate War. He says he got a lot of his information from Desmogblog’s database and it shows. It slimes people like Judith Curry and Bjorn Lomborg while lionizing the likes of Greta Thunberg and Stefan Rahmstorf. There are lots of obscure government and industry people.

At the end of it he has a bingo card of all his topics which I’m not going to list since they are not copy and pasteable. Something that I did not see is any mention of Michael Shellenberger. This seems in keeping with the climate alarmists’ best efforts to ignore the arguments made in his major bestselling book, Apocalypse Never. It’s interesting that Keller and Mann are perfectly willing to attack Lomborg who also has a new book out, False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet. I suspect that Lomborg’s writing has gotten a little repetitive and old hat by now and the alarmists are used to responding to it with well honed talking points. Shellenberger has brought up a lot of new ideas that they can’t handle and have no way of dealing with.
