Metaphor Alert

Now that there seems to be a certain change in the climate of opinion after decades of ecopalytic hysteria, and Michael Mann’s hockey stick has a bad case of ED, my fellow “climate denier” James Delingpole suggests it might be time for the global warm-mongers to face a Climate Nuremberg. He takes the precaution of adding:

But please note, all you slower trolls beneath the bridge, that when I say Climate Nuremberg I use the phrase metaphorically.

As someone currently being sued by the world’s most litigious fantasy Nobel laureate over use of the phrase “tree-ring circus,” I could have told Delingpole that attempts to explain common literary devices would cut no Antarctic ice with this crowd. And sure enough, the shrieking ninnies at Climate Progress are having none of it.
