A peek into the minds of alarmists. Paranoid delusions seem to be the rule rather than exception to these people. Here is a perfect case study for such mental disease.
Underneath every bed,
behind every door,
lurks unquestionable evil and certain doom.
SOME INDETERMANENT AND OBSCURE BOOGEY MAN!!!!!
As we all know, the alleged death threats to alarmist climatologists were, well, simply invented. We should expect this from the alarmist camp. After all, the entire issue is an invented death threat. Last week we learned they were pretty much invented. But, there was one lingering question.
In a six-page ruling made last week, Mr Pilgrim found that 10 of 11 documents, all emails, “do not contain threats to kill” and the other “could be regarded as intimidating and at its highest perhaps alluding to a threat”.
It seems there could have actually been a threat of harm is some vague manner. But, the email in question wasn’t the threat, but rather relating events which may have been a threat.
Here’s the email in question…..(emphasis mine) found here.

URGENT AND CONFIDENTIAL.
Looks like we’ve had our first serious threat of physical violence. It has come from a participant in [the] deliberative democracy project last weekend. One of the participants left early after he took exception to my talk about climate science…[Deleted’s] exact words were:
“Moreover, before he left, he came to the Fri dinner and showed other participants his gun licence and explained to them how good a sniper he is. Because he didn’t attend day 2 he will not be allowed to attend the final day. I will be notifying security to be on hand in case he turns up and causes a problem.”
I think the final day is this weekend but I am not sure. Anyway, I’ve asked XXX to brief the VC [vice-chancellor] and the head of security ASAP. The latter will determine whether this should go to the AFP [Australian Federal Police] or not. [It didn’t]. But in the meantime, we should be careful about anyone we don’t know who approaches our offices.
Okay, this would be pretty scary by implication. But, the story doesn’t really seem to be a first hand account. Tony Thomas (author of the linked post) concludes with this….. “How nice, if gun-man Percy would now step forward and give his side of the story?”
I feel I can throw some light on this matter as I am undoubtedly the person who is alleged to have shown my gun licence to people at the dinner. That is not accurate. At the mediocre dinner on the first day I was approached by Dr Maxine Cooper, then the Commissioner for the environment, who recognized me as someone involved in the kangaroo culling program in the ACT which occurs each winter. After politely asking if she could sit next to me she asked me how I had gone in the recent licence test which is challenging. I told her I had topped it with a perfect score and showed her my current culling licence, not gun licence, to prove it. The conversation around the table then drifted around the benefits of eating game meat v the poor fare on offer.

Hilarious. Do these people know there are medications for this disorder? I’m told therapy can help as well. Should we start a fund of some sort to help these poor people through what must be a very difficult time of mental anguish?
