NI Enviro minister calls alarmist views "hysterical psuedo-religion"

When was the last time you heard an elected Minister say anything like this?

"Reasoned debate must replace the scaremongering of the green climate alarmists."
Those words were said by Northern Ireland's Environment Minister Sammy Wilson.
The Environment Minister Sammy Wilson has angered green campaigners by describing their view on climate change as a "hysterical psuedo-religion".


Mr Wilson said he refused to "blindly accept" the need to make significant changes to the economy to stop climate change.

"The tactic used by the "green gang" is to label anyone who dares disagree with their view of climate change as some kind of nutcase who denies scientific fact," he said.
Right on cue, the greens said Wilson was "like a cigarette salesman denying that smoking causes cancer". I like how the lefties always stoop to character assassination when they encounter a skeptic, but never, ever ever offer to debate the science.

Well they can't offer any scientific response, so they have to resort to the ad hominem attack, as sure sign that you are beaten.
