Progressives and climate change fanatics hit the roof over a column in the New York Times written by newcomer Conservative, Bret Stephens.
Stephens first article took on the uncertainty of the science behind climate change. Imagine the heads exploding which is exactly what happened over this particular sentence, “Claiming total certainty about the science traduces the spirit of science and creates openings for doubt whenever a climate claim proves wrong” by those who have no tolerance for those with a different opinion on climate change.
The outrage came at once in a wave of vicious assaults against Stephens and the NYT on Twitter. See a handful of tweets below:

Someone, somewhere, thought a Bret Stephens op-ed was worthy of a push notification. That person was wrong. pic.twitter.com/flLj393At2

Democracy dies in the darkness. So, too, the climate. Thanks, Times, for spreading fake opinion. https://t.co/y22I0b987N

“Fake opinion” dog whistle for the truth is what elitist Marxist ordain it to be meaning non-Progressives views on climate change are falsehoods and contemptible.
Progressives and profiteers of climate change found Stephen’s opinion so contemptible that intolerant Marxist buffoons fell into line and at once began canceling their NYT subscriptions. [We have seen this all before. The endgame is to force the NYT to terminate Stephens.]

I’m on hold with the @nytimes trying to cancel. They told me they’re slammed with people canceling subscriptions because of Bret Stephens.

It is how many days since Stephens posted his column and intolerant loons are still at it.
