Wingnut Dictionary - Klimate Khange Kool-Aid

Word of the Day:
Klimate Khange Kool-Aid
Definition:
(1) Term used by right wing bloggers and other right wing fringe groups in the USA to describe the discipline within scientific study referred to as "Climate Science" (2) a clever inference to imply that Climate Scientists are similar to the racist right wing populist, anti-immigrant, anti-government, anti-science and anti-religious minority rights group of the same initials, i.e., the Ku Klu Klan, which was popular during the 1920's. (3) Phrase used by old men seen yelling at clouds for no apparent reason.
(1) Goddamn it! A small Cabal of Uber-scientists are using Klimate Khange Kool-Aid to perpetrate the great hoax known to mankind in order to implement global socialism, bicycle sharing programs in Denver and the UN's Agenda 21 which will force patriotic real americans to live in "hobbit homes" in designated "human habitation zones". Goddamn Klimate Khange Kool-Aid!

(2) The Economist is a schizophrenic magazine, but that’s one reason to read it. It is so obviously superior to Time and Newsweek in its erudition and depth, which is all the more impressive as most of its stories are written anonymously, a welcome contrast to the stuffed-up ego bylines of the American journalists who parade themselves on TV and the high paid lecture circuit.

One glaring flaw is that The Economist does seem at times to have had an extra helping of the Klimate Khange Kool-Aid. I was told once by one of their Washington correspondents that this stemmed from an edict from the owners and senior editors in charge back in London. (And their U.S. coverage sometimes partakes of an “oh those silly colonials” tone. We’ll save that for another time.)
Context of Klimate Khange Kool-Aid within American Politics:
Within Right Wing Mythology, i.e., wingnut mythology, it is generally believed as fact that Anthropogenic Global Warming is a hoax and is being perpetrated by an international conspiracy made up of the lowliest bureaucrats and researchers to the highest world leaders and super tricksy Scientists. Yet despite all the protests by leading Right Wingers, Sean Hannity Foxnews Specials and blog posts, the Global-Global Warming Conspiracy just keeps growing larger. This creates a condition of helplessness felt by right wingers thereby leading to evermore strident and shrill rhetoric such as comparing Scientists to the Klan to combat the "Hoax."
Solutions to Klimate Khange Kool-Aid Delusion Syndrome:
There is no known solution to address the role of conspiracy theory infecting fringe groups in American Politics. Such is the case with Klimate Khange Kool-Aid delusion syndrome. However it is thought by a growing consensus that FEMA run re-education camps offer the best approach to treat those afflicted with this syndrome.
