James Randerson, currently Guardian's environment website editor and formerly Guardian science correspondent and deputy news editor with New Scientist magazine, says that the phrase â€œclimate change deniersâ€ makes more harm than good as it links the climate deniers with Holocaust denial.
Instead he argues that because climate change deniers recklessly and â€œsometimesâ€ deliberately deny established scientific facts a more fitting label for these deniers would be â€œclimate change creationistsâ€:
Although I find the climate change creationist label a pretty good idea I canâ€™t stop thinking that it might not sound bad in the ears of religious fanatics in USA. So, yeah. I think I will continue to label them as climate deniers.
