Greenie Awards



The energy / climate discourse has reached such advanced levels of absurdity that a group of reasonable persons has decided to present "achievement" awards mirrored on the Academy Awards.

The categories that we will be recognizing are listed below.

Please add to the conversation in Twitter using the following hashtag: #GreenieAwards

Feel free to:

   a) Propose more categories and
   b) Nominate whom you think should win in each category

Yes, all this is somewhat tongue in cheek but it is time to have some fun at the expense of the doom and gloomers.

Enjoy!

Categories:

  • "So called scientist of the year."
  • Most anti-scientific hashtag.
  • Most egregious death threat.
  • Best supporting logical fallacy.
  • Worst example of "professed" beliefs.
  • Silliest consensus claim.
  • Most tilted temperature chart.
  • Worst activist commercial.
  • Most egregiously tortured statistic.
  • Most unserious meme.
  • Worst publicity stunt.
  • Most destructive national leader.
  • Stupidest hashtag.
  • Most fallacious statement by an alleged scientist.
  • Most ridiculous activist
  • Worst NGO director.
  • Most destructive "climate" stunt.

The jury naming the "winners" in each category will be composed of:

@ImaBannedd
@intrepidwanders
@SlagOffTwits
@TANSTAAFL23
@doyleclan1
@luisbaram

The year is still young, so let's get to work, have some fun and help bring some sanity to the energy / climate discourse!

Remember to use the #GreenieAwards hashtag.

Thank you very much!
