Agriculture Minister Tony Burke called on Opposition Leader Malcolm Turnbull to get Senator Joyce to retract his comments.
"Surely, even Malcolm Turnbull would draw the line at the comparisons that Barnaby Joyce made today," he told reporters in Sydney.
"I would hope that even Malcolm Turnbull would say that comparisons with Nazi Germany ... are out of line and should be publicly refuted and that's something Malcolm should do today."
Joyce was making the valid point that it is the AGW alarmists themselves who first made use of the offensive word "denier" in a cheap attempt to put AGW sceptics in the same boat as Holocaust deniers, and Joyce's comments about "goosestepping" and "eco-totalitarianism" are tame by comparison.
