Calls to punish ‘global warming’ skeptics surge

Climate change denial should be a crime,” declared the headline in the Outline. “It’s time to treat science denial as gross negligence — and hold those who do the denying accountable.”


(Excerpts and paraphrasing from a great Washington Post article)

Climate Denialism Is Literally Killing Us,” argued Mark Hertsgaard in the Nation. “Murder is murder” and “we should punish it as such.”

Brad Johnson, executive director of Climate Hawks Vote, posted a set of “climate disaster response rules,” including “put officials who reject science in jail.”

Anthony Watts, of the Watts Up With That blog, listed some of the threats to criminalize skeptics under the headline, “Hate on Display — climate activists go bonkers over #Irma and nonexistent climate connection.”

“(However) with Irma ranked 7th, and Harvey ranked 18th, it’s going to be tough for climate alarmists to try connecting these two storms to being driven by CO2/global warming,” said Mr. Watts. “But they’ll do it anyway.”

Climate Depot’s Marc Morano said the heightened vitriol aimed at those who dispute the link between climate change and extreme weather events is a sign that the global warming narrative is losing steam with the public and policymakers.

“Activists have been frustrated with record number of polar bears, no acceleration of sea level, the Pause, no trends or declining trends in extreme weather and the public’s apathy,” said Mr. Morano, whose book “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change” is slated to be released in February.

“Trump has added to all of that, and we are now seeing them blow their gaskets in frustration,” he said.

  1. abc aus RN latenightlive show had some talking head stating that deniers and sceptics are all to be dismissed as none of us could actually debate a “climates scientist” for a few minutes with any degree of intelligence
    as obviously only the “selflabelled” ones opinions count
    he also entirely ignored the fact many dissenters DO have science degrees and backgrounds
    good ol aunty and a super biased presenter can do a lot of damage.

  2. just one more attack on free speech and freedom of thought. These are the same people who were constantly telling us that it’s patriotic to be dissenter (this from the great choke artist Hillary Clinton). These are the same people that allegedly support freedom to be and think whatever (just how many genders are they up to now anyway?)

  3. Should this censorship on free speech ever become reality, One should use this law to sue Al Gore for burning off more CO2 than a small town on a yearly basis

  4. Marc Morano who says this shows their desperation. I hope he is right.

    However, with the constant propaganda from the MSM, the deep state federal government, state attorneys generals abusing their powers and activist judges, my fear is that they will succeed and basically take over all of our lives and freedoms.

    Marc Morano and others like him need to put out the truth – that the global warming types are using the pain and suffering of Texas and Florida for their own money and power.

  5. We need someone with money to have a few deceivers charged in a private law suit with crimes against humanity and then get them to show their data in court.

    • I think this happened with Dr. Tim Ball.

      The professor accusing Dr. Ball of ‘climate denial’ did NOT want to provide his evidence data when challenged. He was charged with contempt of court.

  6. Time to start jailing those Global Warming activists who take public funds to produce fake research based upon false and manipulated data sets. This is nothing more than outright fraud, but then they only want to punish those who “disagree” with their biased and falsified research and their “Global Warming Religion.”

  7. Anyone with half a brain can see these people are insane !!

    How does climate denial cause global warming or climate change ????

    They lie incessantly such as this piece of crap Australian’s are relentlessly told we should be ashamed of.

    Australian’s are always being told we have the “biggest carbon footprint” of any nation per capita.

    I say reality says this is bullshit –

    The average Australian home consumes less than half the electricity the average US home consumes annually ! The figures don’t lie.

    Anyone who says Australians drive more than Americans has obviously never seen any TV showing LA’s or New York’s
    freeway or surrounding area traffic.

    Combined these 2 large metropolitan areas surrounding the respective city areas have about the same population as the whole of Australia.

    I’m not criticizing the US – I’m claiming the insane like Mark Hertsgaard are so brainwashed they will say or do anything to bolster their faith.

    • Just look at the oco-2 data to see just how big the lie is. The Australian continent is the worlds third largest co2 sink

    • Early on, around the time of the Kyoto agreement Australia decided to take the CO2 output from coal exported to Japan and Sth Korea and add it to their own tally as a way to keep those two countries as customers. Australia never signed up but Japan and Sth Korea did.

  8. Better punish those globull warming sceptics quickly. This winter is shaping up to break cold records across the northern Hemisphere.

    Time to start jailing those Global Warming activists who take public funds to produce fake research based upon false and manipulated data sets.

    Then start with NOAA and NASA, and every Anglo Saxon Met Office, they are all eyeball deep in data manipulation.
    The crime is fraud in Public Office.
    Without the data manipulation of four major Government owned data sets the entire edifice of AGW falls flat on its face and the MSM looses climate as a political whipping boy.

  10. It’s becoming ever more abundantly clear that “Torquemada” had nothing on the “punish the dis-believer” crowd. They would have felt right a home as “inquisitors”.

  11. The Left will scream “freedom of speech, thought and conscience” when it comes to things like porn and pot.

    But freedom of speech in politics, religion, and social thought? Always, they try to make dissent illegal.

  12. We are witnessing the death of truth. It is only going to get worse. There will be courts where the science behind skeptics will simply be dismissed as fake. The activists are marching. The activists will get some scheme together that will be resistant to alternative heresies. The science will be undisputed. There will be absolutely no going over established science. If any of you think there will be forums for debate, you are dangerously deluded.
