It is interesting that proponents of global warming (or “global climate change”) tell us that (a) there is a consensus, which is false, and (b) that it is not a political movement, which is also false. Those of us who believe in the free speech of “global warming deniers” are bullied along with the scientists who do say that humans are not the cause of global warming, which is inconsequential or even nonexistent.
In December 2006, Heidi Cullen, the “climate expert” at The Weather Channel, said:
Meteorologists are among the few people trained in the sciences who are permitted regular access to our living rooms. And in that sense, they owe it to their audience to distinguish between solid, peer-reviewed science and junk political controversy. If a meteorologist can’t speak to the fundamental science of climate change, then maybe the AMS shouldn’t give them a Seal of Approval. Clearly, the AMS doesn’t agree that global warming can be blamed on cyclical weather patterns. It’s like allowing a meteorologist to go on-air and say that hurricanes rotate clockwise and tsunamis are caused by the weather. It’s not a political statement…it’s just an incorrect statement.
I agree with every meteorologist who says the topic of global warming has gotten too political. But that’s why talking about the science is so important!
It appears that global warming is not a consensus among meteorologists because she felt the need to speak up on this. It is also political because she wanted to have a kind of purge against those meteorologists who dared to go against the favored view!
More recently, free speech has been blatantly threatened with stronger measures: Jail. Politicians (who often should be jailed for tangible crimes) should be imprisoned for denying global warming. Using “science” as a tool for bullying is another sign of the rising neo-fascism. Say what those in control want to hear or suffer the consequences. David Suzuki, who referred to humans as “maggots”, is active in the war on humans.
Left-wing extremism has a home at PBS – and that home, to be specific, is the set of Moyers & Company. Host Bill Moyers kicked off Sunday’s episode with a flashback to the previous week’s broadcast, in which scientist and environmental activist David Suzuki had announced that he believes society should literally punish politicians who don’t believe in global warming.
This is what Suzuki told Moyers:
