Enviro-Fascist Show Trials?
It looks like someone has gotten a little freaked out after watching, “The Day After Tomorrow,” one too many times:
“A U.S. based environmental magazine that both former Vice President Al Gore (http://gristmill.grist.org/print/2006/9/19/11408/1106?show_comments=no) and PBS newsman Bill Moyers, for his October 11th global warming edition of “Moyers on America” titled “Is God Green?” (http://www.grist.org/news/maindish/2006/05/09/roberts/index.html) have deemed respectable enough to grant one-on-one interviews to promote their projects, is now advocating Nuremberg-style war crimes trials for skeptics of human caused catastrophic global warming. Grist Magazine’s staff writer David Roberts called for the Nuremberg-style trials for the “b*stards” who were members of what he termed the global warming “denial industry.”
Roberts wrote in the online publication on September 19, 2006, “When we’ve finally gotten serious about global warming, when the impacts are really hitting us and we’re in a full worldwide scramble to minimize the damage, we should have war crimes trials for these b*stards — some sort of climate Nuremberg.” http://gristmill.grist.org/print/2006/9/19/11408/1106?show_comments=no.”
So, we now have environmentalists demanding Stalinesque show trials for their critics, after which, Global warming dissenters will presumably be executed or imprisoned for disagreeing with people like Al Gore?
Make sure to tune in for next week’s edition of Grist Magazine when they’ll be calling for SUV owners to be placed in gulags right after they finish flogging anyone who refuses to go see, “Earth in the Balance“.
In all seriousness, what do you even say to that sort of insane comment? These people are just getting so far out into Cloud Cuckoo land that you almost have to wonder if anything can snap them back to reality.
