I wonder, should it be a crime to call for all sorts of anthropogenic climate change measures and laws to fail to practice what they preach? Should it be a crime for members of the Cult of Climastrology to call for measures on Other People? Should it be a crime for a Warmist to use fossil fuels in their own lives? Na. But they sure want to criminalize what they consider Wrongthink (via Anthony Watts)
Dr Jarrod Gilbert: Why climate denial should be a criminal offence
There is no greater crime being perpetuated on future generations than that committed by those who deny climate change. The scientific consensus is so overwhelming that to argue against it is to perpetuate a dangerous fraud. Denial has become a yardstick by which intelligence can be tested. The term climate sceptic is now interchangeable with the term mindless fool.
Fraud, huh? Aping the latest duckspeak from the Cult of Climastrology.
Meta studies show that 97 per cent of published climate scientists agree that global warming is occurring and that it is caused by human activities. The American Association for the Advancement of Science compared it to the consensus linking smoking to cancer. The debate is over, yet doubt continues.
Trotting out 97% consensus is fraud, since the studies are frauds. Plus, consensus is not science.
The worst of these problems will impact more greatly on generations to come, but to ignore them now is as unconscionable as it is selfish. It ought be seen as a crime.
Of course, the writer, Dr Jarrod Gilbert, who practices that deep science disciple of “sociology”, isn’t fool enough to delve into specific criminal penalties
One way in which everyday crime can be discouraged is to ensure that “capable guardians” are around to deter criminal activity. When it comes to climate change, the capable guardians are educated members of the public who counteract the deniers.
You know what he really wanted to write was to stick skeptics in jail or re-education camps. Or kill them. Many Warmists have thought that murder for Wrongthink is a great idea.
There may be differing opinions on what policies to pursue, but those who deny that climate change exists ought be shouted down like the charlatans that they are. Or better yet, looked upon with pitiful contempt and completely ignored.
Merriam-Webster defines charlatan as “a person who falsely pretends to know or be something in order to deceive people.” Dictionary.com goes with “a person who pretends or claims to have more knowledge or skill than he or she possesses; quack.” Would not a person who says there is a Big Problem but refuses to change their own life to match the solutions they recommend be implemented by governmental force be a charlatan? Yes.
