Environmental Magazine Advocates War Crimes Trials For Global Warming Skeptics
Posted by Noel Sheppard on October 11, 2006 - 14:37.
This is pretty extraordinary stuff, folks. The U.S. Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works has just issued a majority statement about an environmental magazine advocating Nuremberg-like war crimes trials for folks that question the existence of man-made global warming:

A U.S. based environmental magazine that both former Vice President Al Gore and PBS newsman Bill Moyers, for his October 11th global warming edition of ?Moyers on America? titled ?Is God Green?? 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 ?bastards? who were members of what he termed the global warming ?denial industry.?

Amazing. The statement continued:

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 bastards -- some sort of climate Nuremberg.?

Gore and Moyers have not yet commented on Grist's advocacy of prosecuting skeptics of global warming with a Nuremberg-style war crimes trial. Gore has used the phrase "global warming deniers" to describe scientists and others who don't share his view of the Earth's climate. It remains to be seen what Gore and Moyers will have to say about proposals to make skepticism a crime comparable to Holocaust atrocities.

This invective has drawn criticism even from folks that support global warming theories:

The use of Holocaust terminology has drawn the ire of Roger Pielke, Jr. of the University of Colorado's Center for Science and Technology Policy Research. ?The phrase ?climate change denier? is meant to be evocative of the phrase ?holocaust denier,?? Pielke, Jr. wrote on October 9, 2006. ?Let's be blunt. This allusion is an affront to those who suffered and died in the Holocaust. This allusion has no place in the discourse on climate change. I say this as someone fully convinced of a significant human role in the behavior of the climate system,? Pielke, Jr. explained.

Apparently, this is not a new affectation:

The article Global Warming: The Chilling Effect On Free Speech last week in Spiked Online addresses this new found penchant by environmentalists and some media members to charge skeptics of human caused catastrophic global warming with ?crimes against humanity? and urge Nuremberg-style prosecution of them.

Yikes. So, folks that disagree with junk science should now be tried for voicing their opinions? Truly unbelievable.

Truly unbelievable.


What's it called and where is this magazine?

Are you sure this isn't just some kind of satire, and the newsbusters blog which claims it's "exposing and combating liberal media bias" has failed to see the joke.

GRIST MAGAZINE

I don't know why they were not more explicit about the source.
I don't think they are joking.

I think global warning is a problem but i also think the earth is a powerful thing, i once herd on an aboriginal program that the earth knew when the fish needed to regenerate themselves from beign caught and therefore the earth gave them time to do so. I think global warming can also be like this were the earth or a force will provide for the mistakes of man. But I also agree with the problem of global warming, i dont necisarily feel its conspired but happend with man over time.

This is just a sample of what is to come. Not to worry, though. The coming massive depression will straighten their a$$e$ out. On the other hand, is it too late to do something about the "global" warming on the other planets in our solar system ?
