The Incivil War of Climate Change Heats Up

Rand Simberg

Those of us who have not succumbed to the fashionable hysteria over anthropogenic global warming (aka “climate change”) have long become accustomed to being demonized and threatened by its more enthusiastic adherents, including some of its leading lights. For example, James Hansen, head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, has proposed that the CEOs of coal companies be tried as criminals against humanity. A few years ago, Heidi Cullen of The Weather Channel proposed that anyone in the meteorological business who didn’t bow to her superior wisdom be decertified. More recently, a columnist at Forbes called skeptics equivalent to addicts and declared that they should be “the first to pay” for the coming environmental apocalypse, comparing them to people whose houses should burn down because they refused to pay for the fire department.

    3-Climate change denying voters voted in a climate change denying Canadian prime minister to a majority.
    What needs to be done is to somehow rally the millions and millions of people in the global scientific community to join the dozens of climate change protesters to prove their warnings are not exaggerated. Scientists have doomed kids as well.
