Climate Alarmists Want to Punish Those Who Do Not Agree with Them

In the wake of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, many climate alarmists, including journalists from the Outline and the Nation, are calling for the punishment and imprisonment of climate ‘deniers’. Judith Curry, a retired Georgia Tech professor, argued that Irma, which hit Florida as a Category 4 hurricane on Saturday, was not related to global warming. Marc Morano of Climate Depot says that the increase in vitriol is a sign that the global warming narrative is losing steam.  He says the warming theory is increasingly challenged by record numbers of polar bears, no acceleration of sea level, the absence of temperature rise, no increase in extreme weather, and public loss of interest in the topic. -GEG

Calls to punish global warming skepticism as a criminal offense have surged in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, but it hasn’t discouraged climate scientists like Judith Curry.

A retired Georgia Tech professor, she argued on her Climate Etc. website that Irma, which hit Florida as a Category 4 hurricane on Saturday, was fueled in large part by “very weak” wind shear and that the hurricane intensified despite Atlantic Ocean temperatures that weren’t unusually warm.

That is the kind of talk that could get policymakers who heed her research hauled before the justice system, if some of those in the climate change movement have their way.

“Climate change denial should be a crime,” declared the Sept. 1 headline in the Outline. Mark Hertsgaard argued in a Sept. 7 article in the Nation, titled “Climate Denialism Is Literally Killing Us,” that “murder is murder” and “we should punish it as such.”

The suggestion that those who run afoul of the climate change consensus, in particular government officials, should face charges comes with temperatures flaring over the link between hurricanes and greenhouse gas emissions.

“In the wake of Harvey, it’s time to treat science denial as gross negligence — and hold those who do the denying accountable,” said the subhead in the Outline article, written by Brian Merchant.

If there is a climate change narrative that is caused by human activity then it might very well be a result of the manipulative group that includes scientists involved in the engineering of weather! These are destructive people capable of manipulating weather with scientific means involving chemical and electrical methods that disrupt atmospheric conditions resulting in foreseen and unforeseen effects. Who is monitoring them??

God is in control over His creation! Rather you listen to Him than to Al Gore.
