National Post reported David Suzuki has called for political leaders to be thrown in jail for ignoring the science behind climate change.
Since GW has become a sort of "religion" of the west, I guess the crime would be heresy, but heresy was defined by St. thomas as "a species of infidelity in men who, having professed the faith of Christ, corrupt its dogmas", We have never professed a belief in Global Warming, so I guess this is more like Muslims who believe anyone that does not accept Islam is an infidel, and most be converted, subjugated, or killed..... Addressing the McGill Business Conference on Sustainability, hosted by the Faculty of Management, Dr. Suzuki's wide-ranging speech warned against favoring the economy to the detriment of the ecology -- the tarsands in Northern Alberta being his prime example.... "You have lived your entire lives in a completely unsustainable period," he told students and fans. "You all think growth and [climate] change is normal. It's not."
Yes it is. But I don't think you should be put in jail because you don't realize it..... "What I would challenge you to do is to put a lot of effort into trying to see whether there's a legal way of throwing our so-called leaders into jail because what they're doing is a criminal act," said Dr. Suzuki, a former board member of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. "It's an intergenerational crime in the face of all the knowledge and science from over 20 years.".... When asked for further comment, Dan Maceluch, a spokesman for Dr. Suzuki, said that he did not mean the statement to be taken literally. "He's not advocating locking people up, but he is pulling his hair out."
So now global warming is causing David Suzuki to go bald?????Gaius blogged Green jackboots are still jackboots. The current departure from normal snow cover for the entire northern hemisphere is here . Note the blue areas and how large they are. Here is the current southern hemisphere sea ice anomaly . Note that is is quite a lot higher than "average." Here is the current northern hemisphere ice. Here's a comparison of northern ice areas with historical records for February 6, 1980 and the same date this year. Pay particular attention to the west coast of Greenland.
Michael Goldfarb blogged That's certainly one way to achieve consensus.
Hube blogged A member of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association!! Can you friggin' believe THAT?? How so perfectly Orwellian!! Actually it fits perfectly into the "progressive" paradigm. Free speech is not truly free unless it conforms to the "proper" belief system and ideology, which must be, of course, "progressive."
Curt blogged It’s a crime to question the bad science of man-made global warming now. Now you can understand why I call them environazi’s, because that is exactly where they are going with this. To throw someone in jail for pointing out that their science is just plain unproven is ludicrous. But to that leftist at least it all makes sense.
Maybe they will go after The Climate Skeptic for making this great 10 minute compilation of his longer 60 minute version about the science of global warming, and how unreliable it is:
Gina Cobb blogged If Suzuiki keeps it up, soon someone will propose jailing scientists for allowing politics to cloud their scientific judgment, or for ignoring the ruinous economic effects of their proposals. Guess who will be first in line for the Big House?
Wretchard blogged It's now possible to commit a crime by simply holding an inappropriate attitude.... Not only are speech codes being created all over the world, but cut-down languages are being legislated into existence. George Orwell describing the synthetic dialect of 1984, Newspeak, described the goal of the new languages: to reduce the scope of thought.
Noel Sheppard blogged It appears the witch hunt has moved from calling non-believers "deniers" to the burning phase, which is comically ironic if you think about it long enough.
