Climate Change Alarmists "Thugs"

Tom Bowler at Libertarian Leanings has commented on the subject prior to this.

The Strength of the Climate Change Argument
Senator, Steve Fielding, decided to vote
his country's climate-change legislation. It seems a growing number
of Australian politicians, scientists and citizens have their doubts on the
science of human-caused global warming. Fortunately, the number of skeptics in
The U.S. is growing as well, and they include Joanne Simpson.
'The number of
skeptics, far from shrinking, is swelling. Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe now counts
more than 700 scientists who disagree with the U.N. -- 13 times the number who
authored the U.N.'s 2007 climate summary for policymakers. Joanne Simpson, the
world's first woman to receive a Ph.D. in meteorology, expressed relief upon her
retirement last year that she was finally free to speak "frankly" of her
Please note my emphasis in the excerpt above. Once again we
get a glimpse of the global warmists' argument. Get with the program, or
else. I don't know what might have happened had she spoken out before her
retirement, but whatever it was, Ms. Simpson didn't want to risk it.
Clearly, the science of global warming is the science of coersion. The
global warmists are thugs, and a vote in favor of any legislation to fight
global warming is an invitation to more thuggery.
There are scientific
arguments against human-caused global warming

I pasted Tom's post in its entirety. I lost his bold type in the paste. Ol' BC himself has commented over and again on how those in the science community who support this lunacy are government employed or on government grants. Nearly all objective scientists have disputed the whole arguement as they study it independently.

Does this mean that those see the farce for what it is don't want a cleaner planet? Of course not. That would be just as silly as those who wish to cripple the United States economy and further punish the poor with this "cap and trade" garbage. Some of the environmental mess is man made and nobody can dispute it. Some carbon dioxide is man made (especially when we breathe). Its impact has been totally misrepresented by some in an effort to increase the size and scope of government. Some actually believe it, I'm sure. But, the House bought into it by a very slim majority. Ol' BC is surprised that the margin was that slim. Maybe we really do have hope in the Senate. Maybe, but don't hold your breath. Thuggery could be coming to the U.S.

Just a thought.

I've been arguing against man-made global warming for years (two or three, anyway) and those arguing against me are mainly name-callers and incompetent arguers who seem to want to shift the discussion to pollution or something else.

It ain't happenin' and those still arguing for global warming are mostly government types looking for more budget money or researchers looking for bigger research grants.

You can't get a government research grant if your results aren't what the bureaucrats want.
