...and on the not so good: ARREST climate change deniers?

Apparently ClimateGate from a couple of years back, and a lot of recent, objective evidence is making even some former believers questions AGW.

So apparently here's the solution from the State Institute of Science..."put 'em in jail"...

BTW, the link is totally against this idea, and a great source of debunking the climate change myth, so have a look at it...

PS: I almost posted this under Science...but I think I made the right choice in the end...

    You posted to the correct topic. Hey, kinda makes me feel like Galileo! These AGW believers are as unreasonable and harsh as the Catholic Church was.

    It sounds like Mr. Torcello is using the L'Aquila as a model of how would we *should* treat scientists and people who make scientific claims. Then he says he doesn't think they should have been prosecuted. So why bring it up?

    It's very bad to prosecute people for being wrong. The whole enterprise of science is based on being open to new evidence and sifting and winnowing to find the truth.

    Torcello goes on to say "my argument probably raises an understandable, if misguided, concern regarding free speech." It's not misguided. He talks about all the funding that goes into misinformation. But information is almost free today. Scientists need to put the truth out there, not try to stifle these interest groups with criminal sanctions.

      So you agree, AGW has been scientifically shown to be incorrect, and its sycophants shown to be be "true believers" in junk science?

        no he does not agree, and you're lucky he hasn't called you a denier yet, cuz he likes that phrase. but he doesn't want to see you persecuted for "being wrong."

        Not at all. The scientific evidence is that it's a huge problem. I'm saying we should respond to well-funded misinformation campaigns by simply stating the truth, not by trying to silence them.

        I find it odd the author invokes the infamous case of scientists convicted of manslaughter for failing to predict an earthquake.

          No...

          The manipulated data shows it as a problem.

          In the 70s it was the incipient ice age, that dog didn't hunt so they changed to global warming. Which is also BS

          Like the causes of the Ozone hole and the junk science they used to ban DDT
