Scientists Ask Obama To Prosecute Global Warming Skeptics

There are 35 comments on the The Daily Caller story from Sep 17, 2015, titled Scientists Ask Obama To Prosecute Global Warming Skeptics. In it, The Daily Caller reports that:

The science on global warming is settled, so settled that 20 climate scientists are asking President Barack Obama to prosecute people who disagree with them on the science behind man-made global warming. Scientists from several universities and research centers even asked Obama to use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act to prosecute groups that "have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, as a means to forestall America's response to climate change."

...I am pleased that some colleagues with whom I have had professional disagreements with in the past have condemned the investigation via Twitter, among them Eric Steig (of Real Climate), Bob Ward (LSE) and Simon Donner (UBC). This shows some real class. In contrast, Michael E. Mann, who I defended when a Virginia politician came after him, used the “investigation” as a chance to lob childish insults my way via Twitter. Some things you can always count on in the climate arena!....

The poll says it all:

Is Global Warming Real And Man-Made?
Yes - 2%
No it's not man-made but it's real - 23%
No it's neither real nor man-made - 72%
Not sure - 2%
----------
It may take a while, but when the truth comes out, it will be the climate catastrophist crusaders who'll be worrying about prosecution.

We should prosecute any university, under RICO statutes, that makes claims based on "climate" science.

How about they round up Algore and his whacko scientists, bundle them up and ship them to the arctic ?

Only during winter, I'm bored by demagogues visiting in summer. If you believe global warming is most extreme at the poles, go there and prove it.

They will never go to court with deniers, because they know they would lose, and this is their next cash cow, after we get tired of feeding the losers from around the world.

Less than 3 days after Climate Gate, the America-hating liberal climatologists were out selling their lies about global warming. We all remember the thousands of emails between them directing each other to fudge their numbers to make it look like there's a problem.

The fox was just caught with a chicken in it's mouth, and the very next day the same fox was telling us it should be in charge of guarding the hen house.

Tyranny is always the first impulse of the liberal. This article is just more proof that the leftists are trying to destroy America and our system of government in favor of leftwing tyranny. The kind of tyranny where freedom of speech is forbidden. Now these America-hating Bolsheviks want to imprison people for not only free speech, but for denying their lies about Global Warming.

How's that hope and change working out for ya?

At a UN Conference on Climate Change, Al Gore predicted that, global warming having reached such an unbridled pitch, the North Pole would be completely ice-free during the summer of 2014. This climate change crusader had made the same claim when he accepted the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.

you seem to have trouble with quotes or math ( or both). I believe you are referring to this quote here:

Last September 21 (2007), as the Northern Hemisphere tilted away from the sun, scientists reported with unprecedented distress that the North Polar ice cap is "falling off a cliff." One study estimated that it could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years. Another new study, to be presented by U.S. Navy researchers later this week, warns it could happen in as little as 7 years

Scientific study done by Coke has found there is no link between sugary soft drinks and weight gain
:) Any military study that does not see global warming as a threat will receive orders to the poles for further study !

Both polar ice caps are expanding and the multi-year ice has become more dense. Sea ice has expanded at both poles and was evident much farther south than for decades this last winter. All projections of the climatologists now openly admitting their ideas and assertions are political in nature have failed to be borne out with actual observed reality. Close now to 19 years of absolutely no global warming is established by satellite data.

The craziness of some scientists actually wanting prosecution for scientific skepticism of such abhorrently falsified claims is precisely the anti-intellectualism the Mao, the Soviets and others used to justify murdering many millions of people. This type of anti-intellectualism is much worse than any shown under any Socialist regime, including the National Socialists of Germany in WWII.

Al Gore will never appear with a real scientist giving the truth about his so called global warming :)

Remember last year when all those ice breakers were trapped in the Antarctic ice :) What a hoot!

I wouldn't be too sure of that. They packed the SCOTUS with incompetent leftwing radicals and managed to pass 2 unconstitutional rulings already. The latter one (changing the definition of marriage) was designed to condition the American people into accepting more unconstitutional rulings in the future - like for example, restrictions of free speech.

Kim Davis and a few others are the fly in their ointment. The conditioning of the American people is not going as smoothly as they had hoped. Hopefully it is about to get a whole lot "less smooth" for them.

The supreme court is in violation of the constitution. States set the standards for marriage. It is not an issue given to the Federal government. The purpose of the constitution is to limit Federal power!
