The Climate Change Inquisition: Calls to Imprison “Climate Change Deniers” on the Rise by Leftist Cranks

Global warming alarmist are no so desperate to spread their religion now, they are calling for imprisonment of people who don’t worship at the alter of Al Gore.

Leftists want their own Global Warming Inquisition to punish heretics who dare question Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Now that the have the Pope declaring that Harvey and Irma are directly caused by global warming, because we can “see it with our own eyes,” who would dare question this as being other than fact?

The Washington Times reports:

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.

Brad Johnson, executive director of Climate Hawks Vote, posted last week on Twitter a set of “climate disaster response rules,” the third of which was to “put officials who reject science in jail.”

ZeroHedge looked at the frequency of U.S. hurricane strikes and global tropical storms and found that there is no correlation between global warming and hurricane/tropical storm frequencies over time.

Why were U.S. hurricane strikes above average for almost every decade between 1870 and 1950 before declining in the 1950s through 2000?  If hurricane frequency can suddenly be linked directly to climate change in 2017, shouldn’t it have produced similarly alarming hurricanes in the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s?  If we’re not mistaken, CO2 output has pretty much consistently risen since man first started building fires…

Of course, maybe the extreme weather events have simply shifted away from the U.S. and global hurricane strikes are the more relevant metric…except not…

Oh well, we probably just don’t understand the math…
