Skip to comments.Adam Weinstein: Arrest Climate Change Deniers
Posted on 04/02/2014 4:59:40 AM PDT by LeoMcNeil
The Earth hasnt warmed in 17 years. The Arctic ice cap havent melted by 2013 as Al Gore suggested in 2007. Instead like the Antarctic ice cap it has grown. Nearly every computer model created by global warming scientists has turned out to be a massive exaggeration if not outright false. Despite all of this the UN has doubled down on their extremist global warming/climate change theories. Meanwhile Adam Weinstein of Gawker wants to imprison climate change deniers. Rather than have a spirited scientific debate, Weinstein wants the matter declared settled science. As George Will mused several months back, when politicians declare science settled theyve lost. That ought to be extended to political operatives.

The flat earthers in the past imprisoned and even executed people who denied their settled science too!
what’s old is new again it seems.
And they call conservatives extremists!
Time to arrest those who want to arrest people who won’t believe climate agit-prop.
It’s settled science.
“And they call conservatives extremists!”
They have turned the language upside down just as Rand said they would. Repeat something your grandfather considered to be as obvious as saying the Sun rises in the East and you are an “extremist”, say something your grandfather considered to be insanity and you are a “progressive”. What it really amounts to is that they are saying that within my lifetime which began during WWII everything changed, what used to be false is true, what used to be true is false and the people who were considered crazy then were the only ones who had it right.
Like some European countries that outlaw denying that the Holocaust took place.
What seems to have caused you to excerpt your own blog?
burn the heretics
“Adam Weinstein of Gawker wants to imprison climate change deniers.”
OK Adam, how about showing up here with your arrest warrant. I personally guarantee you will not have to worry about being “air conditioned”.
I think he means the ATF SWAT team should do it.
Libs don't like to get their own hands dirty.
Actually, the scammers should be arrested.
Want to make one of their heads explode? Ask them some of these questions:
1. Given numerous periods in Earth’s history of significantly warmer and colder climates, why are the climate observations during minuscule time when mankind could measure accurately considered the “right” climate for all time?
1a. Similarly, given sea-life fossils uncovered miles upon miles inland across the globe, why are the current ocean levels and shorelines the “right” ones to maintain forever? And can we?
2. The scientific community’s “consensus” has generated models with dire predictions for warming, rising oceans, increases in the number and severity of hurricanes and tornadoes. 99.9% of these models failed to predict the what actually occurred: no statistically significant warming for 15+ years; reductions in the number and severity of hurricanes and tornadoes over this period; and restoration of ice-shelfs and glaciers through colder than normal winters in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Why should we believe their models now?
3. What is the cost - literally and figuratively - of remediation efforts to eliminate or reverse man-caused climate effects? What happens if, for example, Americans tax themselves heavily, while China (for example) continues unabated?
4. Could monies spent on climate-change research and remediation save more lives and improve human longevity if spent on things like cancer research, anti-terrorism efforts? How many have died because of limits on spending in these areas due to climate research spending?
5. If the globe warms, won’t deaths due to severe winter calamities be reduced? Fewer car-wrecks on iced-over highways; fewer people freezing in the homes when they can’t afford to heat them?
6. If the globe warms, won’t the global capacity for crops be enhanced, as more land will be suitable for farming? Won’t this help with efforts to combat starvation?
If could go on and on ...
Belief in global warming/climate change is a religious belief and as such has no place in government. Separation of church and state, don’t you know?
Your website, your article, your post. Yet you need to excerpt it ?
I think that's called "trolling for hits".
Just in case there was/is any doubt that these leftists are fascists, seeking to impose/mandate their religion on everyone else.
While I think he is a lunatic for suggesting that, I DO NOT think it would be unfair to suggest jail for ‘climate change’ HOAXERS.
We are spending $billions on claimed results from falsified data.
Is sensuouscurmudgeon a screed against religion?
> The Arctic ice cap havent melted by 2013 as Al Gore suggested in 2007.
Adam W is “of Gawker”, iow, he doesn’t hold a job. Thanks LeoMcNeil.
Oh, no need to arrest them.
Just have them come try to arrest us themselves.
That would “learn ‘em” real quicklike.
Why is that a problem and why does it concern YOU??
The U.S. government banned lightbulbs for the global warming hoax. and the news media hid it from the public. after the end of this year it will be very hard to find light bulbs to buy
global warming is a hoax to advance socialism
i can’t believe the US government has banned lightbulbs for a a hoax called global warming. it is so shocking this could happen in America a free country.And the media hid it from the public that the government banned lightbulbs. the media is the problem the enemy. i hate the government . they are pure evil . i hate democrats. instead of the news media showing what the government is doing (like banning lightbulbs and Obama’s IRS oppressing conservatives)they show us Trayvon martin, adam lanza, global warming hoax, olympics, sports, and a missing plane.
we no longer live in a free country . the democrats control the media and what everyone thinks and talks about
This guy I would say has more credibility than any of these idiots put together and he says its all nonsense:
“We’re talking of a few tenths of a degree change in temperature. None of it in the last eight years, by the way. And if we had warming, it should be accomplished by less storminess. But because the temperature itself is so unspectacular, we have developed all sorts of fear of prospect scenarios of flooding, of plague, of increased storminess when the physics says we should see less.
I think it’s mainly just like little kids locking themselves in dark closets to see how much they can scare each other and themselves.”
I didn’t think so (I did not read the whole thing). There actually was a debate about whether the craters we see were caused by rocks falling from the sky. Barringer Crater in Arizona was thought to be of volcanic origin because it was silly to think that a rock the size of a soccer field could fall from thin air.
There was a published paper in 1912 that repeated the settled science that meteorites were the result of lightning fusing atmospheric dust.
Another long-running debate was whether finding a large boulder perched on a hill was a proof of the biblical Flood or the result of a ludicrous new theory that sheets of ice a mile thick pushed the boulder there.
This is a mindset that Libs apply to any disent from their orthodoxy. If they had their way, anyone who disagreed with anything they did would end up in jail or a psych hospital. Just look at the history of liberal statist societies — Communist Russia, North Korea, etc. Its the natural impluse of a liberal to want to jail or eliminate anyone who disagrees with them, period.
I’ll second your comment!
Because it's blogpimping.
why does it concern YOU??
Because I noticed it.
Commons Sense: Arrest global warming and climate nutjobs for FRAUD!
This guy sounds like the church that said the sun goes round the earth and branded any who disagreed heretics.
“Thomas Jefferson and the Yankees
In the early 1800s news traveled relatively slowly. People did not get frustrated waiting 15 seconds for a page to load from 3,000 miles away. New information could take months or years to be collected, analyzed, published and distributed.
In the cold chill of a December morning in 1807, Judge Wheeler walked from his home in Weston, Connecticut, USA, and was surprised to see a ball of fire moving across the northern horizon. He watched as it passed to a point almost overhead where it flashed several times and disappeared.
A few moments later he heard a great noise. Thunderous and roaring, the noise grew to a frightening level. He then heard the whizzing sound of something falling. As the judge looked up, he observed a small stone strike a nearby building, bounce off, and roll onto the grass. The judge decided to contact nearby Yale University and ask that the event be investigated.
Two very skeptical professors came out to look into the matter, fully prepared to dispel the story of stones falling from the sky. The two professors conducted a lengthy investigation. They knew these stones were different from any they had ever seen and they witnessed local townspeople extracting them from holes in yards and nearby fields. Finally, the two wise professors from Yale concluded the stones must have fallen from the sky.
Eventually the story found its way to the White House in Washington, D.C. President Thomas Jefferson was a scientist as well as statesman. When he heard this peculiar story he declared it could not be true, but his advisors insisted that the stones were observed falling from the sky and that two Yale professors investigating the incident vouched for its truth.
Thomas Jefferson, President of the United states, responded with great skepticism: “Gentlemen, I would rather believe that two Yankee professors would lie than believe that stones fall from heaven.”
To Jefferson, it was Settled Science that stones could not fall from the sky.
What would happen if those he sought to confine, resisted arrest and sought to restrict Adam Weinstein?

The earth's sphericality has been well-known for 2500 years?
Ironic how these idiot Global Warmers are reliving the Salem Witch Trials and don’t even realize it.
Insane or evil. Take your pick.
"We're also the Weather Police, now come with us!"
We all know that blog pimping is caused by global warming.
The scientific method is a way to ask and answer scientific questions by making observations and doing experiments.
The steps of the scientific method are to:
If they aren't using the scientific method, it ain't science.
I was thinking of the inquisition and the belief that the sun rotated around the earth, which was the center of the universe. And how the church accused anyone such as Galileo of heresy if they taught otherwise.
That’s GrumbleBummer’s sum total of competence, wit, and contribution on FR. It’s his “thing”.
This guy goes on the short list.
Well.... I think Socialist Eco-Nazi’s should be assassinated before they attempt to stuff us “deniers” into boxcars.
There is a difference between having faith and having proof.
If globul warmimg arlarmist are so afraid, seems it would make them feel better to hear some hard evidence that global warming is simply a marketing campaign.
But no amount of evidence will change their minds. They will keep spending money on ‘green’ products and keep feeding those whose livelihood depends on keeping the myth alive.
If I thought wife was dying, and a Dr came to reassure me that she will be OK, I would be overjoyed.
Globul warming is a religion. Its beleivers have faith. If you tell a muslim that he will not see alah and 72 virgins if he bombs a bus, he will not believe you.
The rules for bloggers on FR are the same as the rules for everyone else. If you are a good conservative activist and are willing to work with US on OUR goals and causes and not against US, then youre welcome to post to FR. But unless we say otherwise your blog material should be posted to our bloggers forum and it would be best if you do not excerpt your own material and if you would actually join in on the discussion here on FR. Were not really that interested in driving OUR traffic to YOUR blog. But if our readers see that you post useful information then they might start reading your site and thats fine by me.

Got a better idea...why not just arrest Adam Weinstein & lock him up for inciting a possible riot?
Clearly Adam Weinstein is completely ignorant of the history of science. They locked up Galileo for denying what the 99% consensus of existing scientists had to say about the fundamental settled science of astronomy that the Sun rotated around the Earth, but the Earth continued to rotate around the sun anyway.
A few of the other scientists who correctly bucked the 99% consensus and thereby revolutionized their respective sciences were, Louis Pasteur, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, Alfred Wegener, Antoine Lavoisier, Robert T. Bakker, and Robin Warren and Barry J. Marshall. Fortunately for humanity, though, psychotic mass murders like Adam Weinstein weren’t put in charge of slaughtering scientific heretics during those times.
Adam Weinstein should try reading The Structure of Scientific Revolutions by Thomas Kuhn and he MIGHT realize that the history of science is nothing BUT the 99% consensus of WRONG scientists being overturned by the 1% minority with truth on their side.
