Scientists Receive Death Threats For Questioning Manís Role in Global Warming
NewsBusters.org ^ | Noel Sheppard

Think those advancing anthropogenic global warming theories are serious about their views? Well, an article from Sunday’s Telegraph should scare every person around the world about the zealotry and danger surrounding this issue (emphasis mine throughout):

Scientists who questioned mankind's impact on climate change have received death threats and claim to have been shunned by the scientific community.

They say the debate on global warming has been "hijacked" by a powerful alliance of politicians, scientists and environmentalists who have stifled all questioning about the true environmental impact of carbon dioxide emissions.

Shocked? Astounded? That’s only the beginning:

Timothy Ball, a former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg in Canada, has received five deaths threats by email since raising concerns about the degree to which man was affecting climate change.

One of the emails warned that, if he continued to speak out, he would not live to see further global warming.

Why is this happening in Ball’s view:

"Western governments have pumped billions of dollars into careers and institutes and they feel threatened," said the professor.

"I can tolerate being called a sceptic because all scientists should be sceptics, but then they started calling us deniers, with all the connotations of the Holocaust. That is an obscenity. It has got really nasty and personal."

Other well-known skeptics agreed with Ball:

Richard Lindzen, the professor of Atmospheric Science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology - who also appeared on the documentary - recently claimed: "Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves labelled as industry stooges."

"Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in the face of the science."

Dr Myles Allen, from Oxford University, agreed. He said: "The Green movement has hijacked the issue of climate change. It is ludicrous to suggest the only way to deal with the problem is to start micro managing everyone, which is what environmentalists seem to want to do."

Nigel Calder, a former editor of New Scientist, said: "Governments are trying to achieve unanimity by stifling any scientist who disagrees. Einstein could not have got funding under the present system."

It’s getting scary out there, folks.

You should have told them that, unlike their grandchildren, yours would be smart enough to start wading towards the new shoreline when the water reached their knees.

This is probably mainly true and only beginning. I was comparing the True Believers to the moslemist extremists a few days ago and it was disquieting for sure.

"This guy hates"

Thats it in a nutshell.

I have observed many liberals, leftists and commies and
they all one thing in common:
anger.

There all shaking their fist at God.

They all think they have been cheated out of their greatness,
money, power, and control over others.

There is big $$$ to be made in carbon indulgences and reducing the carbon footprints of the rich. I wonder where the Mafia stands on this issue.

The Mafia, if there is such a thing, has a superior moral basis than do these scammers.

For "global warming", this has been an ongoing problem for almost two decades...

"We have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we may have. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest."
Stephen Schneider (leading advocate of the global warming theory)
(in interview for Discover magazine, Oct 1989)

All this is part of the guerrilla warfare that is going on between proponents and skeptics of global warming. Dennis Deming, a climate scientist at the University of Oklahoma, recently told the Senate about his experience in the field:

“In 1995, I published a short paper in the academic journal Science. In that study, I reviewed how borehole temperature data recorded a warming of about one degree Celsius in North America over the last 100 to 150 years. The week the article appeared, I was contacted by a reporter for National Public Radio. He offered to interview me, but only if I would state that the warming was due to human activity. When I refused to do so, he hung up on me.”

With the publication of the article in Science, I gained significant credibility in the community of scientists working on climate change. They thought I was one of them.... One of them let his guard down. A major person working in the area of climate change and global warming sent me an astonishing email that said: "We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period.">-- Nir J Shaviv

The folks who believe in global warming are scaring people into believing their pseudo-science.
One good scare can be matched by another good scare.
We should ask, "What if Gore's friends cool the Earth too much?"

Well, the salient point is that the poles have not been free of ice sheets (over land) for hundreds of millions of years...

...and should it happen again soon, there will be a lot more than CO2 to worry about...

Socialists push an agenda. They kill or threaten to kill anyone who doesn't agree with them. It has nothing to do with science. It has everything to do with totalitarian socialism.

It is scary out there....the liberals/enviro-wackos are threatened and will stop at nothing to forward their agenda of control and micro-management of society.

I'm gonna look up these scientists email addresses and send them a message that is supportive.

"Yes, anger at -----THE MAN!!"

I have one question.
If they all hate authority so much why do they all seem to
love murderous authoritarian dictators?

Must be their Schizophrenia.

Hope you got my ping to The Great Global Warming Swindle and hope you watched the whole thing.

There's big money being made and big reputations to protect in this scam. Of course the filthy lucre is up front and spendable, while the proof is in the future beyond the lifetimes of the grifters......sorta like Social Security.
