Soon they’ll be excommunicating scientists from academia, and putting them on the rack until they confess their transgressions.

“he’s having too much fun with global warming and getting honors like the Nobel Peace Prize.”

Ah yes, and I’m still trying to figure out what GW has to do with “peace”.

If anything, it sure has provoked the opposite of it.

Literally or not, it’s a good idea, and then jail all the scientists who don’t believe in globalist whoring. Jail me because I’m never going to cooperate with all this world socialism. I just bought a big diesel pickup. I’m running an electric heater because my air fowling, wood burning stove hasn’t heated the entire house yet, and I think globalist warmers and the politicians who follow them are brainwashed, satanic idiots. And having us all in jail, feed us. McCain is big into the globalist warming scheme. Maybe a crackpot like him would put a little gestapo behind the cause. Start the Globalistland Security Force or something, and come after all us conservatives who don’t eat the the greenie garbage. Better yet, take this little jerk, fascist scientist, and water board him with tiny ice cubes until he admits he really did mean it literally.

I love the concept “ intergenerational crime” - This lets you persecute someone for anything done by other people before them.... What a power mad degenerate... Of course he said this in Canada, where power mad degenerates foist there view of totalitarianism on the few working people who still generate new wealth for society

"What I would challenge you to do is to put a lot of effort into trying to see whether there's a legal way of throwing our so-called leaders into jail because what they're doing is a criminal act," said Dr. Suzuki

After flak, says he didn't mean it literally?

Sounds pretty literal to me =

Sounds to me he just let the cat out of the bag early, forgetting he was talking 'out loud' -

This is the kind of thinking that leads to political prisoners - it has happened in our lifetimes in other countries - it can happen here.

We damn well better wake up

Where do you think it comes from?

I can hear gorebore in the background.

This guy is only spouting the plans already drawn up by these very dangerous people - who do not believe in their own GW rhetoric. It's all one giant ponzi scheme to install Universal Socialism - drawing off the wealth of the world, with them on the top of the heap, the rest of us trying to survive at the bottom.

David Suzuki has called for political leaders to be thrown in jail for ignoring the science behind climate change

I'm good with jailing Al Gore, Obama, HRC, Schwartzenegger, and McCain for ignoring the science behind global warming.

Also they consistently try to conflate those who believe that the climate is trending towards warming with those who claim to KNOW that it is caused by humans rather than natural variation.

Few Scientists deny that the trend is towards a warmer earth, but there is very little data to suggest that it is beyond the bounds of normal variation and that the problem is exacerbated by human activity.

and his Ph.D in zoology

Yeah, that makes him qualified to spout off about the science of climatology...

and these same people want to prohibit - and now jail - the actual climatologists who refute their GW hoax

The sheeple better wake up soon

Yet more evidence of the lack of tolerance of the envirowhackos and why their so-called “facts and evidence” should be taken with a very large grain of salt.

And they wonder why people don’t want to believe them or support their alleged “solutions” to global warming.

Interesting piece, liked this part;

“He has stopped vacationing overseas and taken to “clustering” his speaking engagements together to reduce his carbon footprint. He would prefer, he says, to appear solely by video conference.

In 2007, Suzuki made a cross-country tour in a diesel bus, speaking to Canadians about climate change and urging compliance with the Kyoto Accord. Gold Standard carbon offsets were purchased by the David Suzuki Foundation for all bus travel and tour activities. The Foundation’s “David Suzuki’s Nature Challenge” and “David Suzuki’s Nature Challenge for Kids” suggest simple steps people can take to protect nature and improve their quality of life. Suzuki’s spokesman said he used the diesel bus because using biodiesel would have voided the bus’ warranty.

Usually, when a person ignores a physical law, he does not have to be reminded by temporal authorities. However, without debate, science becomes Lysenkoism.

Somewhere I read that the little nutball has 5 or 6 kids. If he was so worried about sustainability and his carbon footprint why didn't he get himself neutered?

If there was actually any real science behing global warming, we would be taking action like this:


Qattara Depression

If Greenland melted down completely, 88% of the excess water produced could be contained by flooding the uninhabited Qatarra Depression in northwest Egypt, producing thousands of miles of valuable lakefront property, generating electrical power as water flowed from the Medditerranean to the depression and potentially turning much of the surrounding Sahara Desert into arable land.

It took Greenland 18,000 years to accumulate as much ice as it has now. How long do you think it will take it to melt?

His views are sincere and the public espousal of them will spread until there are real attempts to do it, first in Canada where they will succeed the next time the Liberals take over, which probably won’t be long. Conservatives up there tend to be politically clumsy and Liberals are corrupt enough to buy a lot of votes and time.

Most of the left already believes he has the right idea. He opened the subject and I bet we hear it more and more from our own left. It will eventually result in huge lawsuits against scientists who don’t tow the line and will result in scientists falling into that line to avoid the expenses of the lawsuits that they have to pay even if they win. An awful lot of the effective censorship in this country could be shut down just by going nationally to a loser-pays-court-costs system for lawsuits.
