Posted on 10/18/2013 1:00:53 PM PDT by Berlin_Freeper
The Los Angeles Times is giving the cold shoulder to global warming skeptics.
Paul Thornton, editor of the papers letters section, recently wrote a letter of his own, stating flatly that he won't publish some letters from those skeptical of mans role in our planets warming climate. In Thorntons eyes, those people are often wrong -- and he doesnt print obviously wrong statements.

I been giving LA Liars cold shoulder for years
They can’t handle the truth!!
At least they aren’t trying to conceal their leftist bias.
The Slimes have no integrity at all. None.
I’m still waiting for the answer to this question.
Why Is the L.A. Times Burying the Obama/Khalidi Tape?
They’ve been printing “obviously wrong statements” for years. It’s all they do.
Anthropomorphic global warming is a religious belief of the secular left. All dissent is heretical.
I wonder if they know the very scientist who promoted global warming in the first place now admit it was in error?
Hilarious!!! This is a guy who shouts aloud in defense of the 1st amendment claiming it is critical to enable “the people” to readily get BOTH sides of any discussion.
He doesn’t mention the tiny, tiny, print that, “displays ONLY the side that I agree with.”
He also spends a good deal of time lamenting the fact that his “newspaper” is bleeding readers.
Sam Zell owns the LA Times ?
“he doesnt print obviously wrong statements.”
Damn, no more quotes from President Hussein then.
“Free Speech” — to the left — has always meant shouting down opposing viewpoints.
I’d rather consult a cosmetologist on the subject ascertaining that I’d get a more valid opinion.
Sounds like he is ill...truthaphobic.
How long before they stop accepting letters from 2A supporters who are “violence skeptics”?
It is like living in an Orwell novel.
Great publicity for those champions of a free press. Let them die by their own hand.
In Thorntons eyes, those people are often wrong — and he doesnt print obviously wrong statements.
Since when has the IPCC been right?
You know that free speech is on its last legs
Raising the debt ceiling is just “paying our bills” after all.
Yep, we are living in an Orwell or Ayn Rand novel
Too bad the LA Times will miss the most important news story of the 21st century:
In VA the Dems are running an AD which states the republican does not believe in global warming.
That in itself shows how stupid the left have become.
Hey Paul, you can stop publishing some letters but you CAN’T stop the solar cycles.
“ This manmade climate change debacle is now fully exposed as a hoax. The latest climate report just released on September 27, 2013, from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN-IPCC), is titled The Physical Science, Summary for Policymakers. I and others have thoroughly condemned it. I had previously described this type of unreliable if not untrustworthy, science in my own climate science book, Cold Sun. Over the past six and a half years, in many interviews and speaking engagements, I have called this manmade climate science of the UN-IPCC, and similar efforts by the Obama administration, the greatest international scientific fraud in history. -John Casey
...Obama issues an Executive Order to the Sun...
....to increase it's magnetic field....
and make a good crop of sunspots before elections in 2016....
(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades.
The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.
Good luck surviving with no electricity and GE modified seeds.

Banning letters to newspapers...that’s what the U.S.A. has become.
They lost the argument.
Now like a kid that got struck out, they want to take their ball and go home.
“Global Warming” is not now or ever has been about “Global Warming”. It is about control. Look how much our life has changed since environmentalist gained power.
I truly believe that the left would be happy if we were living as they do in North Korea. 100% control 100% of the time.
No Dissent! Sounds more and more like a totalitarian society.
The rising tide of truth about climate is scaring the eco-nuts.
This move follows closely on “Popular Science” shutting down comments on its on-line articles — largely for the same reason. Trend?
dissent is no longer tolerated
Isn’t skepticism supposed to be part of the job of a scientist, or is that just too old-fashioned?
Paul Thornton is your typical liberal mouse, head planted firmly up his rear end.
The light of truth makes cockroaches like Thornton scatter to their holes.
I wonder what happen to rumor sale of LA Liars to Koch Brothers
I hear something then that is
I think maybe LA Liars might be too much in debt that even Koch Brothers don’t want take that chance
dissent is no longer tolerated = opposing views are gaining traction
I read the la crimes a few days a week. Laying around the cafe where I eat breakfast.
Oftentimes the letters will run all liberal on a major topic.
I think they went 2 months without mentioning benghazi
The typically open mind of the leftist.
Desperation is harder to conceal than leftists think.
