LA Times bans letters from climate skeptics
foxnews.com ^ | October 18, 2013 | FOX

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 paper’s letters section, recently wrote a letter of his own, stating flatly that he won't publish some letters from those skeptical of man’s role in our planet’s warming climate. In Thornton’s eyes, those people are often wrong -- and he doesn’t print obviously wrong statements.

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.

“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.

How long before they stop accepting letters from 2A supporters who are “violence skeptics”?

It is like living in an Orwell novel.

In Thornton’s eyes, those people are often wrong — and he doesn’t print obviously wrong statements.

Since when has the IPCC been right?

Yep, we are living in an Orwell or Ayn Rand novel

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

Welcome King Barack "Canute" Obama the Great.....

...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.

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.

This move follows closely on “Popular Science” shutting down comments on its on-line articles — largely for the same reason. Trend?

Isn’t skepticism supposed to be part of the job of a scientist, or is that just too old-fashioned?

LOL!
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 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
