Skip to comments.Scientist On PBS: Lock Up Politicians Who Question Climate Change [VIDEO]
Posted on 05/21/2014 7:08:32 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Canadian geneticist David Suzuki urged Western governments to lock up politicians who question man-made climate change, telling PBS Bill Moyers our politicians should be thrown in the slammer for willful blindness!
Suzuki appeared on Moyers and Company earlier this month to express his abject frustration over politicians, in both Canada and the United States, who refuse to accept the settled science on man-made global warming.
Our politicians should be thrown in the slammer for willful blindness! he asserted. If we are in a position of being able to act, and we see something going on and we refuse to acknowledge the threat or act on it, we can be taken to court for willful blindness.
I think that we are being willfully blind to the consequences to our children and grandchildren, Suzuki continued. Its an intergenerational crime.
Moyers, a well-known climate alarmist, didnt push back a bit instead gently tabling the idea as impractical.
The problem is, if that should happen if politicians were to be convicted to willful blindness to the fate of the Earth and future generations there would have to be mass arrests, and lots more funding for new prisons, he noted. Were not talking about a mere handful of culprits. Its hard to know where to start.
Willful blindness is a legitimate legal reference in the United States (and, presumably, Canada) used to describe the intentional failure of an individual to become aware of facts pointing to criminal liability.
But arresting politicians for being willfully blind to facts on climate change would mean criminalizing not only those industries and individuals that emit carbon, but also anyone who dares take an opinion contrary to the settled science".
Perhaps that would fly in Suzukis home country, which prosecuted conservative writer Mark Steyn a few years ago for his views on Islam. But the good scientist may want to brush up on the U.S. Constitution before making such claims south of the border.
In April, Rochester Institute of Technology professor Lawrence Torcello argued that those who deny global warming are criminally negligent and that the funding of climate denial should be an imprisonable offense.

But you better not DARE call him a fascist!
Is he related to Joe Suzuki?
The opposite is what everyone should be talking about. I know I try to post on every thread involving the hoax, that we should be pushing for legal punishment of the scammers. Instead, they get the headlines threatening us with being locked up.
Logically then, he should be thrown into jail for imitating a real scientist.
Follow the money.
Another word for Authoritarian.
Lenin had the same dream
A recent photo from the Hubble telescope shows that the 'Red Eye' on Jupiter is shrinking. This is climate change.
There is nothing we can do to warm the planet. We can cool the planet by setting off multiple nuclear devices and send dust clouds into the atmosphere.
Man can not warm the planet. Energy comes from the sun.
And we’re actually letting people with this mindset determine our future. 4 billion years of climate change and we are living on this Earth because of it.
Better idea...send the warmers to one of the poles...according to them it will be warm enough there soon...if not...well, no loss to the rest of us...
why is a geneticist being asked anything about globull warming?
I hate to point it out to this guy, but politicians are in charge of passing criminal laws and saying who should be locked up. Will they send themselves to jail? Many people believe they should, but don’t hold your breath....
Suzuki gets crazier as he gets older
Better to lock up the ignorant, stupid and corrupt scientists.
Wow, a Japanese guy suggesting there be Internment Camps.
That was so 70 Years ago, Dude...
Can he get me a sweet deal on a Hayabusa?
this person is a hack that attempted to duplicate the popularization of science of the original cosmos tv series. Directors wheel him out when they need a “scientist says...” something.
He is no better than the history channel alien expert.
Do you want to hear the most ironic part? Suzuki actually spent time in an internment camp, in Canada, during the war.
Lock up everyone who has made money on this scam.Al Gore would be the first to go.
Lock up people who deny that the climate has been changing for the past billion years or so, and that the forces responsible for those changes are no longer active.
First, how are we in a position to act? What would these scientist have us do? Is this going to be be a "pass it to find out what's in it" situation?
Second, what do we see going on? Zero warming for the last 17 years, and tiny temperature rises projected over hundreds of years that may not be all bad for the planet overall. Will Canada lament a 2 degree C rise? What about the vast lands of Siberia?
Suppose we acknowledged the "threat" and acted on it. What if this causes global cooling, which would be far more dangerous than global warming?
“Settled science”... If it’s settled then where is the proof? Show me the proof that man can create enough CO2 to change the composition of 5 quadrillion metric tons of gas and water vapor to the point where the temperature increases, show me the proof biotch.
This just illustrates why the Second Amendment is so important in America.
Taking a page from Islam , you’re with us or you’re dead
Actually what is blind is ignoring science that comes to a different conclusion then that which you believe. We have seen plenty of science from thousands of scientists now that demonstrate the original AGW human caused global warming theory is simply not true. And we have 16 years now of observable temperature data that says it is not even happening right now. So I guess the leftists sociopaths got one thing right, we realist are blind to seeing things that do not exist.
You can call him Ray, or you can call him Jay, or you can call him Rayjay .... but you CANTS call him “FASCIST!!!”
Part of me thinks they know they are beaten when they spew nonsense like this. The few libs I know on FB are getting *really* nutsy with their posts these days. While I hold little hope things will change after the probable R-takeover this fall, I look forward to these small minded heads exploding after the returns are in.
Okay how about Climate Nazi? Brown Shirt Weather Bitch? Globull Warming Bulshitter?
The Sun’s variation in watts per meter is about 13 times that of the trapping effect of ‘greenhouse gases’. They’ve grabbed onto extraneous scientific information in order to further a political agenda.
Note that David Suzuki is a geneticist, not a climatologist. He doesn’t know how to evaluate the research and the climate models. He’s just taking someone’s word for it.
He's a charlatan.
Shouldn't this loud mouthed buffoon be out making cars or something useful?
I say we throw him onto an ice floe and let the polar bears have a snack.

Did you see this? O’Keefe bagged Ed Bagley....
Undercover journalist James OKeefe released his latest video featuring a sting operation to expose Hollywood environmentalists.
The video features an undercover journalist from Project Veritas posing as “Muhammad, a member of a Middle Eastern oil family, offering $9 million in funding to American filmmakers to fund an anti-fracking movie. He was joined by a second undercover activist posing as an ad executive.
OKeefe entraps actor Ed Begley Jr., actress Mariel Hemingway, and director Josh Tickell, who agree to the film while promising to hide the source of the funds.
This one’s amazing:

ERLICH BLEW IT...DECADES AGO...and now he’s back with DOOMSDAYII
Maybe he figures that enough generations have passed ...that the up and coming “voter” type will not have heard about his reputation and thus be prime to buy this current Batch of Stupid ..hook line and sinker.
Well they already have a name for the product, Soylent Green!
LOL - "Batch of Stupid" - that's perfect Mikey. Describes this Ehrlich loony toon idea to a "T"... I'm still waiting for the population bomb that will have us all starving to death by ... what was it? 2000?
Go to Herr, Suzuki
I just heard someone explain one difference between conservatives and liberals is that conservatives debate while liberals lecture. The three things that liberals hate most are FoxNews, the Blog-o-sphere (e.g. FreeRepublic), and talk radio. On each of those, debate is freely exercised. And that’s why liberals hate them.
The Bomb was Erlich..Duds both of em.
SIlent Spring...and yet the Birds are still singing.
The human race outlasted Rachel Carson and we will likely outlast Ehrlich...and if we done it wont be for any of the reasons he “thought” we’d meet our DOOM.
These people are such duds!
