Marquette Warrior: More Global Warming Fascism

More Global Warming Fascism

We’ve already blogged about the increasingly hysterical tone of those who believe that global warming is the result of human activity, and their intolerance of alternative views.

There is still more evidence on this point. First, Al Gore attacks those who disagree with him.
MADRID , SPAIN (CNN) -- Former Vice President Al Gore said in an interview on Tuesday the Bush administration is now paying scientists to dispute global warming since the administration can no longer argue against it.

During an interview with CNN affiliate Cuatro in Madrid, Gore said, “they’ve lost the argument and they don’t want to stop dumping all this pollution into the Earth’s atmosphere. The only thing they have left is cash and now they’re offering cash for so-called skeptics who will try to confuse people about what the science really say. But it’s unethical because now the time has come when we have to act.”

Gore was the Democratic nominee against Bush in the 2004 presidential election. His film, An Inconvenient Truth, is up for the best documentary Oscar.
But global warming skeptics are not only being derided, they are being fired from their positions.
In the face of evidence agreed upon by hundreds of climate scientists, George Taylor holds firm. He does not believe human activities are the main cause of global climate change.

Taylor also holds a unique title: State Climatologist.

Hundreds of scientists last Friday issued the strongest warning yet on global warming saying humans are “very likely” the cause.

“Most of the climate changes we have seen up until now have been a result of natural variations,” Taylor asserts.

His opinions conflict not only with many other scientists, but with the state of Oregon’s policies.
In other words, scientists whose views conflict with the government’s policies need to be shut up and silenced.

Politics determines science.

Note that Taylor would not lose his job as a professor. Only the title State Climatologist.

But people trying to make rational policy -- rather than wage a moralistic crusade -- want to hear competing opinions, and welcome challenges to the conventional wisdom.
