Vile or not, they were killed for what they wrote and published and drew as cartoons. So the French public, Europe, and the Western world went on a giant collective rant of words and symbolic gestures Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Campaign to Criminalize Climate Change Dissent

 A group of scientists are petitioning Barack Obama to criminalize climate change dissent by prosecuting the dissenters under RICO law.
