Climate change treason? Wow. This is becoming one of the most egregious cases in history of doubling-down when the evidence for your arguments is weak, or non-existent. Here is Robert F. Kennedy, Jr:
From CNS News:
Kennedy made the remarks in an interview with Climate Depot at a climate march in New York on Sunday:
Kennedy Jr. accused skeptical politicians of “selling out the public trust.” “Those guys are doing the Koch Brothers bidding and are against all the evidence of the rational mind, saying global warming does not exit. They are contemptible human beings. I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under.”
Kennedy also said he thinks the successful pro-energy Koch brothers should be “in jail…with all the other war criminals”:
“I think it’s treason. Do I think the Koch Brothers are treasonous, yes I do,” Kennedy explained.
“They are enjoying making themselves billionaires by impoverishing the rest of us [*] Do I think they should be in jail, I think they should be enjoying three hots and a cot at the Hague with all the other war criminals,” Kennedy declared.
And, Kennedy’s not the only climate activist who would like to see dissenters jailed.
As the Media Research Center’s Business and Media Institute (BMI) chronicled in a May 2014 analysis, pro-climate change theory media and scientists have long promoted the idea of throwing anyone who disagrees with them in jail – even to the point of calling for “climate Nuremberg” trials.
[* Note that Robert F. Kennedy’s net worth is reportedly a mere (!) fifty million dollars, so he is one of us… or so he seems to expect us to believe.]
So, I belong in jail because I believe the scientific case for man-made global warming remains unproved, and with too many unanswered questions to begin harming people and economies based on half-baked policies (the only confirmed warming is in these people’s brains).
I suppose the writers and editors of the L.A. Times will also be on trial for this story: “West Coast warming linked to naturally occurring changes.”
Naturally occurring changes in winds, not human-caused climate change, are responsible for most of the warming on land and in the sea along the West Coast of North America over the last century, a study has found.
The analysis challenges assumptions that the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has been a significant driver of the increase in temperatures observed over many decades in the ocean and along the coastline from Alaska to California.
This is clearly a modern Inquisition, where a set of government-funded priests in white coats is screaming heresy at those who fail to get in line.
RFK Jr. has no clue as to the real scientific evidence, but he’s saying those opposed to him should be in jail. Perhaps it won’t be long before the Department of Homeland Security is called into action to give him his wish.
Sorry, my conscience doesn’t bend for intimidation. Show me untainted, verified evidence and I’ll listen. So far, I’m sincerely not seeing it.
What I see are Leftists employing their time-tested parasitic tools to plunder the productive and support their failed ideology. No society based on their principles has ever brought human prosperity, and virtually all of them have produced widespread poverty and death. But… hey… let’s try it again. We know elites like RFK Jr. will benefit. The Marxists at the top always do.
