Ahhhhh, the sound of those open minded liberals squawking once again: (h/t Newsbusters)
David Suzuki has called for political leaders to be thrown in jail for ignoring the science behind climate change.
At a Montreal conference last Thursday, the prominent scientist, broadcaster and Order of Canada recipient exhorted a packed house of 600 to hold politicians legally accountable for what he called an intergenerational crime. Though a spokesman said yesterday the call for imprisonment was not meant to be taken literally, Dr. Suzuki reportedly made similar remarks in an address at the University of Toronto last month.
Toward the end of his speech, Dr. Suzuki said that “we can no longer tolerate what’s going on in Ottawa and Edmonton” and then encouraged attendees to hold politicians to a greater green standard.
“What I would challenge you to do is to put a lot of effort into trying to see whether there’s a legal way of throwing our so-called leaders into jail because what they’re doing is a criminal act,” said Dr. Suzuki, a former board member of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.
“It’s an intergenerational crime in the face of all the knowledge and science from over 20 years.”
It’s a crime to question the bad science of man-made global warming now. Now you can understand why I call them environazi’s, because that is exactly where they are going with this. To throw someone in jail for pointing out that their science is just plain unproven is ludicrous. But to that leftist at least it all makes sense.
Maybe they will go after The Climate Skeptic for making this great 10 minute compilation of his longer 60 minute version about the science of global warming, and how unreliable it is:
Or maybe they will go after Penn & Teller for calling bullshit on the hysteria:
The fact is there is NO consensus on man-made global warming (check here for a list of 2660 Physicists, Geophysicists, Climatologists, Meteorologists, Oceanographers, and Evironmental Scientists who don’t believe the hype). The debate is NOT over, nor should it ever be. Which reminds me of a great quote from George Will recently:
“People only insist that a debate stop when they are afraid of what might be learned if it continues.”
And believe me, they are deathly afraid of losing that funding that keeps them in that lifestyle they so enjoy right now. These people are not about a cleaner planet, they are about a leftist urge to redistribute wealth in my opinion. Taxes on CO2 accomplishes this quite well. It will choke economic growth in the US while punishing the consumers.
“A climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources,”

“When the chips are down I think democracy is a less important goal than is the protection of the planet from the death of life, the end of life on it. [Carbon rationing] has got to be imposed on people whether they like it or not.”
