British Lord: Uphold Free Speech or Resign

I like this guy

WASHINGTON, Dec. 17 /U.S. Newswire/ — Lord Monckton, Viscount of Brenchley, has sent an open letter to Senators Rockefeller (D- W.Va.) and Snowe (R-Maine) in response to their recent open letter telling the CEO of ExxonMobil to cease funding climate-skeptic scientists. ( http://ff.org/centers/csspp/pdf/20061212_monckton.pdf ).

Lord Monckton, former policy adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, writes: "You defy every tenet of democracy when you invite ExxonMobil to deny itself the right to provide information to 'senior elected and appointed government officials' who disagree with your opinion."

In what The Charleston (W.Va.) Daily Mail has called "an intemperate attempt to squelch debate with a hint of political consequences", Senators Rockefeller and Snowe released an open letter dated Oct. 30 to ExxonMobil CEO, Rex Tillerson, insisting he end Exxon's funding of a "climate change denial campaign." The Senators labeled scientists with whom they disagree as "deniers," a term usually directed at "Holocaust deniers." Some voices on the political left have called for the arrest and prosecution of skeptical scientists. The British Foreign Secretary has said skeptics should be treated like advocates of Islamic terror and must be denied access to the media.

He hit the nail on the head. Those that support global warming as caused by Man (GWACBM) do everything in their power to silence critics. Reputable scientists who have done studies, who have looked at the data, and found global warming is either not happening, or is barely caused by Mankind.

Concludes Lord Monckton, "I challenge you to withdraw or resign because your letter is the latest in what appears to be an internationally-coordinated series of maladroit and malevolent attempts to silence the voices of scientists and others who have sound grounds, rooted firmly in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, to question what you would have us believe is the unanimous agreement of scientists worldwide that global warming will lead to what you excitedly but unjustifiably call 'disastrous' and 'calamitous' consequences."

You really have to love the British way of laying the smack-down, eh?Cool

Let's face it: not all scientists agree with the GWACBM debate, and much of their data is suspect, since it relies on conjecture, hypothesis, feelings, and computer models. Those same computer models cannot even predict what the weather will be with 100% accuracy 10 days out. Heck, they cannot accurately predict where a hurricane is going. They cannot give more then 5-10 minutes warning for tornado touchdown, and they are not always correct on whether one touched down or not. How can they honestly tell us what the climate will be like 10, 50, 100 years from now?

Don't believe me? With all due respect to weather people, who have a tough job, check you local weather site, or the Weather Channel, for their long term forecast. See if it stays the same. Bet not.

    Didn’t some of NC’s own politicians talk about liberals trying to stifle debate on Global Warming? I think some conservatives such as Sen. Fred Smith mentioned it.

    I’m not surprised at Olympia Snow, a real RINO being involved. Rockefeller is a Nazi at heart, but Snow tries to portray herself as a moderate.

  2. The global warming as caused by man folks do not like to have their false feelings debated.

    And I don’t doubt they are already using their massive power of government to squelch the debate. This is likely only just a tiny bit that’s making it’s way into public.
