Global Warming Hysterics Love Freedom

Well, not really.

The Weather Channel’s most prominent climatologist is advocating that broadcast meteorologists be stripped of their scientific certification if they express skepticism about predictions of manmade catastrophic global warming. This latest call to silence skeptics follows a year (2006) in which skeptics were compared to "Holocaust Deniers" and Nuremberg-style war crimes trials were advocated by several climate alarmists.

The Weather Channel’s (TWC) Heidi Cullen, who hosts the weekly global warming program "The Climate Code," is advocating that the American Meteorological Society (AMS) revoke their "Seal of Approval" for any television weatherman who expresses skepticism that human activity is creating a climate catastrophe.

"If a meteorologist can't speak to the fundamental science of climate change, then maybe the AMS shouldn't give them a Seal of Approval. Clearly, the AMS doesn't agree that global warming can be blamed on cyclical weather patterns," Cullen wrote in her December 21 weblog on the Weather Channel Website. [Note: It is also worth taking a look at the comments section at the bottom of Cullen’s blog, very entertaining.] See: http://climate.weather.com/blog/9_11396.html This latest call to silence skeptics of manmade global warming has been the subject of discussion at the annual American Meteorological Society’s Annual conference in San Antonio Texas this week.

I thought that the Liberals loved Free Speech. A DUer says just that

BushOut06 Global Warming deniers are not only stupid, but they are dangerous

I'm glad that Heidi Cullen is calling for the decertification of Global Warming deniers. It's a nice start. I'd love to see these people stripped of any teaching positions as well. We can't allow these right-wingers to influence our young people. Denying global warming is not only ignorant, but it's also dangerous, putting our entire planet at risk. Think about it – if these skeptics had their way, we would do absolutely nothing to curtail global warming. Their actions would not only fail to address the problem, but they would exacerbate the situation, perhaps bringing about drastic climatic change even faster.

Sounds a bit like Facism to me. How about you?

    It sounds a LOT like fascism to me.

  2. Scrapiron says:

    Name a progressive liberal that doesn’t practice Fascism.

  3. Bigfoot says:

    Don’t you love how those lefties proclaim that “dissent is the highest form of patriotism” when they criticize Bush, but have no respect whatsoever for people who dissent against their views?

  4. Bigfoot says:

    The next anti-spam word is “dhimmi”. Couldn’t pass that one up 😉
    To the global warming fascists: I will not be your dhimmi!

  5. Ravenwolf says:

    Sounds more like frustration in that they have not been listened to till now

    Well I’m a liberal, and I do love free speech. In fact, I’d welcome someone putting forward a decent case against global warming (nobody has yet) on a little wiki I’m trying to start: http://www.wikimocracy.com. Just for you I’ve made the question “Is global warming manmade?” the topic of the week. Can’t say freer than that 😉

  7. Well, Chucky, if you go back through my archives on “Environment,” you will find plenty of arguments, mostly having to do with global warming/climate change not being Mankind’s fault, for the most part.

  8. Ravenwolf says:

    William Teach I find its going to be majority mans fault…Not from intent or malicious intent but from negligence and ignorance of effect.Yhis I see as being a new science (not new concept) and the actions of man on the Earth pumping and billowing into the atmosphere is a great contribitor

  9. Sorry, have to disagree with you. While Man certainly has an influence on the Earth’s climate, what with the billions of humans, clear cutting, pollution, we were actually coming out of the Little Ice Age around 1850, so of course the temps would go up. Ad in natural processes like higher output from the Sun and the Earth doing its thing, such as more underwater volcano’s in the Mid Atlantic ridge, and you find that it is mostly natural.

    Did you know that Antarctica is actually getting colder, and the ice sheets are getting bigger? What has been happening in the Northern Hemisphere lately can be chalked up to weather effects, not climate.

  10. Ravenwolf says:

    I did not know it was getting colder(this is new info)-I still belive it stems from our assistance to an extent..But if the artic is getting older,was’nt that the biggest concern?(increase ocean volume?)Still hard to say its not with more and more every year changing side of the fence?

  11. What you have is changes to micro-climates. Many of the studies show that areas in the northern hemisphere are warmer, but, is it caused by man, and the main culprit, auto’s (funny how planes are always left out), or nature? Is it actual global warming, or issues such as warmer temp readings caused by the “urban jungle effect (steel and glass buildings, tons of pavement, and clearcutting)?”

    The thing is, no one really knows. Too many studies are done by computer model, not actual research and observation. Cumputer models cannot tell us where a hurricane is going 24 hours out 100%. While that is weather, not climate, the models are almost the same. And there are contradictory releases of these studies by global warming adherents.

    So, what is real? What is the actual global climate doing?
