Environmental Magazine Wants Nuremburg Trials for Global Warming Deniers

, , , ,

The US Senate Committtee on Environment and Public Works released the following yesterday:

A U.S. based environmental magazine that both former Vice President Al Gore and PBS newsman Bill Moyers (for his October 11th global warming edition of “Moyers on America” titled “Is God Green?”) have deemed respectable enough to grant one-on-one interviews to promote their projects, is now advocating Nuremberg-style war crimes trials for skeptics of human caused catastrophic global warming.

Grist Magazine’s staff writer David Roberts called for the Nuremberg-style trials for the “bastards” who were members of what he termed the global warming “denial industry.”

Roberts wrote in the online publication on September 19, 2006, “When we’ve finally gotten serious about global warming, when the impacts are really hitting us and we’re in a full worldwide scramble to minimize the damage, we should have war crimes trials for these bastards — some sort of climate Nuremberg.

UPDATE

And over on the Huffington Post, the same David Roberts bleats that he is being attacked! Though he is willing to admit to “rhetorical excess,” Roberts is not really taking back what he said about crimes and trials. All we Global Warming skeptics are just a bunch of hired mercenary corporate flacks, who know perfectly well that Roberts and the other goofball, tree-hugging, Luddite moonbats are correct about the science, we’re just lying. Oh, sure. Pretty to think so, if you’re a moonbat.

Well, if they are ever going to be putting people on trial for lying about Global Warming, my next posting makes it pretty clear just who it is that will be standing in the dock.

The endless calls for “civility” among the nation’s political and media elite have become so numbing that it’s difficult to get out from under the haze and speak simply about this. But it needs to be said: These people are, morally if not legally, criminals.

global warming “denial industry.”
why put it in quotes it exists. paid for by exxon-mobil. they used to work for rjreynolds. but hey smoking isnt bad for you is it?

“Roberts and the other goofball, tree-hugging, Luddite moonbats are correct about the science”

its not whether they are right its whether the scientist are, of the almost 300 major peer reviewed papers on climate change there has not been a single dissent from the fact that climate change is happening and is caused by humans.

these deniers are having a major impact on the pace and scope off eventual action that the world will take. the recent UN ipcc report was highly conservative in its aproach including only facts that met absurd levels of proof. this was done so the denial lobby would get no chance to attck them. if indeed the scientist had been allowed to publish what is agreed on in their community the outlook would be much worse, and we would not be left with targets that ensure that millions of people will die.

so then when it does happen why should these professional liars not be held accountable
