REALLY Quickies: Climate Change Hate Speech.

     Thomas Lifson of American Thinker provides a round-up of extraordinary cases:

     Failing to convince the public that global warming is an urgent cause for concern, hysterical fear-mongers are turning to the armory of tyrants, and demanding punishment for those they call “deniers,” consciously inking Holocaust denial. The recent rebranding of their cause as “climate change” creates a certain awkwardness, as nobody denies that climate has and always will change. Glaciers, after all, covered a good part of the northern tier of the United States, carving out the Great Lakes, for example.

     Nonetheless, the hysterics demand that “climate change deniers” be punished, even killed, and the call extends from the spittle-flecked fanatics to the usually sober New York Times (see below). Christopher Monckton, the Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, has compiled a valuable list of those calling for the abrogation of free speech and punishment of dissidents.

     Please read it all. If it doesn’t make you furious, check your pulse: you may have died and not noticed.

     There is no more vicious, utterly unscrupulous interest group in the world than the environmentalist Left. I haven’t the slightest doubt that the enviro-fascists would hold trials and issue execution orders for those who dissent from their religion, were they reasonably assured of getting away with it. Inasmuch as they get quite a lot of deference and support – not all of it covert – from governments, it’s a prospect with a non-zero probability of occurrence.

It always comes down to this, doesn't it?
