Professor Demands Government Bring Down Its Fist Upon Global Warming Skeptics

The totalitarian leftism that prevails on university campuses sometimes spills out onto editorial pages for all to see. An alarming example is an authoritarian diatribe in favor of using criminal penalties to silence skeptics of the global warming hoax by Michael E. Kraft, professor emeritus of political science and public and environmental affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

Fossil fuels keep the lights on, keep our homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and make cars and airplanes go. They enable our standard of living. Leftists disapprove of our standard of living. Unsurprisingly, they also disapprove of fossil fuels, which they accuse without evidence of making it be too hot outside. Those who won’t pretend to believe them are a threat to the leftist agenda, and therefore must be silenced by force:

Members of Congress have asked the Justice Department to pursue charges under RICO against major fossil fuel companies for knowingly deceiving the public — and investors — about the dangers of climate change… Under questioning by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Attorney General Loretta Lynch revealed she has referred the matter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for study.

In addition, in late March, more than a dozen state attorneys general meeting in New York also said they would “aggressively” investigate whether fossil fuel companies misled the public and investors about the risks of climate change. Several state attorneys general already have initiated such investigations under consumer and investor protection laws.

According to Kraft, there is a problem with this ham-fisted Lysenkoism — it doesn’t go far enough:

Some ask whether such inquiries should be limited to fossil fuel companies. What about extending the liability, they say, to certain think tanks and advocacy groups?

Some such groups have been heavily funded by the fossil fuel industry and have misrepresented climate change risks to the public. That might be a tougher sell, given rights to free speech, but it could be given consideration.

The Obama administration and other nations finally are acting on climate change. But their responses are modest in light of the challenges faced, and they will need to be supplemented over time with more effective initiatives. Will the public support tougher policies?

Not with critics constantly carping that the lack of statistically significant global warming for the past 23 years despite rising levels of harmless CO2 proves the entire theory of anthropogenic global warming to be false. That’s why there is

no sense of urgency about taking action, including the widely endorsed setting of a price on carbon.

They want to set a price on carbon. This should certainly open up revenue opportunities for Big Government, since carbon is the key component of all known life.

Next they will demonize water. After all, water vapor is a more potent greenhouse gas than CO2. Also, lots of people have drowned; so far as I know, no one has ever been directly harmed by CO2.

But first those who won’t pretend that fossil fuels make it be too hot out need to be dealt with:

Those who intentionally misled the public about climate change should be held accountable.

To intentionally mislead is to disseminate information that undermines the climate agenda. If lunatic tyrants like Al Gore and Professor Emeritus Michael E. Kraft had their way, it would be illegal to write what you just read. Even reading it might become a crime.

Thugs like Kraft are far scarier than anything the weather may have in store.

Professor Kraft wants the ideologically noncompliant held accountable.

    So has every single computer model used by Hansen, Mann, the IPCC, etc…

    So true. The sad thing is, this guy probably feels as kindly as he looks, probably thinks he is doing right. Which makes him far more dangerous than a simple thug.

    The best way to stop somebody from exposing the flaws of a false ideology is to silence them.
    If I didn’t know that man-made global warming was a hoax already, the fact that they now want to silence criticism of it completely convinces me that it is.

    Let me guess: this professor of political shenanigans (science my arse) doesn’t actually understand any of the science involved, but “experts” he trusts tell him it is so, so it must be. It’s just like that “97% of scientists” number that apparently has changed in the decade plus it’s been thrown about.

    By the way something, a question that always induces a sputtering conversational rage-quit (but never any real answer): Is that other 3% actually provably wrong, or just considered so because they believe differently from the great majority? Cause, you know, science ain’t, like, democratic. You can’t make up for being wrong with volume.

    The first one that comes to my town preaching this shit is getting the tip of my boot buried in their nutsack. The last three years have averaged below normal here. It used to be funny. But with Dicks like Kraft wanting to jail me for typing the truth I think another approach is in order. I might go to jail but he will never forget why his ball sack hurts.

    But I agree it’s important. I would say less important than taking back the public schools from the leftist public employee unions who both indoctrinate and launder tax-payer money to be funneled to the DNC. But important.

  50. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    It’s mostly Federal grants. Federally funded work that doesn’t have much bearing on current leftist dogma is only biased in the usual ways (e.g., a bias to report positive results over negative results, which creates an inflated number of false positives in most fields). Geology and climate research is systematically biased because you are much less likely to get Federal grants or publish in top journals if you don’t report findings consistent with The Narrative. For most industry R&D, on the other hand, the sponsors actually want honest answers because they will have to face the cold hard reality of the market. If their competitors have a better product, that’s what consumers will buy (plus, they can be sued for making false claims). Government doesn’t have these constraints.

    And so does the University. It’s called “overhead,” or “indirect costs.” Each institution has it’s own negotiated rate, but they typically tack on an additional 75-90 percent on whatever the base grant is, and that goes to the institution as unrestricted funds to use however they want. Which is why it was laughable when they had, for instance, a Penn State appointed panel investigate Micheal Mann during climate-gate. Giant unreported conflict of interest.

    Fortunately I live in a non-unionized public employee state, but I understand your concerns.

    Trump, while having referred to AGW as a hoax in many tweets before becoming a candidate, has been mostly silent on the topic, simply brushing it off as a joke. It’s no joke. The global warming hoax is well on its way to destroying US sovereignty, entire industries, and our overall way-of-life. And it will allow taxation on just about every human activity on earth– a literal taxing of the air.

    And yes, I distinctly remember the debate where Cruz wasn’t allowed to comment on the question, which was very annoying. I agree he offers the best response by far, by saying he’ll shut down the federal bureaucracies enforcing CO2 restrictions, but we need a lot more.

    We need a full-force, head-on offensive attack on the hoaxers and their evil intent. This should be easy, as there are thousands of the internationally-acclaimed scientists who are on the record calling it hoax. Senator Jim Inhofe has led the charge quite well in DC, but someone must to bring it to the national and global level before it’s too late.
