Misery Loves Company

It just gets more and MORE astounding. Now, a group of individuals claiming to be British climate scientists (names please?)and a person named Bob Ward, claiming to be a previous spokesperson for the British Royal Society, are demanding absolute dictatorial censorship rights over what is released into the public domain.

This group claims that "The Great Global Warming Swindle", a documentary aired on British television, is in error because it is critical of Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth". "The Great Global Warming Swindle" counters that it is not humans that are causing any perceived warming but more likely the sun and/or cycles we do not yet understand.

In an open letter sent Tuesday by these 38 so-called scientists, including the former heads of Britain's academy of sciences and Britain's weather office, called on the producers of "The Great Global Warming Swindle" to remove anything critical of Al Gore's movie - tantamount to direct censorship.

Bob Ward states, "Free speech does not extend to misleading the public by making factually inaccurate statements," he said. "Somebody has to stand up for the public interest here."

The producer of the "The Great Global Warming Swindle" responded with, "This is a contemptible, weasel-worded attempt to gag scientific criticism, and it won't work. I don't believe they're interested in quality control when it comes to the reporting of science -- so long as it's on their side."

As might have been expected from Royal Society, any disagreement with them is beginning to be deemed heresy. The book burnings and hangings are soon at hand for anyone that might disagree with these outright socialists. For a country with cold and greasy food, puny cars, spiked blue hair styles, Carl Marx on a pedestal, pins through their cheeks, and one of the highest illiteracy rates in the modern world, it seems to make sense that their unimpressive scientists would chant HERESY HERESY HERESY! If your life was miserable, wouldn't you love company too?

Opinion: I think it all goes back to this misguided belief that the United States is the wayward children of the UK. For the years that I lived there (in the UK) there was always this mean-spirited opinion that we (the US) were the children that had gone bad. After all, we were THEIR 13 colonies at one time. I loved the old crusty blokes and they bought me plenty of ale at the pubs... but the generations since have always held us in nothing but contempt. Figures. And so... as they say... misery loves company.
