So much for free speech. Three professors out of Britain’s University of Exeter are calling for the imprisonment and fining of anyone who disagrees with their views on man-made Global Warming/Climate Change.
On his blog, Anthony Watts writes:
Unable to win the debate in the court of public opinion, climate activists are increasingly calling for the imprisonment of climate realists. The latest example is an article in The Carbon Brief titled “How climate change misinformation spreads online.” The authors, who are all University of Exeter professors, advocate fines and imprisonment for people publishing “climate misinformation” online. They justify their call for imprisonment by claiming tremendous harm from “misleading information that is created and spread with intent to deceive.”
I guess in their new world order, it would allegedly be illegal for anyone to point out the errors made by Global Warming alarmist. On that note, Anthony points to the famed animated drowned polar bear scene in Al Gore’s 2006 documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.”
Gore cited this as the new normal of drowning polar bears. The reality? Scientists documented one drowned polar bear at sea after an intense storm, something that hasn’t been seen since. According to an Associated Press article:
“A federal wildlife biologist whose observation in 2004 of presumably drowned polar bears in the Arctic helped to galvanize the global warming movement has been placed on administrative leave and is being investigated for scientific misconduct, possibly over the veracity of that article.”
Social media was the first to point out problems with Gore’s polar bear claims, and they were proven right.

Of course, this wasn’t Al Gore’s only failed prediction:
- He predicted, there would be no iced in the Arctic by 2014. READ: Myth of arctic meltdown: Stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7 million square kilometres more than 2 years ago…despite Al Gore’s prediction it would be ICE-FREE by now
- He also predicted that Glacier Park would have to be renamed because it would no longer have glaciers by 2012. READ: An Inconvenient Truth: Gore Proven Spectacularly Wrong on Glacier National Park
We have all these predictions on what is going to happen 20 or 30 years down the road if we don’t act now. Meanwhile, most people would be delighted if they could just get the weather prediction right for the weekend.
