Thought police: Global warming alarmist wants laws on the books to punish skeptics

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr

Don’t you dare deny that climate change exists, says Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Forget about the First Amendment and free speech, the climate alarmist wants to use the power of the federal government to punish climate skeptics who voice their opinions:

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., one of climate change’s loudest activists, said there should be a law that lets authorities punish skeptics and deniers - those who engage in “selling out the public trust,” he said, in an interview with Climate Depot during New York City’s recent People’s Climate March.

“I wish there were a law you could punish them with,” he said, in the videotaped interview. “I don’t think there is a law that you can punish these politicians under … [and skeptical politicians are] selling out the public trust.”

Kennedy also believes that CEOs of big corporations should be sent to the Hague like war criminals. He added that he believes that Charles and David Koch, the libertarian brothers who give to freedom-minded causes, should be tried for “reckless endangerment”.

Sadly, this is a reoccurring notion from climate alarmists. To them, the climate change debate is over and there’s nothing left to discuss. Instead of engaging the evidence that suggest global warming isn’t the threat that they say it is, alarmists want to silence the opposition, going so far as to take away a fundamental civil liberty like free speech.

Needless to say, the idea is crazy. But we’re talking about the radical environmentalist left, a group that is so entrenched in their beliefs that they believe climate change is a bigger threat than the Islamic State or the nuclear programs of Iran and North Korea.
