Al Gore said those who do not blindly adhere to the dogma of climate change need to be punished
While speaking at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, former Vice President Al Gore said those who do not blindly adhere to the dogma of climate change need to be punished, EcoWatch reported Monday. Gore also called for a “price” on carbon, a naturally-occurring element, as “smart” investors are moving away from fossil fuels and eyeing companies involved with alternative energy.
“We need to put a price on carbon to accelerate these market trends,” he said. “And in order to do that, we need to put a price on denial in politics,” punishing those who do not agree with what he called “settled science.”
“We have this denial industry cranked up constantly,” he said. “In addition to 99 percent of the scientists and all the professional scientific organizations, now Mother Nature is weighing in.”
Gore led a presentation in which he claimed that major weather events are directly tied to human activity. He also claimed that part of the turmoil in the Middle East is due to man-made climate change.
It’s not the first time liberals have called for totalitarian measures against those who do not march in lock-step with global warming alarmists. Last May, we reported that a number of prominent climate alarmists called for silencing critics by throwing them in jail or executing them.
“GW is different,” said Richard Parncutt, a musicology professor at the University of Graz, Austria, speaking of global warming. “With the high probability it will cause hundreds of millions of deaths. For this reason I propose that the death penalty is appropriate for influential GW deniers. More generally, I propose that we limit the death penalty to people whose actions will with a high probability cause millions of future deaths … the death penalty is an appropriate punishment for GW deniers who are so influential that one million future deaths can with high probability to traced to their personal actions.”
Global warming activists have also launched a campaign to silence dissent among weathermen and House Democrats once claimed global warming will drive women into prostitution. Some environmentalists have called for an end to industrialized civilization, while others have advocated no growth for a period of twenty years. One movement has even advocated voluntary human extinction.
It’s unclear if Gore agrees with Parncutt, or those who want the entire human race eradicated, but the former vice president once celebrated Reddit’s move to ban those who disagree with the climate-change agenda. “Climate deniers can no longer spread disinformation on @Reddit’s science forum,” he said in a tweet.
