Global warming causing ‘settled science’ crowd to attempt to silence dissent

If Einstein claimed special relativity to be “settled mathematics” but then petitioned to silence anybody who asked him to prove it on the chalkboard, how much less serious would he have been taken?

From Howard Kurtz/Fox News:

Charles Krauthammer says it right up front in his Washington Post column: “I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier.”

He does, however, challenge the notion that the science on climate change is settled and says those who insist otherwise are engaged in “a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate.”

How ironic, then, that some environmental activists launched a petition urging the Post not to publish Krauthammer’s column on Friday.

Their response to opinions they disagree with is to suppress the speech.

Brad Johnson (@ClimateBrad), the editor of HillHeat.com and a former Think Progress staffer, boasted on Twitter that 110,000 people had urged the newspaper “to stop publishing climate lies” like the Krauthammer piece.

Krauthammer’s column, titled The Myth of “Settled Science,” doesn’t even really constitute “dissent.” The Al Gore faithful don’t just want to silence dissent from “deniers” — they don’t even want to entertain questions from people who are on the fence.

“Shut up, it’s for your own good.” The suppression of free speech is the hottest new way to “save the planet” from global warming. What could go wrong?
