At what point do we jail or execute global warming deniers?

What is so frustrating about these fools is that they are the politicians and greedy bastards who don’t want a cut in their profits who use bogus science or the lowest scientists in the gene pool who will distort data for a few bucks. The vast majority of the scientific minds in the World agree and understand it’s a very serious problem that can do an untold amount of damage to life on Earth.
So when the right wing fucktards have caused it to be too late to fix the problem, and we start seeing the devastating consequences and we start seeing end of the World type events – how will we punish those responsible. It will be too late. So shouldn’t we start punishing them now?
Posted by some fucking headcase calling him/herself ‘The Insolent Braggart’, it brackets climate change sceptics within the political and commercial sphere as ‘legitimate’ targets for prison or even execution.
Targets for a brand of homegrown fanaticism that is as great a threat to human life and basic freedoms as any Islamist terrorist movement.
As is usual with extremists who see themselves as self-appointed defenders of our planet and its people there is no room for debate – simply a blind insistence that they are right and everyone else is wrong and thus it is justifiable to take draconian action.
As someone who is not a scientist or a ‘greedy bastard’ who doesn’t want a cut in my profits, I therefore duly assert my right to my own opinions that all lead me to believe that Anthropogenic Global Warming is a scam – a scam that will not only affect the quality of life for billions of people for the foreseeable future but is also a significant step towards controlling these people and removing their democratic rights and freedoms.
I also find it deeply insulting and disturbing that these fascist zealots – along with more ‘acceptable’ commentators such as the media and AGW supporters – are using the term ‘deniers’ in exactly the same way that we talk about ‘holocaust deniers’.
In the case of the Holocaust, very few people believe that there is any question that it did not happen but as for AGW, the jury is still out – even more so after the Hadley CRU leak.
I don’t think I’d find this quite so worrying if it had been a call for ‘direct action’. You always get small groups of whackjobs who want to harass and even murder people they see as ‘immoral’ or just ‘evil’ – abortion clinic staff, experimenters on animals and even bankers with large bonuses – but this is slightly different.
This post reveals a readiness to impose imprisonment and even capital punishment on those with whom they disagree, presumably through legitimate legal process.
As the AGW lobby already includes world governments then the machinery is already in place.
How long before the tactics of attitude and behaviour modification give way to more ‘active’ means of persuasion?
