What happens to you when you are a high profile skeptic of the human contribution to "global warming," or don't believe the liberal line that taxes will change the weather?
If you are the President of the United States — who once called climate change an “expensive hoax” — then prepare for accusations from the likes of the New York Times, that you're seeking “to undermine the very science on which climate change policy rests.”
But how can you "undermine" science by simply examining it?
Even scientists who express skepticism face similar ridicule. Allan MacRae was un-personed by his own professional society.
MacRae is a prominent long-time member of APEGA (Alberta Professional Engineers and Geologists Association) who was going to receive a lifetime achievement award for his contributions in 2019.
Then, when APEGA staff learned MacRae had expressed climate change skepticism, APEGA strongly condemned his comments and MacRae’s award was withdrawn. None of his expertise in the hard sciences mattered when up against the liberal politics of his own peers.
Is it any wonder more skeptical scientists don’t speak up when this is how “scientific consensus” is enforced?
Joining me to talk about the professional bullying of skeptics and much more is PJ Media columnist Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition.
