Jail sceptics for pointing out the global warming science isn’t actually settled, argues Lawrence Torcello, assistant professor of philosophy at Rochester Institute of Technology:

What are we to make of those behind the well documented corporate funding of global warming denial? Those who purposefully strive to make sure “inexact, incomplete and contradictory information” is given to the public? I believe we understand them correctly when we know them to be not only corrupt and deceitful, but criminally negligent in their willful disregard for human life. It is time for modern societies to interpret and update their legal systems accordingly.

This demand for the criminalisation of doubt appears in The Conversation, a media outlet run for academics and paid for by Australian taxpayers.

The closing of the academic mind…

UPDATE

The Old and Unimproved Dave quotes the famed Australian poet Henry Lawson:

Twist and tangle and mystify, bully, and weep and bluff;

Marry the truth to a glaring lie, and say it is good enough;

Boast of your vice and villainy — in your virtue rant and bawl —

But that great waiting silence is over the people all!
