Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear. –Harry S. Truman, Special Message to the Congress on the Internal Security of the United States, 8 August 1950

The free communication of thoughts and of opinions is one of the most precious rights of man: any citizen thus may speak, write, print freely, except to respond to the abuse of this liberty, in the cases determined by the law. –Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (1789), Article XI

A popular weatherman announced Saturday evening that he has been sacked by leading French news channel France Télévisions for publishing a book which accused top climate change experts of misleading the world about the threat of global warming. The announcement comes four days after France Télévisions chief Delphine Ernotte told French MPs that Verdier had been summoned to a formal interview that could lead to his dismissal. —France 24, 1 November 2015

Over the weekend, news emerged that the decision by French weatherman Philippe Verdier to come out as a sceptic has resulted in swift retribution. “The Head of Weather France 2, away from the antenna to its challenges to the consequences of global warming, aired Saturday night, a video claiming he was fired by the public channel.” Last year, Roy Spencer was widely criticised for referring to global warming Nazis. But as the list of those who have lost their jobs for questioning the orthodoxy grows, you have to ask yourself, was Spencer wrong? –Andrew Montford, Bishop Hill, 2 November 2015

    Shouldn’t it be madam Guillotine rather than a noose?

    Like in 1945, in 20 years time a large proportion of the French population will all be claiming to have been a modern day maquisards.

    Wow, the enlightened lords of climate are not going to stop, are they?

  7. ‘Shouldn’t it be madam Guillotine rather than a noose?’

    Initially it was ‘..a la lanterne!’ (string ’em up on lamp-posts); ‘she’ followed later.

    “As the United Nations gears up for its next international conference on climate change in Paris next month (COP 21), a scathing white paper released by a society of French mathematicians calls its fight against global warming “absurd” and “a costly and pointless crusade”.

    “You would probably have to go quite a long way back in human…history to find [such a] mad obsession,” according to a translated summary of the document released in September by the Paris-based Société de Calcul Mathématique SA.”

    Do we need to start a slush fund to pay for his lawer(s) to sue the pants off them?

  11. hunter says:

    The USA and the West are perilously close to fulfilling President Truman’s prophecy.
    All over the fear and hype of a vocal group of climate extremists.
