Another global warming advocate demands the arrest of skeptics

A quick holiday fund-raising campaign for Behind the Black!
Scroll down to read this post.
In past years I have managed to avoid asking for donations for Behind the Black during the holiday season. My finances however now compel me to do a short one-week fund-raiser, from November 11 to November 17.
I do not use Twitter for ethical reasons, which I have been told cuts down on traffic to the website. So be it. Furthermore, Facebook has clearly acted in the past two years to limit traffic to Behind the Black, almost certainly for political reasons. So be this as well. Finally, I do not post outside ads, as I have found them annoying to my readers and not that profitable to me.


Therefore, I need to ask for the direct support from my readers. If you like what I do here, please consider contributing, either by making a one-time donation or a monthly subscription, as indicated in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Or with a subscription with regular donations from your Paypal or credit card account:

If Paypal doesn't work for you, you can support Behind The Black directly by sending your donation by check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to
Behind The Black

P.O.Box 1262

Or you could consider purchasing one of my books, as indicated in the boxes scattered throughout the website. My histories of space exploration are award-winning and are aimed for the general public. All are page-turners, and all not only tell the story of the beginning of the human exploration of space, they also help explain why we are where we are today. And I also have a science fiction book available, Pioneer, which tells its own exciting story while trying to predict what life in space will be like two hundred years in the future.


Note that for this week only I am also having a sale on the purchase of the last 20 hardbacks of Leaving Earth. (Click on the link for more information about the book, which was endorsed by Arthur C. Clarke himself!) This award-winning out-of-print book is now only available as an ebook, but I still have a handful of hardbacks available, normally for sale for $70 plus $5 shipping. For this week only you can buy them, personally autographed by me, for $50 plus $5 shipping! Just send me a check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to the address above, with a note saying that the money is for the Leaving Earth hardback.


Please consider donating. Your help will make it possible for me to continue to be an independent reporter in the field of space, science, technology, and culture.

Fascist: Continuing in what is becoming a pattern for the left, another global warming advocate has called for the arrest of anyone who dares question the existence of human-caused global warming.

You can read his entire rant here. This quote is especially telling:

Those denialists should face jail. They should face fines. They should face lawsuits from the classes of people whose lives and livelihoods are most threatened by denialist tactics.

Let’s make a clear distinction here: I’m not talking about the man on the street who thinks Rush Limbaugh is right, and climate change is a socialist United Nations conspiracy foisted by a Muslim U.S. president on an unwitting public to erode its civil liberties.

You all know that man. That man is an idiot. He is too stupid to do anything other than choke the earth’s atmosphere a little more with his Mr. Pibb burps and his F-150’s gassy exhaust. Few of us believers in climate change can do much more—or less—than he can.

This is why, at this time especially, I refuse to cede any further power to government and its allies. A significant percentage of our population is in favor of using that power to oppress their opponents. Give them any more power and they will do it.

    Wow, there are a lot of people in the comments over there cheering on the mass imprisonment of people.

    They keep trotting out failed predictions as if they are gospel and debunked claims of 97% of scientists agree with the AGW fearmongering. And it wouldn’t be complete without the evils of money propping up dissent. The financial support detailed in the article amounted to under $560m over 7 years or like $80m a year.

    That is less than half of what Obama spent in either one of his campaigns and is far less than the Democrat activists spend advocating for their nature worshipping religion in any given year but we wouldn’t know that from the “study” which didn’t look at the funding mechanism of the gullible armists.

    “climate change is a socialist United Nations conspiracy foisted by a Muslim U.S. president on an unwitting public to erode its civil liberties”

    I gotta tell you, I am pretty much that man. Classic Alinski? Make people scared to speak the truth about what they can argue to be plainly observable and reasonable to conclude?

    It amazes me that we think that we are so advance that we can stop the cycles of the earth. The climates going to change no matter what we do, so maybe what we should be doing is figuring out how to live with the changes. But it appears to me that my view would go against them to. Why look at the planets history when you can blame it on the “fossil fuel” bad guys.

  • Cotour

    The term “climate change” is just the most universal term in a long line of terms that they have been trying out until they evolved it into the term that was the most universal.

    “He is too stupid to do anything other than choke the earth’s atmosphere a little more with his Mr. Pibb burps and his F-150’s gassy exhaust.”

    We should definitely ban the Ford F-150. After all it is the most popular vehicle for millionaires. Never mind that those millionaires happen to be small business owners and farmers.

    And who the hell drinks Mr. Pibb anymore? Walmart shoppers.

    Oh and by the way, That 97% of scientists that is quoted over and over? That statistic was falsified. The original study had to be retracted. They had about 3000 respondents to their poll and chose 70 of those who agreed that global warming was manmade to come up with a “consensus” of 97%.

    Asshole like this author and all the clapping seals are NOT going to like the dystopia they are working to create.

    Captain Fabulous wants a unicorn? A unicorn is just a horse with a party hat.

    In order to tackle “climate change” they would deny us all our right to our own lives and impose communism in all but name. Screw that. They would destroy everything that makes life worth living, civil society and civilization. Those people are monsters.

  • Actually that article is not new. It’s from March, 2014. It’s was written in support of that Univ. of Rochester philosophy professor Torcello who wrote in favor of jailing climate change “deniers”.

  • Ah, I missed that. Not that it really changes the overall ugliness of the article.
