Science Prison

People who don’t believe in “Climate Change” should be thrown in prison, according to… this guy.  Whoever the fuck “Adam Weinstein” is, he’s gonna rewrite the criminal code:

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.

But don’t worry — it’s not you and me he wants to throw in jail.  According to Mr. Weinstein (who?), we’re just “idiots” who are

too stupid to do anything other than choke the earth’s atmosphere a little more with [our] Mr. Pibb burps and [our] F-150′s gassy exhaust.

So we’re off the hook.  But it’s off to the gulag for

Rush and his multi-million-dollar ilk in the disinformation business. I’m talking about Americans for Prosperity and the businesses and billionaires who back its obfuscatory propaganda. I’m talking about public persons and organizations and corporations for whom denying a fundamental scientific fact is profitable, who encourage the acceleration of an anti-environment course of unregulated consumption and production that, frankly, will screw my son and your children and whatever progeny they manage to have.

Those malcontents must be punished and stopped.

Because that’s what “science” does, right?  If you can’t convince people with your reason and evidence, you lock ’em up and throw away the key.  Because Science.

Eppur si muove indeed, Mr. Weinstein.  And is it just me, or does an unhinged screed about a “malicious, profiteering quietist agenda” and the incarceration of its proponents sound a little extra-disturbing coming from a guy named Weinstein?
