The Conversation becomes a lecture

The Conversation has always been heavily behind the alarmist side of the climate debate, and has featured in this blog many times in the past.

Now however it has taken the extraordinary step of banning any dissenting views on climate:

Climate change deniers, and those shamelessly peddling pseudoscience and misinformation, are perpetuating ideas that will ultimately destroy the planet. As a publisher, giving them a voice on our site contributes to a stalled public discourse.

That’s why the editorial team in Australia is implementing a zero-tolerance approach to moderating climate change deniers, and sceptics. Not only will we be removing their comments, we’ll be locking their accounts.

There is a huge range of dissenting opinion, from outright “denial” to educated and careful scientific critique, but we can be sure that The Conversation will interpret the ban as widely as possible so that nothing disrupts the desired consensus viewpoint. No doubt will be allowed.

The Catholic Church had the same idea when they sentenced Galileo to house arrest for “falsely” claiming the Earth orbited the Sun. Look how that worked out…

We really haven’t come that far since the 1600s.

  1. The new Dark Ages have arrived. We have our ‘leaders” lectured by a retarded kid from Sweden. We have a Prime Minister apologizing for attending a costume party twenty years ago. We have so-called “educators” recommending that their students protest something which is nothing more than a figment of their imagination.
    During the Dark Ages following the collapse of the Roman Empire, the rich and powerful blamed everything bad on non-existent superstitious nonsense.
    In the current Dark Ages, concurrent with the decline of Western Civilisation, the rich and powerful insist on blaming everything bad on superstitious “climate” nonsense.

    And the next area “they” will start looking into censoring..cough cough..not censoring will be social media..then the blogs..then no dissent at all…

  3. At sweet sixteen she should be bewitched, bothered and bewildered.
    Instead, she is disturbed, deranged, and demented.
