This is very, very dangerous...
It doesn't even matter on what side of this question you stand, or if (like me) you are still undecided, the idea of the Canadian Government actively
investigating whether or not criminal charges should be laid simply because of expression of views that are contrary to the current Climate Change
consensus is barbaric.
What's next, if you challenge Einstein's General Theory of Relativity you will be put in chains?
It’s like something out of George Orwell’s 1984. Canada’s Competition Bureau, an arm’s length agency funded by Prime Minister Justin
Trudeau’s government to the tune of almost $50 million annually, investigated three organizations accused of denying mainstream climate science for
over a year, following a complaint from an environmental group.
It is one thing to have eco-warriors spouting off on social media about how Government Officials who deny the sacred precepts of the Climate Change
doctrine should be jailed (as happened after hurricanes Harvey and Irma). It is quite another for a Government - in a supposedly free society - to
take up the matter, and to consider it seriously!
The complaint was filed by Ecojustice on behalf of six “prominent” Canadians, including former Ontario NDP leader and UN ambassador
It accused three groups, Friends of Science, the International Climate Science Coalition, and the Heartland Institute of making false and misleading
claims about climate change, including that the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide, and that carbon dioxide is not a
When it launched its complaint in December, 2015, Ecojustice told the National Observer it would press the Commissioner of Competition to refer the
matter to the Attorney-General of Canada for “criminal charges against the denier groups”.
It would seem that the combination of activism by the renowned Socialist Stephen Lewis, and the election of "sunny ways" lefty Justin Trudeau, are all
that was needed to suspend civil liberties in Canada.
The investigation, after more than a year (and who knows how many taxpayer dollars), was dropped, but...
From Carbon Tax to Carbon Incarceration?
...it will re-open its investigation should it receive relevant new information from the public
This is very dangerous ground the left is now treading on...the persecution, and even prosecution, of those who would dare to go against the
was targeted by the Inquisition in 1633 for publishing a treatise on his observation that the earth revolves around the
sun. His writings were banned and Galileo spent the remainder of his life under house arrest.
Rhazes (860–932 AD)
was a prominent physician in Baghdad. He introduced the works of Hippocrates and Galen to the Arabic world. His
“western” teachings brought him into conflict with the local hierarchy. He lost his teaching position, he was arrested, and his books were
outlawed. His torturers hit his head with his books until he was blind.
...and many more
Oh...and the "consensus" is not always right.
Alfred Wegener (1880-1930)
proposed the theory of Continental Drift, that Earth’s continents move very slowly and over millions of years they
can move a long way. Wegener’s theory was rejected by most other scientists during his lifetime. It was only in the 1960s that continental drift
finally became part of mainstream science.
Ignaz Semmelweis (1818-1865)
In 1847 Semmelweis, an obstetrician, published evidence that when doctors washed their hands before examining or
treating patients, the mortality rate for women in his birthing ward in Vienna, Austria, was greatly reduced. He could not explain why hand-washing
was effective – he didn’t know about germs – he just saw that it worked and that patients no longer caught fevers and other diseases.
Semmelweis became clinically depressed when his work was rejected. He was lured by another doctor into an insane asylum in Vienna. Realizing it was a
trap, Semmelweis tried to get out, but was held and badly beaten by guards and placed in a straightjacket. He died two weeks later, most likely from
injuries he suffered during the beating.
Nicholas Copernicus (1473-1543)
began a scientific revolution when he resurrected the idea that the earth and other planets orbit the sun. He
published his work shortly before he died. Most astronomers who read Copernicus’s book thought it was excellent work, but they did not believe it
– mostly they still thought the earth was center of the universe.
Amedeo Avogadro (1776-1856)
proposed that equal volumes of different gases contain an equal number of molecules, provided they are at the same
temperature and pressure. His hypothesis was rejected by other scientists during his lifetime. By 1870 it was generally recognized to be correct.
Avogadro’s hypothesis in now known as Avogadro’s law.
