Read an article that the DOJ was considering prosecuting climate change deniers.

What if they took away your son or daughter to a “special” training camp. Would that bother you?

Depends on who the DOJ are considering as the “deniers”. If the “deniers” are people in power that affects the supporters who are trying to save our planet, then I have no issues with it. If it’s your average, everyday person, then that’s overstepping several boundaries.

You need to stop watching Faux news and friends ;-)

The video of what was discussed, in context, can be found here and is directed solely at the fossil fuel industry, regarding their actions similar to what the tobacco industry did to cover up and deny the danger of tobacco use (and the resultant civil investigative procedures). Your denying sons and daughters are safe. If people could be jailed for being stupid, more than half the country would be behind bars!

Rayne, Are you saying that the rules of law in this country should be different for people in positions of power and influence?

MrUnix, Perhaps you should try harder to work around your confirmation bias.

Generally speaking, no, but for the sake of the only planet we have to live on, I’d make an exception to those stopping/deferring the issues at hand that’s clearly affecting this small world we live on. It’s a pipe dream, I know.

Lol – what does that have to do with you making an extraordinary claim? How does one’s ww’ing skill impact reason? Post a source or don’t post a source; if you don’t, I’ll continue to assume that you’re wildly misguided, if you do, I’ll probably have confirmation. Not something for me to sweat, either way.

Well, I think the Government claims to man-made climate change are dubious at best. That is not saying I’m against regulating businesses that pollute the environment. Human illness alone is a reason for regulation.

It’s just that government tends to overstep common sense boundaries. It seems to me they (governments) generally create more problems than they eliminate. I consider less individual freedoms as a problem.

When you think about it, how does someone with a government job help themselves by saying; Hey, we really don’t need these particular rules or requirements so lets see if we can get rid of them. If they want to keep their job they won’t say it. They become corrupt, it’s no more complex than that.

Your over aggressive entry into this discussion strikes me as suspicious. Like you might be an leftist troll.

Read an article that the DOJ was considering prosecuting people that post crazy goop on The Interwebs.

Well, the most recent NASA study that fingerprinted the source of global methane increases, the greenhouse gas usually attributed to “man made global climate change”, found that industrial (big oil) related methane stopped increasing in the 1990s. It is actually declining. But the increases since then are related to wetlands and agriculture. That would be the exact opposite of what the EPA is attacking with all their regulatory might.. In fact the EPA’s new wetlands protection actions that got temporarily blocked by congress and the moves against fracking are both 180 degrees out of what is needed.

How is a woodworking forum the place for this type of conversation? This is a little too far off topic.
