Vatican to skeptic asking question at conference: ‘You have to control yourself or you will be escorted out of here.’

The Vatican finally takes a strong stance against those challenging ‘CO2-centricism’

Round Up of recent examples of global warming establishment suppressing dissent: 

The Hill features Climate Depot: ‘Climate debate turns nasty’ – Morano: Warmists ‘are trying to clear out any remaining roadblocks’ to EPA regs and UN treaty – “I believe that the global warming promoters are the ones on the offensive on this,” said Marc Morano, who publishes a climate skeptic blog. “The skeptics are clearly reacting right now.” Morano said the increase in nasty rhetoric may be related to pressure building from the Obama administration’s drive to finalize regulations on power plants, which has angered Republicans and industry groups. The push for a new United Nations climate pact also has people on edge. “The global warming promoters are so close to what they consider final victory that they’re trying to clear out any remaining roadblocks,” Morano said.

Flashback 2012: Obama Appointed FEMA Dir.: Frequency of Hurricanes Cyclical: Since 1850s ‘a cycle, & its over decades increased activity & decreased activity’ — Won’t Say If he Believes Global Warming Involved – Federal Emergency Mgt. Agency Dir. Craig Fugate: ‘If you look back for the amount information we have going back to about 1850s, you’ll see a cycle, and it’s over decades of increased activity and decreased activity. And so that cycle has been there. As far anything driving that, I’d really defer to climate scientists. But the reality is the history says we’ve had this period of activity, we’ve had a period of quiet’


Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry: ‘I REALLY object to Obama’s ‘denier’ hunt…extreme scientization of political debate by Obama is absolutely pernicious to academic freedom’ – Curry: ‘I REALLY object to President Obama’s ‘denier’ hunt, and insistence on the 97% scientific consensus in support of his policies.  The extreme scientization of the political debate by President Obama is absolutely pernicious to academic freedom and and is hampering scientific progress in understanding this complex problem.’

Warmists are trying to intimidate GOP presidential hopefuls like Ted Cruz if they say anything skeptical on climate See: Warmist Smearing Ted Cruz With Junk Science about ‘pause’
They are trying to intimidate any scientists who dared testify on behalf of GOP in Congressional hearings. (Pielke Jr., Curry, Lindzen, etc.) See: Shocking letter of intimidation from Congressman to MIT re climate skeptic Richard Lindzen
They are trying to ban skeptics from appearing on TV because they believe the debate is over. There is petition drive to TV producers by climate activists. See: ‘Merchants of Doubt’ producer seeks media ban on skeptics: ‘Tell news editors: Stop booking climate deniers!’
