The Purpose of Censorship

When people have a stake in an unsupportable belief system, the only way to keep it going is to silence dissent. Communist governments do this because their system of governance defies human nature, as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn documented.

Joe Romm has become a world class censor, because he can’t support the ideas presented on his blog. He wrote a nasty article this week accusing me of deceiving the SEARCH climate forecast team. I posted on his site clear documentation that his claims were false, and he refused to publish it or acknowledge his error.

If your ideas don’t hold up under scrutiny, then your only choice is to try to shut other people up. What a sad and pathetic way to go through life. Sooner or later we all face our maker.

When people say “the debate is over, time for action” what they are really saying is that they have no answer to your question.

    I wouldn’t take it too hard, I noticed the same thing when I read it (before your heavily edited later comment made it through moderation) and just chocked it up to confusion about the calender and the fact that Romm is no doubt using the old calendar. The old calendar put June before September which just makes more sense (why would the tenth month be called October instead of the eighth month?) than the new-fangled calendar with July and August.

    I placed a comment at ClimateProgress once, the only time I went there, in a thread about the Hockey Stick. My comment was about the NAS saying:

    “Even less confidence can be placed in the original conclusions by Mann et al. (1999) that “the 1990s are likely the warmest decade, and 1998 the warmest year, in at least a millennium” ”

    The comment still said “Your comment is awaiting moderation” when I went offline for the night. The next morning it was gone.

    That’s the only time I’ve been to ClimateProgress. I felt like I needed a shower afterward.

    Joe Romm amazingly is a member of my small climate skeptic forum.He is Blogger Joe.

    He joined I think to follow Richard Courtney (who is also a member) to my forum.He had banned Richard for the gall of contradicting Joe’s silly comment replies.

    He never has posted.

    I made it clear yesterday at WUWT,that I visit only ONE AGW believing blog.The rest I ignore since they are stridently dishonest and readily censor “inconvenient” comments.
