Nobody Expects The Inquisition

I’ve thought for some time that certain aspects of the belief in climate change were coming to resemble a religion, but I didn’t expect the Inquisition quite so soon:

The heads of major fossil-fuel companies who spread disinformation about global warming should be “tried for high crimes against humanity and nature,” according to a leading climate scientist. Dr. James Hansen, director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, sounded the alarm about global warming in testimony before a Senate subcommittee exactly 20 years ago.” 

 I wonder if it’s possible to have a carbon neutral auto da fe. [Editor’s note: For more on this topic, visit Planet Gore.]
