    Is climate change denial a crime?

    there is no reason to denial climate change. Whatever the cause may be the climate of the earth is changing rapidly. There will be more draughts and floods. We and governments have to act and be conscious about our cations related to nature. Can we say that now so many is at stake that climate change denial is an offence against humanity and nature and therefore a crime?

    Your country damn near ruined itself because of your 'green economy' and you want to make it a crime to question dubious researchers, decades of failed predictions and outright falsification of data masquerading as 'science'?? That is one of the most illiberal things I've ever heard.

    If you have such a strong position why would you want to make it a crime to question your assertions? That is what people try to do when they know that their conclusions will not hold up to scrutiny, when you cannot support your position with good data and facts, you simply try to silence the opposition.

    That is not only anti-science, it's fascism. Apparently the spirit of Franco lives on in the enviro-wackos of Spain.

      The only dubious research and data falsifications are those committed by those who deny the undeniable truth of climate change. It's not a coincidence that 10 of the hottest years on record have occurred in the last 17 years.

      The evidence is overwhelming.rising sea level. Global Temperature measurements. In fact it's difficult to find a scientist in the field who will say that climate change is a hoax. It's dangerous to do so because we have to work at a solution.

    Well you see in America there's this little thing called "Freedom of Speech"...

      Luckily there is. But the word can be more powerful then the sword and and can poison minds. (as Fox channel does) That said I agree with you that Freedom of speech is Gold.

      Freedom of speech may work for the average person, it does not absolve professionals (e.g. journalists, politicians, etc) from their fiduciary and ethical duties and obligations.

    Man made climate change is now a religious belief and to dissent is to commit blasphemy and being an Atheist, I have no problem in committing such a heinous crime.
    Every form of weather is now evidence of 'climate change, but when challenged the evidence is switched to another truth and the mere disagreement is, in itself, evidence of climate change.
    "Last week Secretary of State John Kerry warned graduating students at Boston College of the "crippling consequences" of climate change. "Ninety-seven percent of the world's scientists," he added, "tell us this is urgent."
    The problem here is that he failed to substantiate the 97%. Climate fear wolves are prone to make statements, as are theists, to engender fear, as in the threat of hell and it is always a fact, that is always pending, always present, but never there
    In 1997 31,000 scientists wrote and 'signed' a petition to the government indicating their disagreement with the assertions of Global Warming enthusiasts, this, however received no press or acknowledgement by the government. http://www.petitionproject.org/
    For many, those who protest such claims by the fear wolves are on the payroll of the fossil fuel companies. This is and is not true, but all those who promote climate change and that government must take control of all things to save the planet are on the government payroll and or recipient of government grants.
    As history will demonstrate government is always to be trusted as it only functions in the best interest of the people and there is no evidence to the contrary.
    When logical arguments fail scrutiny, as have arguments for man made climate change, those who oppose the failed arguments are vilified, labeled, as religion will do in the case of sinners, unbelievers and haters of a religious truth or political agenda.

      What has climate change to do we Atheism!!! and a signed petition 18 years old !!!! Give me a break. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to see that with those billions of people on this world, we do make an environmental impact.

      People probably chose not to report on that petition because there are several things that make it not all that revolutionary, interesting, or even relevant.

    Al Gore became a multi-millionaire selling us all on global warming and yet he bought a beach house he claims will be under water in less than 10 years? I for one would listen to men who have studied all this for a living and know what they are talking about but no one wants to listen to. We are each accountable for what we believe and owe it to look at the whole picture not just the most popular. There is plenty of info out there to look at when someone crying wolf has much to gain. Look at both sides before judging. Might be surprised. Haven't we always had global changing? Is it a new thing?

      Indeed, you should not listen to multi millionaires, but I think that if 97% of climate scientists agree that climate change is real we should believe them.
