Climate expert Marc Morano at Climate Depot said such threats weren’t new.
Morano cited Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s threat to “jail” his opponents, accusing the Koch brothers of “treason” over the issue.
The “warmist” Gawker website, Morano pointed out, wrote: “Arrest Climate-Change Deniers.”
In 2009, he noted, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman accused congressmen who voted against climate cap-and-trade bill of “treason against the planet.”
The threats have been more that just for legal prosecution and punishment, Morano reported.
“On June 5, 2009, Joe Romm of Climate Progress defended a posting on his website warning that climate skeptics would be strangled in bed for rejecting the view that we face a man-made climate crisis,” Climate Depot reported. “‘An entire generation will soon be ready to strangle you and your kind while you sleep in your beds,’ warned the message posted on Climate Progress,” he wrote.
Romm later insisted it was “not a threat but a prediction,” Climate Depot said.
Climate Depot posted: “The warmists have it exactly backwards. It is the global warming proponents who are guilty of the tobacco tactics.”
