Dr. Hansen is on the loose again, making wild claims and passing unsubstantiated rumors in the name of “science”. (link)
Among his claims is that if you disagree with him, you should be thrown in jail, fined, or otherwise punished. Perhaps he is even implying the death penalty. I am not sure. Regardless, he wants “science” to go back to the good old days where disagreements are resolved with executions.
If this is the kind of science that Dr. Hansen is involved in, then I want nothing to do with his science.
I would prefer to keep science where it belongs—among the things where anyone is free to say whatever they like, where people’s theories are not dismissed simply because of who they are or the beliefs they hold, but for the merits of the theories they propose alone.
