NOT SO GREEN | Thank you, Judge Rickert
A Washington state judge has sparked outrage among the alarmists, for remarks questioning the existence of climate change and the role of humans in global warming.
During the high-profile trial of Ken Ward, a climate activist facing 30 years in prison for shutting down an oil pipeline, Judge Michael E Rickert said: “ I don’t know what everybody’s beliefs are on ( climate change ), but I know that there’s tremendous controversy over the fact whether it even exists. And even if people believe that it does or it doesn’t, the extent of what we’re doing to ourselves and our climate and our planet, there’s great controversy over that. ”
The Skagit County judge made the comments on 24 January while addressing Ward’s request to present a “ necessity defense ” in court, meaning he would argue that the grave threat of climate change justified civil disobedience.
Some time ago, climate activists noticed they were not winning over the American public, whose opinion was deeply divided on global warming/climate change. They turned to legal venues to promote their agenda, including shareholder proposals and legal complaints.
Those who are trying to change the behavior others by inducing fear and terror are the AGW propagandists, including many academics.
This guy ( Ward ) is a victim of that since he seems to believe it is necessary to risk a lengthy jail sentence in order to make this rather insignificant gesture of direct action.
There seems to be a lot of particularly younger people who have been spoon fed this apocalyptic BS since kindergarten and are truly in fear of imminent collapse of the natural world on which we all depend. Go review the garbage that the judge allowed in the Delta 5 trial, IF you don't see the fear mongering that the left of liberals have resorted to.
