David Holland is seeking prosecutions against some of Britain's most eminent academics for allegedly holding back information in breach of disclosure laws.As I noted in that original post, the free flow of information (whether right or wrong--and the right to challenge that information), promotes the discovery of truth and freedom and the free exchange of ideas. Suppressing information does the opposite. It's a lesson some still need to learn. As groups like FIRE expose more and more of academia's suppression of free speech and thought and as this "global-warming" scam story has now gone viral, perhaps we're reaching a tipping point regarding those in academia who think their ideas are the only ones the public should know about.
**Some afterthoughts . . . Who designed -"invented"- the internet? No, it wasn't Al Gore. The government came up with the technology primarily for the purpose of communication in the event of a nuclear attack, right? It was also first widely used by scientific researchers. Who has been pushing this theory of man-made global warming? The government and scientists. What technology allowed someone to expose the global-warming scam? The internet. More poetic justice. God does have a sense of humor, doesn't He? God bless the hacker who exposed these frauds. He is a hero.
