Throw the "Climate Deniers" in Jail

People wonder why there's a reluctance to publicize donor lists. Having a professor of philosophy advocate throwing you in jail is a pretty good reason. Climate change "denial" has a pretty good point right now. The thermometers haven't budged as expected over the past 17 years. 

All the global warming models are running hot or their premises are invalidated because they don't fit reality. When the model of what happens when you get rid of all CO2 production fits the actual temps while having plenty of CO2 production, the model's still wrong. 

And now we are starting to see increasing calls to criminalize opposition to the IPCC consensus even as the scientific ground supporting those conclusions shifts and undermines the consensus. This is starting to look like a dangerous time to be a skeptic.
