A glaring example is the current global warming issue ... I would say "debate" but there is no debate as far as the Left is concerned. They have made up their minds that there is global warming and you had better believe in it or they will shut you up. This is going on regardless of the fact that 30 years ago these same "scientists" were trying to jam global COOLING down our throats by saying we were entering an ice age.
Thank you, Jerry Fuhrman at From On High, for your post that brings out the hypocrisy and danger of the Left's school of thought. He cites several sources including the following Washington Times article titled "Global-warming skeptics cite being 'treated like a pariah' ":
Scientists skeptical of climate-change theories say they are increasingly coming under attack -- treatment that may make other analysts less likely to present contrarian views about global warming. Two climatologists in Democrat-leaning states, David Legates in Delaware and George Taylor in Oregon, have come under fire for expressing skepticism about the origins of climate change. Oregon Gov. Theodore R. Kulongoski is publicly seeking to strip Mr. Taylor, widely known as the state's climatologist, of his position because of his stance.

The Weather Channel has been going politically correct for a few years now ... and their new "specialist," Heidi Cullen, recently caused a stir when she suggested all meteorologists needed to buy into her theory of global warming or face being dismissed from their jobs.
Please tell me it's not so ... please tell me The Weather Channel is not getting into the political correct business. I paid extra to have them on my satellite ... but I paid for weather, not lectures about how I should be environmentally aware and what I'm doing to ruin the atmosphere and endanger the earth, thereby causing the alleged global warming.
Stop! Just give me the weather! I can do the rest myself.
John Stossel, co-host of ABC's 20/20, had a report last year that discussed how school children are being indoctrinated into the global warming thought by teachers. Check out A Convenient Lie, an article he wrote disputing global warming. He has led the pack in researching and debunking what Left-Wing scientists are saying ... and he has been attacked by the Left for daring to have an opinion that is different from theirs.
This is an issue I have been researching for a while and intend to write much more about when I have time. I do not think we can make a definite decision about something like global warming ... or even global cooling ... from the tiny little sliver of time we have studied in the life cycle of Planet Earth.
Read Jerry's post. It's great.
