UN BANS SKEPTICAL JOURNALIST FROM CANCUN CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE

 

Is  “Climate Change theory ” just running on empty now?

From From My email in box:

Los Angeles, CA — A veteran journalist and documentary film maker, known for asking difficult questions of climate scientists and politicians, has been denied press accreditation for the Cancun Climate Change Conference in Cancun, New Mexico.

The UN has refused access to the Cancun Climate Change Conference to Phelim McAleer, who is well known for asking scientists and politicians difficult questions about Global Warming orthodoxy.

McAleer was notified of the UN’s refusal to accredit him just days before the international conference opening today.

McAleer produced and directed Not Evil Just Wrong, a documentary on Global Warming, and his reports from Copenhagen Climate Change Conference went viral on Youtube

During one encounter an armed UN security guard prevented McAleer from asking a scientist difficult questions about the climategate e-mails and warned that if he did not stop filming he would confiscate his equipment and expel him from the conference.

McAleer was also assaulted by environmentalists during a live TV  interview.

McAleer says the refusal to allow him access to the Cancun Climate Change Conference is censorship.

“I sent them exactly the same documentation that was acceptable for Copenhagen last year, but it seems they did not like my coverage of Copenhagen and are now trying to silence me and the people who have questions about this process,” said McAleer.

“The message is clear—ask UN scientists and politicians difficult questions and you will be banned from any UN sponsored events. No difficult questions allowed,” he added.

McAleer is a 20 year veteran journalist who covered the Northern Ireland troubles. He has also worked for the UK Sunday Times and as a foreign correspondent for the Financial Times and The Economist. He has worked as a journalist and film maker in countries as diverse as Ireland, Romania,  Uzbekistan , Indonesia, Madagascar, Chile, Indonesia, Vietnam, and many other countries.

Isn’t it amazing that when the true believers still insist that the “science is settled” that the very last thing that they want to do is answer any hard questions?

Cheers Comrades

Where for art thou JM?

    Just more of the same intellectual Elitism that permeates the halls of collages around the world. Just look at the rabid attacks Ben Stein endured for his film “Expelled : No Intelligence Allowed” To the “so-called” “experts, global warming, or evolution is as sacred as any world religion and unorthodoxy or deviation from “the absolute truth” is to be crushed at all cost, Seriously , I believe if this were the 12 century we would be condemed as heretics and burned at the stakes for daring to question their “infallible truths” I have experienced this first hand myself. One of my cousins that I grew up with is now a research scientist working on goverment grants at a major univercity in America. We had lost touch for over 30 years, but reconnected via facebook of all places. everything was going great for several months until the issue of “global warming” came up . When I simply stated that I found it ethically wrong to teach therory as absolute truth, and not to be questioned ,I was attacked in such a vicious and personal manner ,that it was ignorant people like me that cause all the worlds problems….you get the gist. suffice to say we no longer communicate. This is the same type of censorship used by Hitler, Stalin, Castro and every other thug or group to keep themselves in absolute power never to be questioned.

    Isn’t it ironic, that those with the weakest message, on the shakiest ground, and the most desperate for unwarranted approval, always shout the loudest and resort to thuggery ?

    Are you talking about the denialists or the alarmists there Sax?
    They’re both peas from the same pod in my book…
