My piece was not about the rightness or wrongness of climate change science. I am not qualified to speak on that (though I have my opinions based on observations). My piece was about the labeling of classes of people “enemies” in order to muzzle them, be it the press, scientists, political opponents, or anyone else who seems inconvenient.
Good point. So many people are going to jump to climate change because that is such a controversial issue, and I am someone who wants to keep these muzzles off the scientists so they can keep explaining it and working on it, because clearly something is up with the climate! But, you’re right. You are making a much bigger point here.
