ACT Government supports Killing Climate Deniers.

Aspen Island
According to Section 31 of the Crimes Act
(1) A person who intentionally or recklessly, and knowing its contents, sends or delivers, or directly or indirectly causes to be received, any document threatening to kill or inflict bodily harm on any person is liable to imprisonment for 10 years.
The ACT Government has just issued such a document. In the ACT Government's  2015 ACT Arts Fund successful applicants they list:
  • Aspen Island Theatre Company: $18,793 to assist with costs of the creative development of a new theatre work, ‘Kill Climate Deniers’.

The title of the theatre work - Kill Climate Deniers - could be considered an incitement to commit the crime of murder. Persons of Interest: ACT Government and the  Aspen Island Theatre Company.

Aspen Island is a man-made island on a man-made lake in a man-made capital city. This is all real. However - Man-made Global Warming is a computer generated hoax. That makes this blogger a man-made global warming denier.  But not a climate denier.

What a stupid term!

Who would deny climate?  What is Climate?

From Bob Carter's TAXING AIR:

What is climate?

Climate is the long term average of the weather, and it shapes our lives.
We all live with the weather every day.Thus we understand intuitively what weather is, and that it is above all changeable. Climate is simply the annually recurring patterns of weather, averaged over the longer term. 
Bob also covers the use of the word "denier"
Perjorative name-calling is the stuff of politics, not science. 
It is the mark of a scientific debate that participants confine their discussion to unemotional examination of the factual and theoretical material in hand. How can it be, then, that virtually every public discussion of the global warming problem involves the use of perjorative, ad hominem terms such as climate sceptic, climate denier, contrarian, rejectionist, obscurantist, confusionist or flat-Earther; and in description of those who hold the opposing point of view — climate alarmist, climatist or warmaholic. These terms range from descriptive (alarmist) through amusing (warmaholic) and silly (sceptic) to deliberately offensive (denier) 
Spooner: From Taxing Air

Surely the Alarmists were denying climate (change) when they created the fraudulent hockey stick graph. They tried to suppress the MWP and deny the LIA. They tried to deny climate. They being, inter alia, the ClimateGate CRU and the IPCC "scientists."

Jennifer Marohasy has shown (link) how the Bureau of Meteorology has tried to alter the temperature data; they tried to deny a cooling climate by warming (or homogenising) old data.

Perhaps, if the Aspen Island Theatre company wants to aim their barbs at Climate deniers, they could set their sights on the ClimateGate CRU, the IPCC "scientists" and the Bureau of Meteorology.

  1. The A.C.T. office of Jeremy Hanson has been alerted to the support provided for this disgusting "Killing Climate Deniers" production, and I am confident they will do their best to fight this.
