Exile?

The Kerguelen Islands?

That’s where climate campaigners have been fantasizing about exiling those of us who dare correct the record on climate.

As if ignorance of science weren’t enough, the warming crowd’s lack of knowledge of history and fundamental civil rights is astounding.  Scratch a Leftist find a totalitarian.

Marc Morano posted an interesting exposé at CFACT’s Climate Depot.

One can’t help but recall The Gulag Archipelago, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s heart-rending account of the brutality of arrest and exile for political dissent within the Soviet Union.   Solzhenitsyn warned us sagely that, ”unlimited power in the hands of limited people always leads to cruelty” and that “all the evil of the twentieth century is possible everywhere on Earth.”

At what point do the ravings of the climate mob move from humorous to dangerous?

On the other hand, if the Kerguelen Islands weren’t so cold and remote, maybe exile wouldn’t be so bad after all.

In his dystopian classic Brave New World Aldous Huxley wrote, “He’s being sent to an island. That’s to say, he’s being sent to a place where he’ll meet the most interesting set of men and women to be found anywhere in the world. All the people who, for one reason or another, have got too self-consciously individual to fit into community-life. All the people who aren’t satisfied with orthodoxy, who’ve got independent ideas of their own. Every one, in a word, who’s any one.”
