I have no time to write right now, but this is worth perusing for discussion later:
An attempt to block the DVD release of The Great Global Warming Swindle displays contempt for free speech.
Several issues spring to mind:
- With freedom comes responsibility
- Freedom to misrepresent science and scientists places a responsibility upon misrepresenters to be answerable to the public
- Acting in the public interest is to be encouraged; acting against it is to be discouraged
- Manipulation of public opinion by special interests merits special attention in these days of highly organised think-tanks and well-oiled policy-making machines
