Brendan O'Neill: Global Warming's Chilling Effect

The global warming debate is having a chilling effect... on free speech.

So says Brendan O'Neill, writing in Spiked and his own blog, Brendan O'Neill.

O'Neill begins by noting that "one Australian columnist has proposed outlawing 'climate change denial'," and goes on to discuss what he calls a "tidal wave of intolerance in the debate about climate change which is eroding free speech and melting rational debate."

An excellent essay. Unfortunately, the people who most need to read it, won't.
