EXCERPT:

The debate about man-made global warming is literally a hot topic.In fact it’s a discourse, and an empirical prospect,as some would argue, with quite a deadly intensity.This is a report about that debate.The title of the latest book by one of the central scientists in this field is telling: ”The hockey stick and the climate wars” (Mann 2012).

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952
