An open letter sent to the Royal Society in response to a letter referenced in the September 20 edition of the Guardian.
“We are writing to comment on your letter of September 4 that was the subject of a Guardian article on September 20 concerning support for groups that do not share your view of climate science.
It is, indeed, unfortunate that the Royal Society is advocating censorship on a subject that calls for debate. The censorship of voices that challenge and provoke is antithetical to liberty and contrary to the traditions and values of free societies. That such a call comes from such a venerable scientific society is disturbing and should raise concerns worldwide about the intentions of those seeking to silence honest debate and discussion of our most challenging environmental issue– climate change.”
