Mum's the word on climate change in Wisconsin



The Climate Change language police have struck again. Last month state employees in Florida alleged that Gov. Rick Scott had instituted a ban on using terms like "climate change" and “global warming."

Now climate censorship has spread to Wisconsin. Last week, the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands (BCPL), a three-member panel overseeing public land sales that benefit schools and communities in Wisconsin, voted to ban staff from talking about climate change. The panel voted 2-1 to block public employees "from engaging in global warming or climate change work while on BCPL time."

Sign here to tell Wisconsin Governor and Presidential hopeful Scott Walker that this is unacceptable, and demand that he act swiftly to reverse the board's decision.

12553 2.7 years ago Patricia Matthews Your Board of Commissioners of Public Lands' effort to limit freedom of thought is laughable, and demands that you reverse it.
Otherwise I will certainly remember it and be sure the world knows Scott Walker\'s Thought Police -- how does that sound? Lifted from the pages of "1984" -- in case you didn\'t read it that was a diatribe on the dystopic tendencies of communism and totalitarianism -- which is just the sort of society thought police would create.
I urge you to lift the ban on the words "climate change" - otherwise I\'ll have to congratulate you on becoming (perhaps) the first Republican Commie.'); return false;">...
