Blasphemers banished from clergy

The Professor of atmospheric science at MIT has a telling quote:

Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves libeled as industry stooges, scientific hacks or worse. Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in the face of the science that supposedly is their basis.
It looks like the environmental scare-mongers who are members of the cult of global warming are quick to boot out any dissenters. Blasphemy against the religion that is environmentalism is not tolerated. Any research which doesn't support the alarmist view of global warming is attacked, even if it is backed up by scientific research. (hat tip: Tim Blair)
