Alarmist hedge fund manager Jeremy Grantham urges scientists to be arrested

Alarmist hedge fund manager Jeremy Grantham in Nature:

"Be persuasive. Be brave. Be arrested (if necessary)"

"It is crucial that scientists take more career risks and sound a more realistic, more desperate, note on the global-warming problem. Younger scientists are obsessed by thoughts of tenure, so it is probably up to older, senior and retired scientists to do the heavy lifting. Be arrested if necessary. This is not only the crisis of your lives — it is also the crisis of our species’ existence. I implore you to be brave."

Indeed, Grantham is probably right about one thing - it would be nice to see more of the global warming hoaxsters sit in jail.
