Like Ace says: "Sure, why not?"
Apparently, the British Met Office, the nation's chief meteorology institute, has "strongly encouraged" the scientists it has on staff to sign a petition "defending" Global Warming.
And by "strongly encouraged," I mean "threatened to fire."
After all, nothing says "Science!" more than being given the choice of defending a particular viewpoint or losing your job. Between the threatening and the bullying, it really reminds one of the beautiful process of independent scientific inquiry and the free exchange of ideas.
With a baseball bat, of course.
