'Internet should be nationalized as a public utility' to combat global warming skepticism

______________________________



28 Oct 08 - Excerpt: British journalism lecturer and warming alarmist Alex Lockwood says sceptical bloggers need bringing into line, and Lockwood tells a journalism seminar of some options: There is clearly a need for research into the ways in which climate scepticism online is free to contest scientific fact. But there is enough here already to put forward some of the ideas in circulation.

One of the founders of the Internet, Vint Cerf, and lead for Google’s Internet for Everyone project, made a recent suggestion that the Internet should be nationalised as a public utility. As tech policy blogger Jim Harper argues, ‘giving power over the Internet to well-heeled interests and self-interested politicians’ is, and I quote, ‘a bad idea.’ Or in the UK every new online publication could be required to register with the recently announced Internet watchdog.

               Oh, that I were one of those well-heeled interests.
