Even the professional scientists among the Global Warming/Climate Change fraudsters are increasingly behaving more like the totalitarian Leftists that they are, and less like the scientists that they pretend to be. There are increasing, and shrill, calls to shut up the scientists and other persons who question the hypothesis of man made, Carbon driven Global Warming. They do not want public to know that there are serious scientific questions about not only the causes of alleged rise in the earth’s surface temperatures, but also about the rise itself. The questions which have not been answered satisfactorily by those who are driving the whole hysteria of Global Warming/Climate Change. Nor have they proved with any scientific rigour that cutting on Carbon consumption, and thus going back to poverty of the years before the present industrial age would actually halt rise in temperatures if at all it is taking place. Because, as the true scientists have shown, the Sun, and not man, controls earth’s temperature.
And so it should come as no surprise that twenty scientists have written to the President of the US to prosecute the “skeptics” and the “deniers” (that is, those who do not agree that manmade Global warming is real or, that man is causing the Globe to warm) under the RICO laws (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organisation Act, 1970) of the US.

In the list, out of the twenty scientists, at least three are the persons of Indian origin, that is either first generation immigrants from India, or their descendants. That is, 15% of the total. Persons of Indian origin are barely 1% in the total population of the US. It is unlikely that there are 15% scientists of Indian origin among all the scientists of the US. So clearly, persons of Indian origin are overrepresented among the signatories.
Indians are forced to leave India solely because there are hardy any economic opportunities in India. More qualified go on visas to high end jobs, others go legally or illegally to do low paying blue collar jobs. But all are economic refugees. There are no economic opportunities in India because India has been following full blown socialism for last sixty seven years. And the result is that a land that has been traditionally one of the richest economies in the world has been reduced to a third world, wretchedly poor hellhole. There are hardly any jobs for educated and uneducated alike, and starting one’s own business is nearly impossible. Leftists who are administering socialism in India also control its education and media, and therefore rarely any Indian is ever able to pierce the fog of “colonists made us poor” meme, and see that actually it is the lack of security of Private Property and absence of enforcement of Contracts that has strangulated Indian economy. There is no competing narrative of Free Market economy in India. As socialism has completely impoverished India, the Leftists are skilfully diverting the attention away from their failed policies with catch phrases like “governance failure,” “low expenditure on education,” and “low allocation on health.”
So Indians grow up drinking the Leftist Kool-aid in the schools and colleges. and on media. With no tradition of book reading outside their curriculum, they never learn that there exists an alternative economic worldview, and that in the countries of the prosperous west, that economic worldview is actually followed to varying degrees, and that that is what that has made them rich. Indians so unquestioningly believe in socialism, that even as they queue before the embassies of non-socialist countries to go there for better economic opportunities, and not before the embassies of the socialist countries, they are not able to see the whole contradiction.
But what is even more disheartening is that even after spending years and decades in the capitalist countries of the west, they never connect the dots. Even as they obtain permanent residency and citizenship of those countries, they never try to find out the cause as to why they had to leave the country of their ancestors, relatives, and friends; to live among the people with an alien culture. Even in the capitalist countries, they support Leftist parties, they espouse Left causes, they join Left-led campaigns to bar/destroy persons who do not agree with the Leftist worldview.
NRIs in the US led the campaign to bar Subramanian Swamy from teaching at Harvard when he fell foul of Leftists in India. NRIs are now leading the campaign to bar PM Modi from visiting Silicon Valley, because the Left in India viscerally hates him.
And the worst achievement of NRIs is the rise of Arvind Kejriwal. When the NRIs sincerely tried to do something for the Motherland, all they could think of was supporting a Leftist: Arvind Kejriwal. They supported him monetarily, many left cushy jobs to campaign for him, and quite a few stayed back.
All above goes to show that Indians carry with them abroad typical Indian aversion to reading and learning about the world about them. They never try to find out why the society they have adopted is rich, and the society they left behind is not. They never acquire the western habit of questioning every belief, of independent inquiry. They excel at courses they study there, but never learn that rugged, wild individualism, disdain for all authority and received wisdom, and respect for Private Property and sanctity of Contracts; are the ideas that have made the west the rich shining city on the hill that it is.
Sad and tragic, that the NRIs stay immersed in the Leftist mediocrity that is at the core of Indian society, even after they have left that society. This also explains why the persons of Indian origin are overrepresented in the above list of the scientists who want to jail those who do not agree with them.
