Should Deniers Be Censored?

I recently read an interesting article in Physics Today about the issue of censoring climate change deniers. While I agree with many of the relevant ideas, I am categorically opposed to censorship in any form. However, I also believe people should be held accountable for their actions. Freedom of speech does not mean you can say whatever you like without suffering the consequences. Professional climate change lobbyists who are being paid to derail any effort to address climate change should be held responsible for the harm they are causing. They are knowingly committing actions which could reasonably be known would result in injury and death.

So, read the article and see what you think.
