There are many ways science supporters can further their climate change agenda. They can stage a March for Science over Earth Day weekend, or they can use violence to intimidate other scientists who hold a conflicting point of view. This Saturday, both methods were put to use in Huntsville, Alabama -- resulting in seven gunshots being fired into the offices of two noted climate change skeptics.

Gunshots for Science

Dr. Roy Spencer, a meteorologist based out of the University of Alabama-Huntsville's National Space Science and Technology Center, stated on his website that the shots were intended for Dr.

John Christy, another well-known skeptic who recently questioned the validity of climate science before Congress.

"All bullets hit the 4th floor, which is where John Christy’s office is (my office is in another part of the building)," Spencer wrote on his official website.

Spencer pointed out that his building was along the route of the March for Science, and said that it was "more than a coincidence" that the building was targeted later that evening. He believes that his skeptical stance on global warming was "enough to send some radicals into a tizzy."

Police believe that the shots were fired from a moving vehicle based on the angle of entry, and confirmed that shell casings were recovered outside, approximately 70 yards from the UAH National Space Science and Technology Center.

Christy and Spencer are leading voices in the small segment of the scientific community that refutes man-made global warming, and both scientists claim that they have been targeted before by radical climate alarmists. Christy became a target for radical environmentalists last month after he testified before Congress that the scientific establishment is "corrupt" and that climate science is a "murky" science.

Spencer, who received his Ph.D. in meteorology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, became a Principal Research Scientist at UAH in 2001, and formerly worked for NASA as an expert on climate science. Both he and Christy have been awarded NASA’s Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal for their monitoring of global temperatures.

The March for Science rallies saw thousands of demonstrators take to the streets in cities throughout the country over the weekend. While the demonstrations were, for the most part, harmless spectacles with witty signs and banners, the march also featured its share of radical participants -- or, as National Review stated on Tuesday, those who "often use science as a weapon."

According to National Review, the D.C. March for Science featured three scientists who composed an anti-Trump screed calling for university scientists to stage a strike in protest of the president.

In December, University of Arizona professor John Weins -- a leading climate change scientist -- made national headlines after telling an interviewer that Donald Trump should "kill himself immediately."
