This will outrage anyone who isn’t a global warming alarmist – environmental extremists are colluding with the government to prosecute “climate change deniers:”
In the hours before they took the stage for their March 29 press conference, Democratic attorneys general received a secret briefing from two top environmentalists on pursuing climate change dissenters.
Peter Frumhoff of the Union of Concerned Scientists and the Climate Accountability Institute’s Matt Pawa spent 45 minutes each providing talking points behind the scenes on “the imperative of taking action now” and “climate change litigation,” according to a cache of emails released over the weekend by the free market Energy & Environmental Legal Institute.
For climate change groups, the New York press event was the culmination of four years of planning and advocacy in support of an explosive proposition: using the legal system to link fossil fuel firms and others challenging the catastrophic global warming consensus to fraud and even racketeering, the emails and other documents show.
The effort paid off. At the press conference, which included former Vice President Al Gore, a coalition of 16 Democratic attorneys general and one independent — Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude E. Walker — announced that they would use the power of state government to explore legal avenues to challenge climate change dissent.
Four of the attorneys general have reportedly launched investigations into Exxon Mobil Corp., and Mr. Walker has issued a subpoena for 10 years worth of climate change documents and communications from the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a free market think tank.
The sinister attack on free speech rights from many of our country’s attorneys general is a danger to all Americans and, to make it worse, now we find out it’s the machinations of a powerful, deep-pocketed climate change cabal.
This is no longer a fringe-movement of kooks like guys who play scientists on TV and socialist presidential candidates who want to jail the people who know the science is still out on whether humans are contributing to the earth’s natural climate changes. This is our justice system going after dissenters.
These are scary times, my friends! Who will be next to be subpoenaed for thought crimes?
