The left is going absolutely nuts in their efforts to maintain the “Climate Change/Global Warming” scam.
As more and more real evidence slips out from the national media-guarded cracks, the house of cards that is “climate change” is continuing to fall.
The latest evidence of the radical environmentalists’ flight from reality comes from California. The Daily Signal has the absurd new developments:
California Attorney General Kamala Harris has joined New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in trying to prosecute ExxonMobil for supposedly lying to its shareholders and the public about climate change, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Times reported that Harris is investigating what ExxonMobil “knew about global warming and what the company told investors.”
Neither Harris nor Schneiderman recognizes the outrageousness of what they are doing—which amounts censoring or restricting speech and debate on what is a contentious scientific theory. In fact, they want not just to stop anyone who questions the global warming theory from being able to speak; they want to punish them with possible civil sanctions or even criminal penalties. As I said before about Schneiderman, Harris needs a remedial lesson in the First Amendment.
Perhaps we should investigate what Harris “knows” about global warming or climate change, which Harris (and Schneiderman) treats as if it is a proven, unassailable, incontrovertible fact. However, as the Heritage Foundation’s Nicolas Loris has pointed out, “flaws discovered in the scientific assessment of climate change have shown that the scientific consensus is not as settled as the public had been led to believe.”
Yep. If you deviate from the doctrine of “climate change” in California, AG Harris is looking for you to sue or put in jail!
Alas, the real fascism behind these supposed “save the planet” kooks is revealed. Despite the fact that, unlike Al Gore’s moronic assertions, the “science isn’t settled” on “climate change”, these liberals will tolerate no dissent from their radical left-wing orthodoxy whatsoever.
The Daily Signal has more:
According to Loris, leaked emails and documents from various universities and researchers have “revealed conspiracy, exaggerated warming data, possibly illegal destruction and manipulation of data, and attempts to freeze out dissenting scientists from publishing their work in reputable journals.” Furthermore, the “gaffes” that have been exposed in the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports “have only increased skepticism” about the credibility of this scientific theory.
These investigations are reminiscent of the old Soviet Union, where Joseph Stalin persecuted those who he thought had the “wrong” scientific views on everything from linguistics to physics. Besides sending them a copy of the Constitution so they can review the First Amendment, residents of both New York and California might also want to include a copy of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s book, “In the First Circle,” in which he outlined the Soviet government’s suppression of dissenting scientists and engineers.
What makes this even worse is the fact that other public officials also want those who question this scientific theory investigated, prosecuted, and punished. According to the Times story, these include Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., and Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Calif., who have sent letters to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Securities and Exchange Commission “calling for federal investigation of securities fraud and violations of racketeering, consumer protection, truth in advertising, public health, shareholder protection or other laws.”
This “green witch hunt” is very reminiscent of the old Soviet Union, Communist China, and current North Korea and their numerous “purges” of those deemed disloyal to the state and the state’s “official” position on everything.
Rush Limbaugh hit the nail on the head a number of years ago when he revealed that the radical environmental movement has become the new home for global Communists and socialists.
Now that their alarmist ship is sinking fast, they are becoming tyrannical to preserve their lies and fraud.
And, let us not discount the financial motives. “Green energy” and “climate change intervention” are huge businesses world-wide.
Even committed socialists like Barack Obama love to “spread the wealth around” to their “green” cronies.
