Warmists Call For RICO Investigation Of Skeptics In Letter To Obama And Attorney General

Shockingly, Warmists get upset when I refer to them as Progressives, which were termed “nice fascists” by Jonah Goldberg in his book “Liberal Fascism”. The nice part refers to them doing things “for your own good”. Apparently, stifling dissent through hardcore federal investigations is now for your own good

(Politico) Twenty climate scientists called for RICO investigation in a letter to Obama and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The scientists argue that the systemic efforts to prevent the public from understanding climate change resembles the investigation undertaken against tobacco. They draw inspiration from Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse who said on the Senate floor that there might be a similar conspiracy here, and a civil trial could provide the tools of discovery needed to find out. http://bit.ly/1F3bue2

That letter (at the link) states

Dear President Obama, Attorney General Lynch, and OSTP Director Holdren,

As you know, an overwhelming majority of climate scientists are convinced about the potentially serious adverse effects of human-induced climate change on human health, agriculture, and biodiversity. We applaud your efforts to regulate emissions and the other steps you are taking. Nonetheless, as climate scientists we are exceedingly concerned that America’s response to climate change – indeed, the world’s response to climate change – is insufficient. The risks posed by climate change, including increasing extreme weather events, rising sea levels, and increasing ocean acidity – and potential strategies for addressing them – are detailed in the Third National Climate Assessment (2014), Climate Change Impacts in the United States. The stability of the Earth’s climate over the past ten thousand years contributed to the growth of agriculture and therefore, a thriving human civilization. We are now at high risk of seriously destabilizing the Earth’s climate and irreparably harming people around the world, especially the world’s poorest people.

We appreciate that you are making aggressive and imaginative use of the limited tools available to you in the face of a recalcitrant Congress. One additional tool – recently proposed by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse – is a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) investigation of corporations and other organizations that have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, as a means to forestall America’s response to climate change. The actions of these organizations have been extensively documented in peerreviewed academic research (Brulle, 2013) and in recent books including: Doubt is their Product (Michaels, 2008), Climate Cover-Up (Hoggan & Littlemore, 2009), Merchants of Doubt (Oreskes & Conway, 2010), The Climate War (Pooley, 2010), and in The Climate Deception Dossiers (Union of Concerned Scientists, 2015). We strongly endorse Senator Whitehouse’s call for a RICO investigation.

The methods of these organizations are quite similar to those used earlier by the tobacco industry. A RICO investigation (1999 to 2006) played an important role in stopping the tobacco industry from continuing to deceive the American people about the dangers of smoking. If corporations in the fossil fuel industry and their supporters are guilty of the misdeeds that have been documented in books and journal articles, it is imperative that these misdeeds be stopped as soon as possible so that America and the world can get on with the critically important business of finding effective ways to restabilize the Earth’s climate, before even more lasting damage is done.

You can see the list of fascist signatories at the link, or over at Climate Depot, where Marc Morano writes

Top UN scientist Dr. Kevin Trenberth and 19 other scientists have become so tired of debating global warming that they are now apparently seeking to jail those who disagree with them. One of the scientists who signed the letter was Alan Robock of Rutgers University. Robock has expressed very positive views of Cuba’s Fidel Castro after trips there in 2010 and 2011. See: Rutger’s Prof. Alan Robock drools over Castro and his VIP treatment in 2010 trip to Cuba [email protected] – Robock’s enchanted meeting with Castro: I stayed at ‘nicest hotel…I went in a black Mercedes…I went to private meeting with Fidel & his family…we had photo taken together’

Yes, there are pictures.

Science? This isn’t about science, Roger. It’s all about politics. Let’s not forget all the calls and yammerings to kill Skeptics, jail them, frogmarch them out in handcuffs, and criminalizing their beliefs.

    Don’t you think it is insulting to call the US Navy progressives or nice fascists? How about Pope Francis is he also a nice fascist?

    John,
    If you are on medication, you need more, if you are not on medication, you need some bad. I guess you and jeff are comfortable with arresting and killing those that disagree with you, especially as your religion of climate has no factual substance.

  3. Conservative Beaner says:

    We should have a RICO investigation of all the folks who tell us to cut back on our energy use while they consume more than the average Joe.

    Barrack Obama
    Hillary Clinton
    Al Gore
    Really just about any Democrat politician and businessman like Tom Steyner.

    Include the liars at East Anglia in the UK along with Mr. Mann and his hockey stick. Get all these clowns to testify under oath and let’s see if they still sing the same tune.

  4. captainfish says:

    Teach, it is not politics either.
    It is religion. And just like with Islam, if you are not one of them, then you must be destroyed.

    Islam, along with our own nation’s move towards fascism must be defeated. If not, either one will destroy this nation.

  5. david7134 says:

    Actually, they should be doing fraud investigations on those touting this religion.
