Fossil Fuels Using Democrats Want Investigation Into Oil Companies

The witch hunts and government intimidation continues

(LA Times) A Southern California congressman and two other representatives are calling for an investigation of Shell Oil over whether it deceived the public on climate change at the same time it was preparing its business operations for rising sea levels.

In a Feb. 17 letter to U.S. Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch, the three members of Congress said growing evidence suggests there may have been “a conspiracy between Shell, Exxon Mobil and potentially other companies in the fossil fuel industry.”

U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) sent the letter along with Rep. Peter Welch of Vermont and Rep. Matt Cartwright of Pennsylvania, both Democrats.

Their letter cites an investigation published by the Los Angeles Times that reported that in 1989 Shell Oil announced it was redesigning a long-term, $3-billion natural gas platform in the North Sea to deal with rising sea levels from global warming. Despite this and other incidents, the congressmen noted, “Shell apparently decided to fund climate deniers.”

These Warmists, who use vast amounts of fossil fuels to travel in vehicles and airplanes, are simply attempting to intimidate privately owned corporations and the citizens who work for them because they do not like anyone hold a divergent opinion. I think the 1st Amendment gives elected officials the power to do this, if memory serves.

    Better check with SecState John Kerry first.

    …while warning of the dangers of climate change and whining that only a switch from fossil fuel to solar energy, “wind, and other “clean energy” could save the day, the two-faced (both making him look more like Secretariat than a Secretary of State) Kerry neglected to mention that he holds investments worth millions in at least FIFTY “oil and gas related companies.”

    Back when the tobacco companies were being pursued for misleading their customers and investors would you have excluded any investigators if they were smokers?

    An aside: The leaders of the “tobacco may or not be dangerous” crowd rolled over into being professional climate change Deniers.
