Republican AGs Ask Judge To Shut Down Climate Change Witch Hunt

Warmists have been using the legal system to abuse Exxon and other fossil fuels companies, as well as other private organizations that profess climate skepticism. The Warmists care little whether their science is right: they just want to shut down debate

(Fox News) Two Republican attorneys general have come out fighting against a sweeping investigation into whether ExxonMobil misled the public on global warming, asking a judge to block a subpoena that they call an abuse of power — and a threat to First Amendment rights.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange asked a Texas state judge Monday to put an end to the investigation being pursued by Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude Walker.

Walker, an independent, issued a subpoena in March seeking 40 years’ worth of Exxon communications with 90 conservative groups “and any other organizations engaged in research or advocacy concerning Climate Change or policies.” Walker claims the company misled the public on climate change by downplaying the risks.

But Paxton called the subpoena against the Texas-based company “a fishing expedition of the worst kind.”

Warmists are engaged in lawfare, and in their world, no one is allowed to profess dissent from the Approved Doctrine. Using the power of Government to go after these companies is abusive and violates Free Speech rights, among other rights.

    As I stated yesterday. AGW is political. There may be some scientific basis to their thesis but its a political attempt using science to gain a political solution.

    People like Jeffery and John posting here probably understand its political but they don’t care. They just shout Co2 is rising and the planets warming and you all are fools.

    Its an Alinsky tactic that has been somewhat effective if for the fact that I personally exposed the Alinsky tactics in 2007 during Obama’s run for the Democratic nomination.

    I take full credit for it and began shouting on dozens of websites about what the Dems were doing to the GOP and the right….The first one to really pick up the Alinsky ball and run with it was Breitbart. Sadly he has passed and the Saul Alinsky recognition has died down somewhat.

    I would constantly admonish the right that in every debate the Saul Alinsky school of thought has been pounded into the left…especially on the internet. Heck I see it will Juan Williams on Fox news from time to time.

    AGW is Political….driven by Cloward and Piven and Saul Alinsky tactics….developed by fellow socialists to brow beat into submission any opponents.

    Never forget that….This is just another in a billion attempts to stiffle objection to their agenda.

  2. Jeffery says:

    Clowards and Pivens and Alinskys, Oh My! Clowards and Pivens and Alinskys, Oh My!

    Of course! That’s it! Climate scientists are in bed with the commies to take over the means of production and to insure a guaranteed national income!

    (BTW, conservative economist Milton Friedman also recommended a guaranteed national income instead of welfare, SS, Medicare and Medicaid, and he was no communist. The ‘new’ conservatives only like the part about eliminating welfare, SS, Medicare and Medicaid.)

    Better dead than red!

    Watermelons!

    And you personally uncovered the tactics of Saul Alinsky! Have you the cognizance to recognize that you and the GOP nominee use Alinsky tactics?

  3. John says:

    Of course in “their world” people are allowed to voice their opinions
    However they are not allowed to be paid to perpetuate a fraud
    This is based on the same legal theory that vans your Lord Monkeyton from selling his “medicine” that cures all diseases here in the USA. Fossil fuel companies are continuing to defraud both investors and consumers about the safety of their product

  4. John says:

    Liam you are obsessed with Alinsky

  5. gitarcarver says:

    However they are not allowed to be paid to perpetuate a fraud

    Of course, you never state where fraud occurred.

    But if you want to prosecute people for fraud, shouldn’t we start with actual facts?

    A study from the University of Edinburgh shows that electric and hybrid vehicles emit as many, if not more, atmospheric toxins than fossil fuel-burning vehicles.

    The study, conducted by Victor Timmers and Peter Achten at the University of Edinburgh, and published by the journal Atmospheric Environment, found that heavier electric vehicles produce as many pollutants as their lighter weight conventional vehicles.

    Electric vehicles tend to produce more pollutants from tire and brake wear, due in large part to their batteries, as well as the other parts needed to propel them, making them heavier.

    Secondly john, you realize that the AGs in this now dropped suit broke actual federal law, right?

    Not once, but twice, john.

    Instead of looking stop discussion, shouldn’t we be looking to stop actual law breakers like the AG’s?
