Republican AG’s To Warmists: How’d You Like Some Climate Fraud Back?

I’m betting members of the Cult of Climastrology would gnash their teeth and cry foul, complaining about a violation of their Constitutional Rights, and probably whine about “fascism” and stuff

(Wall Street Journal) Eric Schneiderman and Sheldon Whitehouse, call your office. The New York Attorney General and Rhode Island Senator who helped to launch the prosecution of dissent on climate change may not like where their project is headed. Thirteen state Attorneys General have sent a letter pointing out that if minimizing the risks of climate change can be prosecuted as “fraud,” then so can statements overstating the dangers of climate change.

That’s the news contained in a letter that the Republican AGs of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin dispatched to Mr. Schneiderman and other AGs on June 15.

“We think this effort by our colleagues to police the global warming debate through the power of the subpoena is a grave mistake,” says the letter. “Using law enforcement authority to resolve a public policy debate undermines the trust invested in our offices and threatens free speech.”

You already know the game those Leftist AGs are playing, using the power of Government to go after Wrongthink

But the AGs’ letter points out that, “If Exxon’s disclosure is deficient, what of the failure of renewable energy companies to list climate change as a risk?” If climate change turns out to be less serious than advertised, then “‘clean energy’ companies may become less valuable and some may be altogether worthless,” the letter adds.

What about these “green” companies who stated they would produce so many jobs and electricity while protecting the environment, then proceeded to produce a fraction of the jobs and electricity (or went out of business), and damaged the environment, along with killing lots of wildlife?

We don’t think anyone should be prosecuted for engaging in political debate, but progressives have shown (see independent counsels) that they’ll cease their abuses only when the same methods are used against them.

The subhead of the article wonders about prosecuting Al Gore for his exaggerations to help his investments. And, really, it isn’t even so much the prosecutions, as the persecutions, where the power of the State is used to intimidate and cause problems for people who dare to have a different opinion.

    Just another small step in the process of removing freedom of the speech and squelching dissent in this country.

    This is why I constantly say that in 30 years we will certainly be a socialist nation and Im convinced we will be communist.

    The constitution will be circumvented. As long as you guve the kiddies their cell phones and internet and Xboxs they wont give a shit what you do. They are after all only doing what we’ve taught them to do.

    The power of the state may be used to investigate corporations that may have defrauded investors and shareholders.

    Except that there is no evidence that there was any defrauding. It’s called a “fishing expedition” and is against the law.

    On the other hand, the AG’s have over-reached, trying to apply laws that do not apply in order to suppress speech. In addition, they have colluded with other companies and groups to cost Exxon money. That too is against the law.

    It should be remembered that the lead attorney for the tobacco case has said the case was never about injury, it was about getting a settlement. It was about money, and had nothing to do with consumer protection or truth.
