Time to Convict Global Warming Scam Artists

Democratic attorney generals are using their office to bully global warming skeptics.   A coalition of thugs have threatened to use their office as a means to shut up businesses, think tanks and others for having the audacity to question an industry infested with green energy scam artists.  But that knife cuts both ways.  Here is an excerpt from the Washington Times:

The “cuts both ways” argument was among those raised by 13 Republican attorneys general in a letter urging their Democratic counterparts to stop using their law enforcement power against fossil fuel companies and others that challenge the climate change catastrophe narrative.

Consider carefully the legal precedent and threat to free speech, said the state prosecutors in their letter this week, headed by Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange.

“If it is possible to minimize the risks of climate change, then the same goes for exaggeration,” said the letter. “If minimization is fraud, exaggeration is fraud.”

The letter comes as Exxon Mobil fights off subpoenas by two prosecutors — Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey and Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude E. Walker — for decades’ worth of climate-related documents and communications with academics, universities and free-market think tanks.

 So let it be written, so let be done.  We can start with Al Gore and work our way through the government grant schemers who’ve defrauded the American taxpayers with bogus studies and then we can go after the international scammers at the United Nations. 

I say bring it on!
