A coalition of state attorneys general trying to terrorize, muzzle, and extort climate skeptics with legal assaults may have bitten off more than it can chew — and the AGs may eventually have to face justice, experts say. In recent days, an alliance of prosecutors purporting to “investigate” climate skeptics, which styles itself “AGs United for Clean Power,” has sparked a backlash of massive proportions. Now, the group of Democrat and far-left prosecutors is being accused of serious wrongdoing, including abuse of power, unethical behavior, and potential criminal activities such as conspiracy to deprive people of constitutionally protected rights.
Michael E. Kraft, professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, suggested in an op-ed in the Providence Journal on April 11 that the Department of Justice should use RICO statutes to punish “climate change deniers.”
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon celebrated the Obama administration's attempt to bypass Congress on imposing the controversial UN “climate” regime, an agreement to redistribute wealth and restrict energy inked by governments and dictators in Paris last year.
In the U.S. District Court for Oregon on April 8, U.S. Judge Thomas Coffin denied the federal government’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed against “the United States and various government officials” by a group of children and young people eight-19 years of age who asserted that they have been harmed from excessive carbon emissions.
A powerful new documentary takes a fresh look at the global “green” agenda, often marketed under the misleading label “sustainable development,” and exposes it for the dangerous assault on human freedom that it is.
As climate alarmists shift tactics from propagandizing against global-warming skeptics to intimidating and even persecuting them, the attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands has officially taken it to the next level. In what critics are calling an outrageous and potentially illegal abuse of power, the Virgin Islands Department of Justice issued a subpoena for e-mails and climate documents from the non-profit, non-partisan Competitive Enterprise Institute. The CEI vowed to “vigorously” fight back against what it called an attack on the First Amendment and sound science. But the implications of the abuse of power are troubling.
Many scientists try to rationalize the stupendously unlikely coincidences that allow life to develop in our universe by claiming that many universes exist. But are the claims credible?
Last week, a major player in the social media forum world used a legal hack to alert its subscribers that it had been served a National Security Letter (NSL). NSLs are a legal tool used by federal agencies when those agencies are seeking information about an American company's customers or subscribers. Part of all such letters is a “gag order” forbidding the company from disclosing the existence of the NSL.
Instead of explaining why the satellite and weather balloon temperature record shows that there has been no warming in over 18 years, in defiance of every United Nations “climate model,” the warmists have decided to simply prosecute and terrorize their critics with threats of fines, jail time, and even executions.
