Technology company executives now find themselves in a self-inflicted pickle: go along with China or get lost.
Australia's recently ousted Prime Minister Tony Abbott may have been the first skeptic of catastrophic man-made global-warming theories and alarmism to get pushed out. But if alarmists get their way ahead of an upcoming United Nations “Climate Change” summit in Paris this December, Abbott will not be the last to fall.

Unable to convince Americans of the alleged dangers of man-made global warming using evidence or the scientific method — or even billions worth of tax-funded propaganda and manipulation — a group of self-styled climate scientists want a new weapon to make you believe their controversial theory: government coercion and even prosecution of climate heretics.

Now, finally, there is a real chance that could change. And federal bureaucracy is doing all it can to keep that from happening.
