Galileo?: US gov’t mulled prosecuting climate doubters


From Breitbart:

US Attorney General: We’ve ‘Discussed’ Prosecuting Climate Change Deniers

“This matter has been discussed. We have received information about it and have referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action on,” said Attorney General Loretta Lynch, responding to a question from green activist Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)4% at a Senate Judiciary Hearing.…

Perhaps the kind of RICO action Whitehouse has in mind is similar to the one proposed to President Obama a few months ago by a number of key climate scientists, led by one Jagadish Shukla of George Mason University.

However this campaign appears to have gone mysteriously quiet of late.

Could it perhaps be that having become embroiled in “the largest science scandal in US history” … More.

Galileo? As science becomes ever more an established religion, it acquires the expected deformities. Including the use of the law to prosecute those who offer a different interpretation of the evidence.

This time, presumably, the government is saving the planet, rather than our souls. Or so they say. Their efforts are likely to be just about as useful.

Obama is not a real president because he said he was to be president because of identity. Many voted on this point too. he is the first illegitimate president in history in america by contract of the people with the government. Anyways. Any attempt to attack and control opinion and speech on any matter is a break with contract of the people and their gov't. So no more obedience if they do this. The conservative republicans should be saying so but with these trump tyupes there is no hope. I can't pronounce the name of the person mentioned and thats also a problem here. It is thought, speech, action control on a free people. if afraid of so few deniers then what if there were more? would there be concentration camps? Yes with these historic types and their beliefs. THEY ARE FANATIC. They are enemies .Robert Byers
