This should alarm every one of us, but won’t

Where there's smoke, there's deadly CO2!

Where there’s smoke, there’s deadly CO2!

NY’s attorney general has begun a criminal investigation of Exxon for climate crimes: specifically, denying global warming.Peabody Coal, it was disclosed today, has also been secretly under criminal investigation for the past two years, for the same “crime”.

If New York has started, count on California and Connecticut’s own media hog, Richard Blumenthal, to be right behind. When mere ideas and opinions that question official state policy are criminalized, the door has been opened. (The opening salvo was actually fired by U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, (D., RI) who has called for the prosecution of “climate deniers” for criminal racketeering) 

Next up? How about the two Cornell scientists who today published a paper showing no connection between eating junk food and obesity?

Or those who debunked Paul Erlich’s 1968 “Population Bomb”, described by Jonathan Last as “one of the most spectacularly foolish books ever published”, every one of whose predictions was wrong, yet triggered decades of government programs to reduce the world’s population via birth control and abortion?

Those who have completely debunked Rachael Carson’s “Silent Spring”, which led to governments world wide banning DDT and thus causing the deaths of hundreds of millions of people?

In 1992, San Jose State University entomologist J. Gordon Edwards, a long-time member of the Sierra Club and the Audubon Society and a fellow of the California Academy of Sciences, offered a persuasive and comprehensive rebuttal of “Silent Spring.” As he explained in “The Lies of Rachel Carson,” a stunning, point by point refutation, “it simply dawned on me that that Rachel Carson was not interested in the truth about [pesticides] and that I was being duped along with millions of other Americans.”  He demolished Carson’s arguments and assertions, calling attention to critical omissions, faulty assumptions, and outright fabrications.

In the words of Professor Robert H. White-Stevens, an agriculturist and biology professor at Rutgers University, “If man were to follow the teachings of Miss Carson, we would return to the Dark Ages, and the insects and diseases and vermin would once again inherit the earth.”

Or even the global warmists themselves, who questioned the official government position that we were facing a coming ice age?

Even in Greenwich, just this year we’ve seen Greenwich Chief of Detectives and incoming Police Chief Mark Kordick monitoring and investigating a local opponent of the Common Core curriculum.

The government is returning to “the bad old days”, when thoughts and opinions, not just actual acts, are criminalized, punished and suppressed. Bad news for all of us, yet a development that will be cheered by the media and all right thinking fascists, like Dollar Bill.

    This Exxon case is extremely significant. Even the very notion of it is highly disturbing. Can Exxon motion for an immediate injunction?

    This is a witch hunt; massively abusive and wholly without merit.

    America has always managed to avoid the destructive abuse of prosecutorial powers which has plagued so many nations today and in history. This case represents a significant wrong turn off the highway over the cliff of judicial insanity and though persecution.

    Apparently Sneiderman hasn’t a clue that such a case leaves absolutely no safe haven for any free thought.

    Dude-

    Now there you go!! This is why I read your blog!! After dropping a Cleveland Steamer on your last post, do you give up? NO!! Do you retreat like the frog army against the incoming Hun hoard? NO!! Do you just quit, and admit that you are a no talent hack, like a normal human being would do? NO!!! You forget about that turd, just brush it off, and THEN POST A GEM!! BRAVO MY FRIEND!! Well done.

    This is truly a watershed moment. Something that ANYONE who values free thought, free speech, and independent thinking should cause them serious pause. It is now open season on “climate change deniers” everywhere. Anyone who opposes “progressive” trains of thought will be subject to the full force of the American Government. WHICH WE PAY FOR!! On any topic the “progressives” so decide. Differing opinions can result in litigation. Almost unthinkable.

    So I find this horrific. Unthinkable. Untenable. But right out of the “progressive” playbook. We are entering a gray, rigid, humorless, unthinking, conforming society, where dissent will be punished. If the push back doesn’t start soon, and hard, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

    We are fast becoming a dumbed down, lemming society of wimps, who have no say in their own destiny. I pity our children. They deserved better.

    Your Pal,

    The Europeans are getting population bombed every day. There will never be enough freebies to appease the invaders. Perhaps Mr. Erlich’s timing was off by a decade or two?

    Happening while the Great Divider is POTUS. Coincidence? I think not.

  5. DUPE ALERT ?
    Could this be a “friendly lawsuit”?
    Invented by Sierra Nature Gorosity Club politicians huff and puff because capitalists have not “honored nature” so get sued for inaction, settle pretrial, tax money goes to Club, & more regulations, then the reverse as in Save Sound on Westchester…State head fake at Exxon or just trying to get better spot in/on gravy train in Paris THIS MONTH!

    Ayn Rand predicted all of this and it is a shame no one will care.

    • George Orwell took a pretty good whack at it too, and all he got was some neo-fascist students wearing 1984 t shirts and shouting down speakers with uncomfortable ideas.

    I’m thinking an aggressive approach is called for. Every time one of these progressive politicians threatens to abuse process under the color of law in order to silence constitutionally protected political speech, they should be immediately sued by the parties threatened. It would FORCE the media to face the outrageously dangerous behavior being committed by alleged but completely fake “liberals.”

    If you wind up reading this Sheldon, bear in mind the great karmic rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, otherwise stated as “what goes around comes around.” 😉

    The libs have turned the State Attornet General’s office into a weapon for leftists. Look what they have dine in Wisconsin and California. Disgraceful.

    The energy industry should immediately shut off all shipments to New York State of its products from coal and home heating oil to gasoline and natural gas. Let the bastards freeze.
    This is just a rerun of the tobacco industry shakedown.

    little known fact: Eric Schneiderman used to go by the name Tradd.

    Stop bitching and get on the gravy train, that is what I want to do.

    The professor who came up with the idea of punishing ‘climate deniers’ (meaning anyone who dares question the massive politically directed distribution of funds to fight climate change) with the RICO act was paying himself, his wife and his daughter over $500k a year out of the tax payer grants given to his climate non-profit – on top of his $250k a year no-show professorship at a public college. All told, over about a dozen years he was given $63million in government funds (!!!) to provide grants to people studying climate change. He pocketed $5.6million and distributed the rest to cronies – and I’m sure it’s a safe bet very little actually funded any kind of research and the vast majority just lined pockets.

    So Chris, want to start a climate change non-profit with me? I want to specialize in climate justice, environmental inequality and using green jobs to fight privilege and promote diversity. I should be able to move out of “Byram” and into Riverside or Cos Cob in no time… maybe even Belle Haven where Hillary trolls for funds.

    This is just another political shakedown like we’ve seen from Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton and everyone in DC. These guys are out every day and night in corporate offices, fancy dining rooms, Hamptons, Greenwich and Park Ave lounges picking up checks for the next election. Welcome to OUR democracy!! It’s no wonder that firms are moving overseas.
