On Wednesday, Al Gore and NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced the launch of a new organization dedicated to the criminal prosecution of those who disagree with them about “climate change” (formerly “global warming”).
Gore, the former vice president and alleged serial rapist recently made one hundred million dollars ($100,000,000.00) from the sale of his failed Current TV to Jihadist agit-prop organization al-Jezeera, though the sale and payment are still embroiled in suits and counter-suits.
The new war on climate skeptics was praised by Gore as
. . . “the best, most hopeful step in years” . . . the AGs United for Clean Power coalition brings together attorneys general from 25 states, territories, cities and counties to explore ways to jointly support the fight against climate change.
The State AG’s include 16 Democrat members, and one independent. Specifically,
. . . 15 state attorneys general (California, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington State), as well as the attorneys general of the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. Sixteen of the seventeen members are Democrats, while the attorney general for the Virgin Islands, Claude Walker, is an independent.
In this latest power play by the man who tried to fraudulently tap dance his way into the presidency, no opportunity is missed to pretend that there is a “fossil fuel industry” which is lying to the public, just as the Left would like you to believe the “tobacco industry” did.
The fight is not “against climate change,” but against those who
- like to see evidence before making up their minds
- have seen too much questionable behavior on the part of the Univ. of East Anglia, NASA, NOAA, etc. to take Al Gore’s word for the reality of global warming, and
- fail to believe that “the science is settled,” and, worse,
- refuse to shut up and get in line.
One such tactic includes facilitating ongoing and potential joint investigations into whether fossil fuel companies and industry groups mislead the public about the dangers of climate change or the viability of renewable energy resources.
“What these attorneys general are doing is extremely important. These brave members of this coalition are doing their job like they did in the tobacco case,” said Vice President Gore, comparing fossil fuel companies to the tobacco companies of the 1990s . . .
Wow, they are so brave. Instead of arguing their side and presenting their case for the theory of anthropogenic global warming –and doing it on their own time, as befits a private hobby –these AG’s are preparing to try to bring criminal charges against those who present evidence against the theory of anthropogenic global warming. And all at the expense of the public purse.
In Gore’s words:
“Attorneys general and law enforcement officials around the country have long held a vital role in ensuring that the progress we have made to solve the climate crisis is not only protected, but advanced. The first-of-its-kind coalition announced today is another key step on the path to a sustainable, clean energy future.”
Question: Since when was it the job of attorneys general and law enforcement officials to ensure “that the progress we have made to solve the climate crisis is not only protected, but advanced?”
If Gore wants a private army of thugs to enforce his opinions as if they had the force of law, shouldn’t he at least have to pay for it himself? Or, preferably, shouldn’t he be committed to a mental health facility, where he can get the help he so desperately needs?
This latest threat of misusing criminal prosecution to silence dissent is all the more ominous in light of US Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s recent love-fest with Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, as she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The AG testified to her willingness to bring criminal fraud charges against climate change (formerly “global warming”) “deniers” in violation of her oath of office.
She sure must have a lot of time on her hands.
