Dems Want Climate Change Skeptics Investigated

One group of climate scientists is trying a different approach. Dismayed by what they see as a lack of progress on the implementation of climate policies that they support, these 20 scientists sent a letter to the White House calling for their political opponents to be investigated by the government.

In particular, they are voicing their support of a proposal by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) for a RICO investigation of fossil fuel corporations and their supporters, who the scientists allege have deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, with the consequence of forestalling America’s response to reducing carbon emissions.

Seven other climate scientists were the targets of a recent McCarthyite ‘witch hunt’ by Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.). Judith Curry was one of the seven. Rep. Grijalva indicated that was investigated because of her recent Congressional testimony summarizing peer-reviewed research indicating that the magnitude and impacts of expected warming could be less than generally believed.

Noted liberal company Exxon Mobile knew about oil's effect on the climate almost 40 years ago

So ExxonMobil scientists in 1988 came to the conclusion that the earth was warming.  It appears that data collected between then and now refute that conclusion.  It turns out that they were wrong along with everyone else.  Wrong even to the point to where environmentalists had to change the name of their movement to 'Climate Change' from 'Global Warming'.

The "scientists" are saying today that there used to be life on mars but were destroyed by an apocalyptic climate change thing.

Climate change "skeptics" are today's Galileos, being persecuted not by the Catholic church, but by members of the United States government. Awesome.

Lets put all this Climate Change Shit to rest...

We can't change the suns solar cycles... we go thru Ice Ages every hundred thousand years or so... Warming and Cooling are natural cycles the earth has been thru before/

This whole shit is all about 1 thing....  Taxing you for breathing.

Value Added Tax, or VAT tax...  starts at a low 2% for every time you flush your toilet... Then it goes up from there. 4% then 6% then next thing you know, the Robots need to kill you off because you use up too much carbon.

Tobacco companies got in trouble for lying and manipulating data that their products were killing people. If true I don't see how this is all that different.

Is there a reasonable person who actually thinks that the rampant burning of fossil fuels isn't contributing to the warming of the planet?
