Senator Whitehouse (D-RI) is calling for RICO investigations of skeptics and fossil fuel companies. California legislators writing a bill allowing for the prosecution of climate change dissent—fortunately it died this past Thursday. Seventeen State Attorney Generals investigating Exxon. Calls to silence skeptical views are becoming more frequent. A number of major US newspapers are prohibiting discussion of Skeptical views. This theme parallels the Social Justice Warriors efforts to impose their view of politically correct and thus allowable speech. The First Amendment to the Constitution is under siege by the media and the government itself. The Amendment was designed to prevent the Government from squashing dissenting views and is often considered the medias first line of defense from the government crackdowns such as are common in socialist, communist and dictatorial governments (e.g. Venezuela, China and Iran.)
From an earlier Climate Change Sanity blog:
”Climate science acts like it is fighting a holy war. There are only those who are just and those who must be silenced and stopped at all costs. Anyone who mounts reasonable logical, empirical, or skeptical challenges to the orthodoxy must be ruined, not by counterfactual evidence, but by vicious attack”.
Obviously the warmers are not winning the hearts and minds of free people. One reason for this is that the disinformation primarily comes from the warmers. The predictions of catastrophe are many and they have not come true. And you do not need to be a climate scientist to understand how the warmers continue to get it wrong. The mainstream media is complicit in the distribution of this disinformation.
Look at these postings where you can get some idea of how poor their predictions are:
CAGW Predictions –Zombie And Others
Quotes from the Founders Of the Global Warming Movement
More Green Predictions Are Way Off Base
5 IPCC Assessments Don’t Show Correlation Of Temperature and Severe Weather
How Reliable Are Climate Models?
And some stories of manipulation of Data to get the results they want
Can We Trust the EPA Secrete Science
Doctor Brown and Temperature Tampering
Research Papers Show IPCC Climate Sensitivity Are Too High
And Bjon Lomborg shows how just a fraction of the money wasted on these erroneous green studies could really make a difference in people’s lives:

These are just a few of postings on Climate Change Sanity that show you need to be a skeptic.
And please contact you legislators and tell them to protect the public from those who want to take away our First Amendment rights.
