Thug Senators Boxer, Markey and Whitehouse now trying to Inquisition private companies about funding skeptics

Unfortunately for warmist creeps, the vast majority of climate skeptics have no corporate funding. So the attempted intimidation will not change anything.

  1. This kind of arrogance and blatant disregard for freedom of speech should be grounds for impeachment of these politicians. If the ACLU was truly interested in protecting the rights of individuals, they would go after these people. The proper response should be “None of your damn business.” George Orwell, call your office.

  2. Not even hiding behind a curtain of impartiality. Because they don’t need to. Having won on the point that the science is far from settled, we still find that we have a long, long way to go because they “mean well.” At this point, we could do a comprehensive study showing the finding and scientific bias going to the fear based government control for nothing establishment, but they’d just report the one “Willie Soon non-discloure without actual bias” in the bunch anyway. The foxes are running the henhouse and we are told it makes for sustainable chicken.

  3. It is blatantly obvious that the climate scam is hiding something dark, and sinister. There wouldn’t be the huge effort to “silence” dissenters, otherwise. He that doth protesteth, too loudly!

  4. I would also like to see an investigation of Greenpece’s involvement in this witch hunt- particularly it’s involvement with the Thug Senators.

  5. The Republicn Congress ought to take this opportunity to expand the investgation to all scientists and entities doing government funded climate research as well as authorizing a study on how government funding is politicizing climate science. There should also be an investigation about NGOs receiving donations from foreign governments and the relationships among those who award government grants and those receiving them.
