40% of Americans do not believe in man-made global warming. How do the powers that be change that? They intimidate them by demanding their emails on the subject, and harass them into submission by threatening jail time.
The latest assault on free speech and the scientific process is part of a coordinated campaign by a coalition of Democrat and far-left attorneys general calling themselves “AGs United for Clean Power.”
Bringing together more than 15 top state prosecutors and self-styled climate guru Al Gore, the effort aims to crack down on skepticism and skeptics of the increasingly discredited anthropogenic (man-made) global-warming (AGW) theory.
The campaign of persecution, supported by Rockefeller-funded AstroTurf groups, was formally announced by Democrat New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman last week. “Financial damages alone may be insufficient,” he warned, suggesting prison time might be in order for climate heretics who cast doubt on the imploding AGW theory.
“The bottom line is simple: Climate change is real; it is a threat to all the people we represent…. We have heard the scientists; we know what is being done to the planet.” The New York prosecutor made the announcement with Gore, just days before record cold temperatures struck New York as part of the infamous “Gore effect,” in which unusually freezing temperatures seem to follow the discredited alarmist around the world to his “global warming” events.
Lawyer Schneiderman and numerous other politicians hoping to tax the gas of life, also known as carbon dioxide, as if it were “pollution,” claim their theory is true and allegedly supported by different arbitrary (and totally bogus) percentages of scientists.
However, the observable evidence suggests strongly that the alarmists, widely ridiculed by climate experts as “global warming Nazis” and the “climate cult,” are wrong. The fact that satellite and weather balloon data show there has been no global warming in some two decades or more, for example, thoroughly discredited every single United Nations climate model, all of which predicted warming.

CEI Fights Subpoena to Silence Debate on Climate Change
The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) today denounced a subpoena from Attorney General Claude E. Walker of the U.S. Virgin Islands that attempts to unearth a decade of the organization’s materials and work on climate change policy. This is the latest effort in an intimidation campaign to criminalize speech and research on the climate debate, led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and former Vice President Al Gore.
“CEI will vigorously fight to quash this subpoena. It is an affront to our First Amendment rights of free speech and association for Attorney General Walker to bring such intimidating demands against a nonprofit group,” said CEI General Counsel Sam Kazman. “If Walker and his allies succeed, the real victims will be all Americans, whose access to affordable energy will be hit by one costly regulation after another, while scientific and policy debates are wiped out one subpoena at a time.”
The subpoena requests a decade’s worth of communications, emails, statements, drafts, and other documents regarding CEI’s work on climate change and energy policy, including private donor information. It demands that CEI produce these materials from 20 years ago, from 1997-2007, by April 30, 2016.
On March 30, 2016, Attorney General Schneiderman, former Vice President Al Gore, and attorneys general from Massachusetts, Virginia, Connecticut, Maryland, Vermont, as well as Attorney General Walker, held a press conference in New York City to announce “an unprecedented coalition of top law enforcement officials committed to aggressively protecting and building upon the recent progress the United States has made in combating climate change.” Schneiderman said that the group, calling itself “AGs United for Clean Power,” will address climate change by threatening criminal investigations and charges against companies, policy organizations, scientists, and others who disagree with its members’ climate policy agenda.
CEI has long been a champion of sound climate change policy, and opposed previous attempts to use McCarthy-style tactics by officials aiming to limit discussions between nonprofit policy groups and the private sector regarding federal policies. CEI is being represented in this matter by attorneys Andrew M. Grossman and David B. Rivkin, Jr., who recently founded the Free Speech in Science Project to defend First Amendment rights against government abuses.
Using “global warming” and “climate change” as an excuse to tax fossil fuels. And calling these lies “science.”
Talking as a scientist, it is appalling how politicians have corrupted science on this issue. Thankfully most scienists have not been corrupted as we pointed out last week http://aun-tv.com/2015/10/only-24-to-36-of-scientists-believe-in-obama-style-global-warming-ted-cruz-sierra-club-debate/ As you will read below there is a movemnet to try and fire any TV meterologist that refuses to go along with the scam. The scammers are very threatened by the fact the majority of TV degreed meteorologists weather anchors believe “Global Warming” is or could be a scam.
- Only 24 percent of the survey respondents agree with United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assertion, “Most of the warming since 1950 is very likely human-induced.”
- Only 19 percent agree with the claim, “Global climate models are reliable in their projection for a warming of the planet.”
Only 19% agree, instead of the 98% we are falsely told by the media agree.
This essay is the product of years of intensive research and practical investigation into the greatest challenge facing the human race today — Global Climate Change. Its central theses were formulated and conclusions arrived at independent of any political persuasion, scientific bent or academic bias. It is highly recommended that the reader suspend all opinions and judgements about Global Climate Change until the entire essay has been considered. In light of the profusion of hard scientific evidence now available on the internet, as well as the massive amount of anecdotal evidence disseminated by media around the world, the primary conclusions of this essay are as irrefutable as they are highly consequential.
The coalition of 17 inquisitors are calling themselves “AGs United for Clean Power.” The coalition consists of 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.
The inquisitors are threatening legal action and huge fines against anyone who declines to believe in an unproven scientific theory.
