Dem State Attorneys General to police Climate Change dissent

Looks like the States are making an ominous effort to go after free speech. Anyone who denies Climate Change could find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Forget that we need energy as the very lifeblood of industry and sustaining our very day to day existence. Why are we going about this suicidal course? Boggles the mind.

This from the Washington Times:  A coalition of Democratic attorneys general in 16 states announced Tuesday an unprecedented campaign to pursue companies that challenge the catastrophic climate change narrative, raising concerns over free speech and the use of state authority to punish political foes.

“So he apparently has decided that anyone who disagrees with him on ‘global warming’ should face investigations, fines and penalties and be silenced,” Mr. Morano said.

“There have been those who have raised the question, ‘Aren’t you interfering with people’s First Amendment rights?’” said Mr. Schneiderman. “The First Amendment, ladies and gentlemen, does not give you the right to commit fraud.”

Standing beside former Vice President Al Gore, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said the state officials are committed to “working together on key climate-related initiatives,” including queries into whether fossil fuel companies like ExxonMobil have committed fraud by deceiving the public and shareholders about the impact of man-made carbon dioxide emissions.

Two states — California and New York — already have launched probes into ExxonMobil, while attorneys general from Massachusetts and the Virgin Islands indicated Tuesday that they would follow suit. Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude Walker, an independent, is the only non-Democrat involved in the campaign, called AGs United for Clean Power.

Hillary Clinton ‘We’re going to put coal companies out of business’

Five seconds of hell from Hillary Clinton for the bitter clingers in rural America. Does anyone really think that West Virginia will turn into the “Green” capital of the world to replace the jobs they have had for generations? Note the question she is answering at the bottom of the clip.

AG Lynch tells Congress Considering Prosecuting Climate Deniers

AG Loretta Lynch appeared before Congress yesterday. The media managed to cover the topic of the possible closing of Gitmo as discussed. But the possibility of going after climate deniers by the FBI should put fear in every heart. Can you imagine? Going after businesses and people if they do not accept the faux science of climate change? If this isn’t Alice in Wonderland I don’t know what is. Let’s get to it:

(CNSNews.com) – Attorney General Loretta Lynch acknowledged Wednesday that there have been discussions within the Department of Justice about possibly pursuing civil action against so-called climate change deniers.

“This matter has been discussed. We have received information about it and have referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action on,” Lynch said at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Justice Department operations.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) raised the issue, drawing a comparison between possible civil action against climate change deniers and civil action that the Clinton administration pursued against the tobacco industry for claiming that the science behind the dangers of tobacco was unsettled.

“A request for action by the Department of Justice has been referred by you to the FBI. My question to you is other than civil forfeitures and matters attendant to a criminal case, are there other circumstances in which a civil matter under the authority of the Department of Justice has been referred to the FBI?” he asked.

“Senator, thank you for raising that issue, and thank you for your work in this area. I know your commitment is deep. This matter has been discussed. We have received information about it and have referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action on.

Kerry: ‘There would be no Climate Agreement if there were actual penalties’

Here is something silly from a silly Secretary of State for a Tuesday. Of course it has been reported the U.S. is up for giving $100 Billion for our carbon sins to poor countries, but what the heck. Here Kerry opines on two insights on the Global Warming “agreement.”Kerry: Public Shaming is ‘Most Powerful Weapon in Many Ways’ to Enforce World Climate Agreement. The other astute observation?

While discussing the global climate change agreement made in Paris over the weekend, Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged on Fox News Sunday that there wouldn’t been an agreement at all if there were binding penalties for countries not meeting emissions standards.

President Obama, Kerry said, was determined to “get an agreement that would move the world in the right direction.” As such, Kerry said that the “best thing we can do” to get countries to reduce their carbon emissions was a “mandatory reporting requirement.”

In a bit of circular logic, Kerry said that countries would have to retool their reduction levels every five years to meet their commitments, but he couldn’t say there was anything beyond their own word to force them to so.

“The best thing we can do in an effort to try to change people’s thinking is to do this mandatory reporting requirement,” Kerry said. “The mandatory reporting requirement has to be updated every five years. Every five years, it is mandatory that countries retool their reduction levels in order to meet the demands of meeting the curve of reduction to which they have committed. So that is a serious form of enforcement, if you will, compliance. But there is no penalty for it, obviously, but if there had been a penalty, we wouldn’t have been able to get an agreement.”

Obama’s climate change fiasco while the world burns

I picked up this from Always on Watch – (My internet is down, so been slow to post) This should be a lift. This clip is what the Muslim world is thinking of our fiasco President.

This is priceless:

Is he insane?…He’s on drugs? It doesn’t make sense. What did you expect from an affirmative action President? This guy has never served in the military[,] never worked a day in his life.

EPA to study Churches, develop programs to combat climate change

Now the EPA plans to infiltrate our churches with their agenda. Too many churches have already lost their way in forgetting their purpose and becoming political operatives in my opinion. I have my own issues with the latest Catholic pope but that is a post for another day. No, this is evil personified. You may want to check out an earlier post.EPA McCarthy will ‘go after’ critics who question agency 

Here we go with the latest:

Researchers to develop workshops for faith leaders to ‘implement sustainability initiatives within their congregations. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is spending $84,000 to study how churches can be used to combat climate change.

A taxpayer-funded graduate fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is examining 17 faith-based institutions that have implemented “sustainability initiatives” in the hopes of developing workshops to teach pastors and other religious leaders how to change the behaviors of their congregants.

“More Americans belong to religious groups than any other type of voluntary association and faith communities play an important role in facilitating the kind of social transitions that are necessary as the nation responds to climate change,” the grant said, under the section “Potential to Further Environmental/Human Health Protection.”

Obama decrees another grab – Closes vast Pacific area to fishing

While we are looking the other way, Obama gets out that Pen and Phone. He loves the “Monument Act” which makes King George the III seem like a piker. Obama turns his gaze Westward this time. Let’s hit the fishing industry. Let’s close down vast amounts of territory making it off-limits to fishing. Better yet, this will help out China. All in the name of Climate Change. Just another stop along the way. Recall Obama eyes Western land for National Monuments back in 2010?

The latest ocean grab Via Fox News:

The decree that President Obama signed on Thursday boosted the size of the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument, a 77,000-square-mile preserve south and west of Hawaii, to some 490,000 square miles of protected area around a speckling of U.S.-controlled islands—an area that Secretary of State John Kerry, who hailed the move, declared to be “twice the size of Texas.

Weeks after the White House was warned that a plan to vastly expand a maritime preserve and no-fishing zone in U.S.-controlled Pacific waters would harm the American fishing industry and geopolitically advantage China, the Obama administration has gone ahead anyway—with some concessions to make the environmental medicine, administered by presidential fiat, go down more smoothly.

The concessions did nothing, however, to assuage congressional Republicans led by Rep.Doc Hastings of Washington state, chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, who accused the administration of taking “secret, unilateral action” to expand the preserve. He warned that “the economic consequences of this decision will be grave, further eroding the U.S. seafood industry and harming the well-being of the U.S. territories.” Keep reading…

 Fox News back in 2010. Obama has completed many of his objectives, and has already decreed millions of acres as a preserve except for wind farms and solar panels.

More than a dozen pristine landscapes, wildlife habitats and scenic rivers in 11 Western states, some larger than Rhode Island and Delaware combined, are under consideration by the Obama administration to become America’s newest National Monuments — a decision the administration can make unilaterally without local input or congressional approval.

According to internal Department of Interior documents leaked to a Utah congressman and obtained exclusively by Fox News, the mostly public lands include Arizona deserts, California mountains, Montana prairies, New Mexico forests, Washington islands and the Great Basins of Nevada and Colorado — totaling more than 13 million acres.
