If this were to actually happen, the backlash probably ought to be thoroughly devastating…
Warmist scientists including UN IPCC Lead Author Kevin Trenberth to Obama: ‘We appreciate that you are making aggressive and imaginative use of the limited tools available to you in the face of a recalcitrant Congress. One additional tool – recently proposed by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse – is a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) investigation of corporations and other organizations that have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, as a means to forestall America’s response to climate change. We strongly endorse Senator Whitehouse’s call for a RICO investigation.’
Via Politico: ‘Twenty climate scientists called for RICO investigation in a letter to Obama and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The scientists argue that the systemic efforts to prevent the public from understanding climate change resembles the investigation undertaken against tobacco. They draw inspiration from Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse who said on the Senate floor that there might be a similar conspiracy here, and a civil trial could provide the tools of discovery needed to find out.’
Thankfully, the odds of something like a RICO investigation into people who haven’t swallowed the Global Warming Kool-Aid actually occurring are miniscule. Even a leftist ideologue like Loretta Lynch, who rather than investigate Planned Parenthood after the Center for Medical Progress videos began making their debut on the internet suggested she would be looking into the whistleblowers, would be hard-pressed to take such an extreme action.
But it’s relatively obvious that when one side of an argument seeks to imprison the other side for disagreeing, it’s not a particularly good sign that the imprisoning side thinks they’re winning. If anything, the “climate change” crowd is telegraphing fairly clearly that they don’t think things are going well and are panicking.
Jackboots and truncheons are not scientific tools.
