Global Warming Inquisition Targets Conservative Think Tanks

Climate crime is thought crime. That’s why the cabal of Democrat AGs who have been pushing for the criminalization of global warming skepticism are targeting conservative think tanks:

The attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands is targeting dozens of conservative and libertarian organizations in a racketeering lawsuit against climate change skeptics that has been widely described as an effort to silence political opponents.

In a subpoena issued in March, the office of USVI attorney general Claude Walker demanded from Exxon Mobil copies of communications between the oil company and 90 different political and policy organizations “and any other organizations engaged in research or advocacy concerning Climate Change or policies.”

The subpoena was part of a national, coordinated legal campaign by state attorneys general and left-wing advocacy groups to use the legal system against companies and organizations that disagree with and advocate against Democratic policies to address global climate change. …

Those organizations include some of the nation’s preeminent conservative and libertarian nonprofit groups. The AG is requesting Exxon Mobil communications with the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute, the Federalist Society, the Hoover Institution, the Reason Foundation, and the Mercatus Institute, among other groups.

This goes far beyond the AG of the Virgin Islands:

Walker’s subpoena is part of a coordinated effort by Democratic attorneys general spearheaded by New York’s Eric Schneiderman and undertaken in consultation and cooperation with leading environmental advocacy groups.

Their objective: the criminalization of dissident thought.

Walker’s subpoena is itself of dubious legality, according to some legal experts.

“What they’re doing looks like a concerted scheme to restrict the First Amendment free speech rights of people they don’t agree with,” itself a potential violation of federal law, wrote University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds.

Again we see that the global warming hoax isn’t about controlling the weather. It is about controlling us.
