Too bad the administration isn’t this passionate about fighting terror.
Don’t let it be said the Obama Administration doesn’t have it’s priorities in perfect progressive order.
And near the top of those priorities are dealing with “climate change deniers”.
Today’s forecast related to climate change insanity is grim, indeed. United State Attorney General Loretta Lynch admitted her team has discussed the option of filing a lawsuit against the fossil fuel industry based on its handling of climate data gathered in the course of pursing business.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch has considered taking legal action against climate change deniers.
The United States’ top lawyer told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that the Justice Department has ‘discussed’ the possibility of a civil lawsuit against the fossil fuel industry.
She said any information her office has received has been sent to the FBI in a bid to build a case.
The silver lining? That Lynch was straight-up honest about the effort, instead of denying the obvious and obfuscating the truth.
The dark side? That she isn’t embarrassed by her targeting of Americans who have different and reasonable theories based on real data that counter the politically correct piffle popular with the “consensus” believers.
Lynch’s action is the next step in the progressive-led hysteria likening the fossil fuel industry and its assertions about temperature data to the tobacco industry, which blatantly suppressed real evidence about actual health effects. I covered this topic last October, when two California congressmen asserted that ExxonMobile officals “hid” the knowledge that carbon dioxide causes climate change for over 27 years and used that data to try and get a competitive edge.
In fact, our state’s Attorney General is going forward with a formal investigation, which follows a similar probe by New York.
California Attorney General Kamala Harris has opened an investigation into whether Exxon Mobil Corp. concealed its knowledge about climate change from the public and investors, two months after a similar probe was launched by the New York attorney general.
Harris’ probe will investigate whether Exxon violated securities and environmental laws by concealing knowledge from investors of the risk climate change posed to the company, according to media reports. The move follows several reports that the company worked to cast doubt on climate change science even though Exxon scientists were aware of the role of fossil fuels in climate change as early as the 1970s.
The investigation will likely be similar to a probe launched in November by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who issued a subpoena ordering the energy giant to turn over documents related to its climate change knowledge. Schneiderman released a statement on Wednesday supporting Harris’ action.
Fortunately, there are many thoughtful and experienced scientists who will counter the climate-change drivel during the proceedings. However, I suspect that these depositions will not make elite media reports.
Meanwhile, the President is wrapping up the final year of his
reign administration about the same way as he began it: With an apology tour. This time, our nation is guilty of causing global warming.
The U.S. and Canada are responsible to a great degree for causing the Earth’s temperature to rise and spurring climate change, President Obama said Thursday.
“In some ways, as wealthier countries, we can probably adapt and manage better,” Obama said in a joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “On the other hand, we’re also those responsible for a lot of the carbon pollution that is causing climate change.”
If Obama, Lynch and Harris had pursued ISIS terrorists with this much vigor, then perhaps American’s wouldn’t have died during attacks in the homeland and Catholics wouldn’t be petitioning to have the slaughter of Middle Eastern Christians labeled as genocide.
