ExxonMobil Fights the Abusive Behavior of Democrat Attorney Generals’ Climate Inquisition

Hans von Spakovsky of The Daily Signal reveals how our government is attempting to criminalize scientific dissent and punish anyone who dares question the validity of alleged climate change:

ExxonMobil is fighting back against New York’s Democrat attorney general who is demanding decades-worth of documents about the company’s position on global warming and climate change.

On Oct. 17, ExxonMobil asked a federal judge in Texas, Ed Kinkeade, to stop the abusive behavior of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman by tossing out the subpoena that Schneiderman served on Exxon as part of its investigation of the company for supposedly lying to the public about catastrophic, man-induced climate change.

This is part of the effort of state AGs like Schneiderman to criminalize scientific dissent and punish heretics who question the validity of this unproven theory.

Exxon had already filed a lawsuit in federal court to stop a similar investigation being waged by Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, also a Democrat.  Exxon’s Oct. 17 motion asked the same federal court to allow it to amend its original complaint to add Schneiderman to its lawsuit.
