Watch: Sen. Whitehouse: I hope Dept of Justice sues ‘vast climate denial apparatus’

Speaking to the League of Conservation Voters, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse expresses his want for the US Department of Justice to sue those that are skeptical of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming.
SENATOR SHELDON WHITEHOUSE: “But, this vast denial apparatus that propagates the false doubt, that props up the phony science, that gets these yahoos who can’t survive peer-reveed [sic], peer-reviewed scrutiny onto Fox News, onto the cable shows, saying that their scientists, they create an artificial conflict about this and that’s why I think there’s doubt.  A lot of people haven’t seen through the scam that’s being perpetrated. So that’s one of the reasons I hope that we get another lawsuit out of the Department of Justice, like the one they brought against the tobacco industry that showed that that whole fraudulent scam was a racketeering enterprise, held them accountable for it.”

  1. Well come-on Sheldon, file your lawsuit. Discovery is going to be a riot. Show us the “proof” of AGW – proof, not assertions. There is a huge difference. Show us the “proof” that CO2 is the driver of climate change. Explain the failures of the climate computer models that have been operating for decades. Whitehouse, you are a disgrace and an empty suit.

  2. So are academics who conspired to manipulate climate data to support AGW claims, benefitting them financially, liable for prosecution under RICO? How about politicians and lobbyists who coordinate with them to obtain funding?

  3. I think it is a good idea, the AGW proponents will have to prove their case in open court and the sceptics will have a chance to make their scientific criticisms in the full glare of publicity, which has been largely denied them up to now, they will also be able to make a counter claim.

  4. I hope he gets his wish. There will finally be a venue where those like him will finally have to prove to a court of law that they aren’t just scamming the entire world. All those who have studied the REAL science of “climate change” know that it doesn’t exist. I really want to see one of the scammers try to prove that CO2 doesn’t follow temperatures. Maybe then the altering of temperature records by the likes of John Holdren will finally be brought into a court of law so he, and the rest of the scammers, can be sent to jail. I just have to wonder how much Whitehouse is getting out of this scam that he keeps pushing it so hard as to violate the 1st amendment rights of other Americans.
