Update: Calif. Senate backs away from bill criminalizing climate change doubt

-

The California Senate won’t take up a bill that would make it illegal for businesses to not believe in climate change.

Senate Bill 1161 would turn not believing in climate change into an unfair business practice in California and would extend the statute of limitations on the charge. The bill has been criticized as being anti-free speech.

Democratic State Sen. James Monning took the bill off the Senate floor on Wednesday. The bill had passed both the state Senate’s environmental and judiciary committees and can be reconsidered at a later date.

State Sen. Ben Allen, a Democrat, introduced the bill after reading reports in the Los Angeles Times and Inside Climate News about Exxon Mobil’s alleged coverup of climate science dating to the 1970s.
