There is a conspiracy afoot to shield Americans from the truth about climate change, however you may be surprised to learn who exactly is deceiving the public and committing the fraud. These perpetrators are utilizing propaganda, Hollywood and political elites, and the cover of institutional authority and resources to bulldoze radical changes on society. It is clear to them that all dissent must be stamped out.
Last year a group of 20 academics, led by George Mason Universitys Jagadish Shukla, wrote the President, the U.S. Attorney General, and the director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy to strongly endorse Senator Sheldon Whitehouses call to use the RICO statutes (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) to go after any dissenting voices opposing popular climate orthodoxy.
In an effort to shed light on these keepers of truth, the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) requested public records that might show how the "RICO-20" group used public funding to call for the investigation of those who disagreed with them on climate policy. George Mason University refused to comply. But last week CEI prevailed in its Virginia Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against GMU. This victory puts on notice those academics who have increasingly inserted themselves into politics, that they cannot use taxpayer-funded positions to go after those who disagree with them and expect to hide it, said Chris Horner, CEI fellow and co-plaintiff.
In a separate but possibly coordinated action to squash dissent, AGs United for Clean Power, a coalition of Democrat attorneys general in 15 states, the Virgin Islands, and the District of Columbia, and lead by former Vice President and climate multi-millionaire Al Gore, have pledged to work together to defend climate change progress made under President Obama and push the next President for even more aggressive action.

To the left there is mo such thing as free speech.
It seems no one wants to tolerate much dissent anymore
Didn’t Jagdish pledge Omega house back in the 60s?
Not sure about Omega house pledge.
Do you mean Omega House as in Animal House?
Surprised that it wasn't led by Al Gore.
You’re right, he tried to pledge.
Oh wait, that's tax payer money, yours and mine...
There are those who want “in” on the global wealth distribution gravy train.
Yes, he was in the special seating area with Flounder and the guy n the wheelchair. Like Blazing Saddles, Animal House would not be allowed to be made today.
...Dissent Must Be Silenced....
What a great headline. One of the major tenets of liberals is to silence the opposition. When and if that fails after attempting boycott, lawsuit, smears, or even physical mob assaults, then the next step is to totally destroy the opposition by lies, innuendo, government action, and every other means available.
Dissent on the Democrat ideals will not be tolerated. All consuming hatred takes over.
They will have to stamp me out behind my sights. What is “Climate change”? Define it so I can measure it. You failed with Global warming because the Earth is cooling. Teaching children “ climate change “ crap to children is child abuse unless you define it , DEFINE IT DAMMIT!
You said that much more diplomatically than I could have. Well done.
When W was president, the Left was very vocal and insulting. They often said: "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism."
In 2008, when Obama got elected, my very Liberal neighbor said to me: "Huh? What do you think about THAT! What do you say NOW??"
I said: "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism." I thought she was going to spit in my face, but she managed to walk away. She was shaking with fury, however.
No free speech for their enemies, that is.
“Last year a group of 20 academics, led by George Mason Universitys Jagadish Shukla, ...to go after any dissenting voices opposing popular climate orthodoxy.”
Sounds like a gang of 50 IQ Maoist apes. Come and get your banana (clips), monkey boys.
those academics who have increasingly inserted themselves into politics,
“George Mason Universitys Jagadish Shukla”
WHAT country is George Mason University located in?
Big Science will always defend climate change, so-called, the source of countless hundreds of millions of dollars in government “study grants” and other booty.
