    Fresh off the press: http://www.iges.org/letter/LetterPresidentAG.pdf

    They are asking a RICO prosecution (or persecution, more accurately) "of corporations and other organizations that have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change."

    History repeating itself.

    You may no longer disagree with "the narrative"

    Everyone has the freedom to agree with us and say stuff we approve of. Otherwise it's off to jail with you!

    You can say whatever you want, as long as we approve it.

    Some people can not live and work comfortably without being in a mob.

    I call it the canine syndrome.

    All dogs are juvenile wolfs. They never reach adulthood.

    Nice list of names Dannyf. I don't think the Justice department will go after them for their part in the fraud, but it would be a nice place to start.

    Food for thought!
    Whether 'tis nobler in the minds of men to criminalize free speech by the corporations that basically own Congress...

    Actually the 'Justice Department's' title was misspelled and no one caught it in time.

    Its supposed to be the 'Just Us Department' as in it's just us in this department who's opinions and rules matter. :oops:

    How 'bout just let it go? Those who are offended can just ignore it. Can't be worse than automotive topics.

    Can't, it's my job. I took willingly when offered, the pay sucks, the benefits can be iffy, but I love the core mission of this site. So I persevere to keep it on track as best I can. What the hey, even on my birthday it is something to do.

    I think this letter reflects some people's mentality that if you don't agree with me, you are evil. They see nothing wrong in using governmental means to squash any dissenting views that they don't approve of.

    BTW, the lead signatory, Jagadish Shukla has gotten tens of millions from the tax payers to fund a non-profit that also employs himself, his wife and his daughter.

    So his view on this is clearly unbiased, there is no conflict of interests and he is definitely not trying to mis-lead the public.
