Liberal AG Spills the Beans On Government’s Plans for Global Warming Deniers

With each passing year, the body of proof for global warming takes bigger and bigger hits. Some regions continue to have some of the coldest weather on record, and objective truth-seekers keep working relentlessly to shred the so-called “proof” that liberals are using to push their climate agenda.

Evidence like the infamous hockey stick graph keep getting truth bombs dropped on them, and the public grows increasingly wary of the idea that man-made global warming even exists.

As you can imagine, that doesn’t make liberals very happy. In fact, they’d love nothing more than to shut up each and every climate change denier for good.

Well, now evidence is coming to light that suggests the federal government may be concocting plans to do just that.

The Blaze explains:

Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified Wednesday that the Justice Department has “discussed” taking civil legal action against the fossil fuel industry for “denying” the “threat of carbon emissions” when it comes to climate change.

During Lynch’s testimony at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said that he believes there are similarities between the tobacco industry denying scientific studies showing the dangers of using tobacco and companies within the fossil fuel industry denying studies allegedly showing the threat of carbon emissions.

He went on to point out that under President Bill Clinton, the Justice Department brought and won a civil case against the tobacco industry, while the Obama administration has “done nothing” so far with regard to the fossil fuel industry.

Whitehouse concluded his comments by posing a question to the country’s top law enforcement officer.

“My question to you is, other than civil forfeitures and matters attendant to a criminal case, are there other circumstances in which a civil matter under the authority of the Department of Justice has been referred to the FBI?” he asked.

“This matter has been discussed. We have received information about it and have referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action on,” Lynch answered. “I’m not aware of a civil referral at this time.”

I guess we’d better start being careful what we say about global warming, or the thought police will snatch us up and silence us.

Can you believe the audacity of the feds? Do you think they believed we’d never find this out?
