RI Senator: Use RICO Laws to Prosecute Global Warming Skeptics

Writing in the Washington Post, Sheldon Whitehouse, a Democratic Senator from Rhode Island, offered a curious suggestion for dealing with global warming skeptics

…Top men like Sheldon Whitehouse can make sure we don’t hear anything that we don’t need to hear about scientific research and legally punish anyone who publicly disagrees.

(As I write this, four of top ten Google results for “Solyndra” are about how the Department of Energy’s “scandalous” loan program that funded the notorious bankruptcy is actually turning a profit — which is not true and a dramatic example of how badly the media covers the issues surrounding green energy.)

Perhaps Sen. Whitehouse’s time would be better spent investigating the proven fraud that has been perpetrated by global warming alarmists who receive government grants.
