Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) wants the Justice Dept. to prosecute everyone who disagrees with him on ‘climate change.’

Which is much less draconian than last year’s demand, by an assistant professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology, that all “climate change deniers’ should be incarcerated.

Looks like Tammy’s 2001 book, The New Thought Police, is still remarkably relevant.

Via Daily Caller:

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse is not a fan of anyone who disagrees with him about man-made global warming. And at an event hosted by environmentalists, he made it clear just how much he doesn’t like skeptics.

“But, this vast denial apparatus that propagates the false doubt, that props up the phony science, that gets these yahoos who can’t survive … peer-reviewed scrutiny onto Fox News, onto the cable shows, saying that their scientists, they create an artificial conflict about this and that’s why I think there’s doubt,” the Rhode Island Democrat told attendees at a League of Conservation Voters event in last month….

“A lot of people haven’t seen through the scam that’s being perpetrated,” Whitehouse said. “So that’s one of the reasons I hope that we get another lawsuit out of the Department of Justice, like the one they brought against the tobacco industry that showed that the whole fraudulent scam was a racketeering enterprise, held them accountable for it.”

    I think a DOJ lawsuit against “Dip S****.” Might have a better chance of passing.

    If a lawsuit is brought by DOJ, then those sued can request discovery of all emails that gov’t and its consultants have on climate change. While Leftist gov’t will only produce some info. and will ‘lose’ the rest, it won’t care as long as those sued are spending money defending themselves. Similar to what Mark Steyn (and NRO and others?) are going through with the Michael Mann, you slandered me by pointing out that my hockey stick graph is no longer accepted, lawsuit. On second thought, that’s probably exactly why Whitehouse is advocating lawsuit action. Thought Police love having tax payers paying for the gov’t lawyers. We need lawsuit reform to help mitigate the Left’s legal abuses to impoverish dissent.

    Purpose of the lawsuit is to silence. We must fight this tyranny.
