Global warming v Exxon Mobil

Letter to the Editor by Dave Pickrell

Force fed science threaten energy companies

The States Attorney’s General mob is at it again
Why is Exxon Mobil in so much trouble? Why have 17 states filed suit against them for fraud in the way they did research on global warming? Have you seen how much Exxon Mobil is worth? There are reports that more energy companies may be targeted. Multi billions of dollars are at stake here. There is no shortage of greed or the desire to manipulate science to get what they want.
In the past, some state attorney’s general sued the tobacco companies for misleading the public on the danger of tobacco. What the AG mob didn’t tell you is this was done by a taxpayer grant of $1,119,000. Also 15 state’s Attorney’s Generals sued 5 fast food giants to ban smoking in their restaurants because of the reported danger of tobacco smoke because they got $150,000,000 to do it – also taxpayer money.
Taxpayer money to influence public policy, in case the government is interested it’s illegal! In both cases the government claimed its manufactured science was correct—-but who needs to do illegal acts to promote truth? The very people who enforce the laws of integrity on these matters break them at will, because no one reports the science of risk assessment has been in a state of anarchy for decades.
Even the government knows that the lifeblood of science is the debate of the legitimacy of the claim. What is so wrong with the facts speaking truth or falsehoods? If you manufacture truth you downplay God’s truth and replace it with political correct truth, the best money can buy. They feel God’s truth is not important because He never shows up to demand his way, ethics and integrity do the job for Him if the right people are there to enforce it. If not the dog with the biggest teeth or the ones with the fattest wallets win.
Mob rule is what we are dealing with here, and nothing less. Force fed science for the sake of a long, slow bleed of money to the benefit of trial lawyers and government is theft, and thieves belong in prison, not enforcing the laws of our land.
