California introduces law to jail anyone who questions man-made climate change

A landmark California bill gaining steam would make it illegal to engage in climate-change dissent, clearing the way for lawsuits against fossil-fuel companies, think-tanks and others that have “deceived or misled the public on the risks of climate change.”

The first-of-its-kind legislation — Senate Bill 1161, or the California Climate Science Truth and Accountability Act of 2016 — is scheduled for floor action Thursday after clearing Senate committees in April and May.

The measure would allow state and local prosecutors to pursue claims against climate-change skepticism as a violation of the state’s Unfair Competition Law [UCL], as well as extend the four-year statute of limitations for such claims retroactively to Jan. 1, 2021.

“This bill explicitly authorizes district attorneys and the Attorney General to pursue UCL claims alleging that a business or organization has directly or indirectly engaged in unfair competition with respect to scientific evidence regarding the existence, extent, or current or future impacts of anthropogenic induced climate change,” says the state Senate Rules Committee’s floor analysis.

While the measure enjoys broad support by a bevy of environmental groups, the bill has also been described as an effort to ban free speech on climate change as well as chill donations to free-market groups.

Stephen Frank, editor of the conservative California Political Review, called the bill a “totalitarian statement by Democrats that the First Amendment is now dead.”

“Did you donate to the Pacific Legal Foundation? Do you support Americans for Prosperity? Are you a member of the California Republican Party, which has a platform approving of all forms of energy, including fossil fuel (oil)? Do you work for a gas station, an oil company, have your written a letter to the editor in favor of oil drilling?” asked Mr. Frank in a May 31 post.

“If so, you could find yourself with being charged in a court of law, thanks to SB 1161,” Mr. Frank said.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris belongs to a coalition of 17 state attorneys general that joined forces in March to pursue climate-change skeptics, starting with ExxonMobil.

The bill declares that there is no legitimate disagreement on the causes and extent of climate change, stating that, “There is broad scientific consensus that anthropogenic global warming is occurring and changing the world’s climate patterns, and that the primary cause is the emission of greenhouse gases from the production and combustion of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and natural gas.”

no this isnt an “onion” piece..its true..and its damn scary..

the obsession with everyone having to believe and no room for dissent is borderline paranoia..and it also underscores the importance of global warming to the globalists as a tool to bring in global governance..its got nothing to do with the environment..

“The measure would allow state and local prosecutors to pursue claims against climate-change skepticism as a violation of the state’s Unfair Competition Law [UCL], as well as extend the four-year statute of limitations for such claims retroactively to Jan. 1, 2021.”

perhaps the death penalty would suffice?

“While the measure enjoys broad support by a bevy of environmental groups, the bill has also been described as an effort to ban free speech on climate change as well as chill donations to free-market groups.”

uh huh..

  1. Jerry Brown, the Jesuit that just NEVER GOES AWAY!

  2. This is truly Orwellian – its too hot even when its cold – its hot because we say its hot .

  3. “I am applying the truth I was brought up on.” The truth of the Jesuits’ founder, Ignatius Loyola, whose principles, says Brown, have “worked for 400 years.”

  4. Won’t fly in the courts, they’d have a better chance by just bringing these companies up on common fraud charges.
    Freedom of speech covers lies, too…so anyone being accused of lying must be either hit with fraud charges (in the case of lying to steal by deception) or hit with libel or slander charges on a private basis, which is litigation, or “civil” law (if those slandered or libeled can show they’ve been harmed).
    Just because idiots pass a law does not mean that law will pass constitutional muster.

    • Next they will be suing God for the weather . Weather crime is serious stuff – much more important than killing babies .

      If a forecaster predicts calm for the next week he could be arrested but bombing civilians and waterboarding innocents is OK .

      America the evil
