The Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) platform drafting committee – chaired by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Maryland Representative Elijah Cummings – have added into their Party’s platform a provision to have the Department of Justice prosecute “climate deniers” in the energy industry for fraud and for misleading their consumers.
The new provision that deals with climate deniers was adopted by unanimous consent under the heading “Climate Change and Clean Energy”:
Moving beyond the “all of the above” energy approach in the 2012 platform, the 2016 platform draft re-frames the urgency of climate change as a central challenge of our time, already impacting American communities and calling for generating 50 percent clean electricity within the next ten years. The Committee unanimously adopted a joint proposal from Sanders and Clinton representatives to commit to making America run entirely on clean energy by mid-century, and supporting the ambitious goals put forward by President Obama and the Paris climate agreement. Another joint proposal calling on the Department of Justice to investigate alleged corporate fraud on the part of fossil fuel companies who have reportedly misled shareholders and the public on the scientific reality of climate change was also adopted by unanimous consent.
Interestingly, those in the so-called “green” energy industry have misled their investors and consumers on the “scientific reality of climate change.” “Clean” energy corporations have as much a vested interest in blowing global warming way out of proportion as the fossil fuel industry allegedly has in downplaying it.

Why is it that it’s okay to lie about global warming as long as what’s being predicted is a widely exaggerated apocalyptic scenario, the only cure for which is to bankrupt the fossil fuel industry and for everyone to become “green” energy consumers by law?
Never mind the fact that none of their dire prophecies have come true, and that their models and figures are skewed to yield a desired result. It’s all a propaganda contest to get as many people to fall for the manmade climate change/global warming myth in order for the green industry to “legally” bankrupt their competitors and hopefully jail them for “fraud.”
