Olympia needs to find a new writer - one less prone to over repetition of a phrase would be nice.

The phrase "climate change denier" and it's variants is meant to link climate change policy skeptics with holocaust deniers. That is why it is repeated so much. Nice, huh? Before this, it was "flat earthers." Really.
[quote]Dear Senator Snowe,
I read with interest your recent letter to the Wall Street Journal and am wondering if you can help me understand one point.
Do you view climate change denial as: a strategy, a campaign, a confederacy, a community, a front group, a myth, or a pseudo-science?
You are right Jon, a disgusting tactic. Probably "projecting".
That is a great essay...
I am thoroughly shocked that a Senator would openly send that type of letter to a corporation. She must feel completely insulated now that she has another six years.
Congratulations to the Maine Voter for once again re-electing a national embarassment.
Basically, she is saying to Exxon - you have to shut up and listen to us...you can't have your own opinion on climate change....you can't spend your money lobbying government ...
It is a threat letter for crying out loud! If you don't play ball, me and my liberal cronies in the Senate are going to make you pay.
Rush isn't exaggerating when he said this is Stalinist...or maybe even the Sopranos
Once again a Maine politician garners national recognition. :oops:
[quote="Mike Travers"]But we [b]must[/b] vote for her, or we could lose control of the Senate! :shock:[/quote]
Why that's right, of course.
It must be so; for that is precisely what the esteemed leadership of our very own GOP in Augusta keep telling us, and have for years now.
...Oh!; Wait!!!; :o
Around 75% of Maine Voters DID vote for her......
And... we DID lose control of the Senate! :shock:
How can that happen??!!
I dunno about you, but I think I need to fortify this RINO cool-aide with something a little stronger... :P
Conservative values won this election even on the Democrat side.
I read this at 7:00 AM this morning and I'm still shocked (at 6:30 PM) the Senator would stoop to this. I realize that she's a RINO but this is a new low, and far lower than I thought she was capable of going.
UncleJacque hit the nail on the head - it's all about the money. The simple fact is that there are a huge number of scientists/activists/etc. with a financial stake in spreading the doom & gloom of "climate change" and she damn well knows it.
I'm not proud of her RINO blood, but this "thug" tactic is embarrassing.
This is the sort of work Senator Snowe wishes to censor, especially the Lawson report referenced within- 18 pages well worth reading.
[url=http://www.americanthinker.com/2006/12/thatcher_economist_dehypes_cli.ht... kind of gags does Olympia prefer?[/url]
SCIENCE has spoken, discussion must end. Free speech is fine, but it ought not to be financed. Senators are the final judge of scientific truth and must not be challenged. A confederacy of interlocking groups---conspirators, by God--- are talking skeptically and questioning (YES, QUESTIONING!) the opinion of two US Senators. This can only be explained by malice. Questioning must be stopped. Skepticism must be stifled.
By the way, the Olympian showed up in Farmington in an SUV.
But some are more equal than others.
The Maine Media is portraying Snowe as a champion
Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller and Republican Senator Olympia Snowe write to ExxonMobil's new CEO urging him to stop supporting organizations, like the Competitive Enterprise Institute, who challenge the accepted wisdom on global warming .
If those who doubt the official position on climate change are harming America's international image why not declare them enemy combatants and subject them to indefinite detention?
Despite Olympia's fatwa, I will be on Kevin Crocker's show on WLOB this Saturday morning.
That's an old Free Republic practice, in case you hadn't noticed.
This one needs to stay on the front page just a little longer, methinks.
Headline coming soon.......EXXON-MOBILE RELOCATES ALL US OPERATIONS TO(name any other country whos lawmakers won't commit extorsion).
I just read the letter and if I was the CEO, I would tell her to punt......

Icome down strongly on one side of the "climate-change debate" -- yes, the climate is changing, but that's what the climate always does. Nobody really knows yet why this hyper-complicated physical system does what it does.
By itself, that doesn't mean I'm right or wrong about "global warming." But when people say "trust us" as they grab for my wallet, my standards of proof rise exponentially.
Check this out.....(hope its not too long a post!)
Senators Feel the Heat
Senator Harry Reid announced last week that one of his top priorities for the new Senate Democratic majority will be to clean up corruption on Capitol Hill.

Return of the Thugs
Totalitarianism Poised for a Renaissance

The letter from Senators Snowe/Rockefeller to Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson...doesnâ€™t bode well for the American economy. The Senators asked Exxon to terminate financial support of global warming skeptics. This is tyranny. One can only surmise the Senators would have destroyed Galileo for his heresies.... We would do well to recall...Thomas Jefferson: "I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."
Jon Reisman on WLOB this morning. Chime in
Country, I was expecting a call.... :roll:
Jon was very good. I was disappointed in the questions put to Jon, however. Kevin seemed distracted.

Challenging the prevailing orthodoxy on global climate change can be hazardous to your reputation. Just ask the handful of nationally known scientists who are skeptical about climate change. It may also provoke political wrath. Just ask ExxonMobil Corp.
[size=24]Mrs. Snowe, Who Wrote This Letter?[/size]
James Taranto has an editorial in today'Â€Â™s WSJ which links to the text of a letter from Senators Rockefeller and Snowe to Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil. The letter is remarkable for several reasons. First, it is obvious that neither of the two signees actually wrote the letter. It was written by a global warming activist,...

Gigot: Two US senators...caught trying to bully ExxonMobil into towing their line on global warming.
I've been in Washington a long time. I can't remember seeing a letter this blunt and...threatening.
Gigot: What are Snowe/Rockefeller trying to accomplish?
Strassel: [T]here's....ethical issues...here.
Gigot: [W]e did call the senators and ask for comment. [T]hey did not return our phone calls.
Henninger: [The enviro community has] turned global warming into essentially a fundamentalist religion.
The letter is a signal example of
1. the benefit of being represented in Congress by an "independent" "moderate."
2. the susceptibility of U. S. senators to the flattery of sycophants.
3. the mainstream media's failure to provide factual reporting about climate change.
4. the unbounded moral vanity of the Left.
5. all of the above.
The Global Warming Inquisition and the Suppression of 'Skeptic' Heresy

Imagine living in a world where no one is allowed to think independent thoughts or take independent actions. Only pre-approved human response would be acceptable. To break the rule and engage in forbidden thought would result in terrible retribution, perhaps leading literally to ones destruction.
Thatâ€™s the kind of world apparently desired by the global warming Chicken Littles. A case in point is a...letter to ExxonMobil... sent by ...Snowe...Rockefeller.
