They will do anything to stomp out dissenters.

Oklahoma Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe has shot back at a group of state attorneys general demanding documents from dozens of conservative groups, scientists and policy experts skeptical of global warming.
“Instead of honoring legitimate academic and scientific inquiry, the far-left has gone to extremes to silence those who disagree,” Inhofe told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “This is not about the science, it is about personal attacks and politics at its worst.”
Inhofe’s referring to investigations launched by the attorneys general of California, Massachusetts, New York and the U.S. Virgin Islands into ExxonMobil’s global warming activities over the past 20 years or so. Virgin Islands AG Claude Walker has subpoenaed Exxon and a libertarian think tank for records under the guise the oil giant was violating the territory’s anti-racketeering law.
But it wasn’t until Tuesday night that an un-redacted copy of the subpoena Walker sent Exxon was obtained by reporters. Walker’s subpoena asked for information from 88 mostly-right-leaning think tanks along with 54 scientists and policy experts skeptical of global warming.
