Kudos to The Washington Times’ Valerie Richardson for her reporting on the global warming industry’s misdeeds (“Exxon threatened with ‘climate deceit’ lawsuit in latest effort to penalize dissent,” Web, May 17). As for those 17 Democratic attorneys general trying to bring suit against Exxon Mobil and applying Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statues, it seems to me the tables could quite easily be turned.

If there were ever a group that deserved to be indicted and convicted using RICO statutes, it is the global warming cohort. The fraud and data manipulation going on there would be a lot easier to prove than any nefarious “cover-up” committed by Exxon Mobil or the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

It should be easy enough to find 17 Republican state attorneys general willing to recognize this opportunity and follow through. CEI and two states have hit back. Perhaps they should now repel the enemy’s opening salvo with a full-frontal assault against the global warming industry and its war on fossil fuels and affordable American energy.
