In recent months, some global warming advocates, who’ve invested heavily in their agendas, have gone to new extremes demanding that skeptics be thrown in jail. When extremists of any kind stick their necks out too far, however, they themselves become noticed.
Such is the case with one Professor Jagadish Shukla, George Mason University, who is now facing scrutiny from member of Congress, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) for misuse of government funds, specifically a $4.2 million grant.
According to their story last month, Breitbart reported that “twenty alarmist scientists – led by Shukla – wrote a letter to President Obama urging him to use RICO laws to crush climate skeptics.”
Such a call to crush dissent when there is admittedly no warming is especially troublesome, but when the government gets ripped off, things can get real interesting. Former Virginia State Climatologist Pat Michaels called the Shukla circus “the largest science scandal in US history.”
