A Republican House chairman issued subpoenas Wednesday to two Democratic state attorneys general — including New York’s Eric Schneiderman — seeking records about their investigation into whether ExxonMobil misled investors about man-made climate change.

Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, chairman of the House Science Committee, is pursuing records from Schneiderman and Massachusetts AG Maura Healey. Smith insisted he acted only after they refused for months to give the panel information lawmakers had requested on the ExxonMobil case.

Smith, who is among a large group of congressional Republicans who reject mainstream climate science :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:, said Schneiderman and Healey were pursuing “a political agenda” on behalf of environmental groups fighting ExxonMobil over climate change.

The groups accuse ExxonMobil of hiding early findings showing a link between global warming and the burning of fossil fuels, such as oil and gas. ExxonMobil denies that.

Smith and other Republicans portrayed the issue as a matter of free speech, charging Schneiderman, Healey and their allies were trying to intimidate scientists and others who question climate change.

“The actions by the attorneys general amount to a form of extortion,” Smith claimed. :D

The AGs and their allies want an out-of-court settlement with ExxonMobil “so they can obtain funds for their own purposes,” said Smith, whose 2014 campaign alone got $10,000 from ExxonMobil.

Sarandon, Glover, Woodley to Headline Climate-Conscious Movie Night in Germantown
By Brian X. McCrone

Some of Hollywood's libtarded movie stars are descending on Philly for the Democratic National Convention and the first event of the weeklong gathering is happening at a park in Germantown.

Susan Sarandon, Danny Glover and Shailene Woodley are among the headliners for a movie night and concert at Vernon Park, on Germantown Avenue near West Chelten Avenue, starting 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

A group called NextGen Climate, which advocates on environmental issues, organized the event called "The Climate Revolution is Up to Us." :rolleyes:

Another host is Josh Fox, known well in Pennsylvania political circles for his lying anti-fracking crockumentary, "Gasland." It's most remembered for Pennsylvania homeowners who lit their faucet water on fire.

"This rally, the first of a series of rallies across the country, will address the intersectionality of climate, environmental, racial and economic justice issues," NextGen Climate said in a statement. "A dream team of organizers, celebutards, musicians, and environmental, economic and racial justice advocates, including Susan Sarandon​, Shailene Woodley,​Ben Jealous, Josh Fox, Nomiki Konst,​ Kendrick Sampson ​are collaborating to inspire educate and mobilize the progressive movement towards greater climate action and political participation."
