Government by Intimidation

Sens. Jay Rockefeller and Olympia Snowe 
try to bully Exxon


5 Dec 06 - "Washington has no shortage of bullies," said the Wall Street Journal in an editorial. 
"But even we can't quite believe an October 27 letter that Sens. Jay Rockefeller and Olympia Snowe 
sent to ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson. Its message: Start toeing the senators' line on climate change, 
or else."

"The letter's essential point, the newspaper said, "is that the two senators believe global warming is 
a fact, and therefore all debate about the issue must stop and ExxonMobil should 'end its dangerous 
support of the [global warming] "deniers." ' Not only that, the company 'should repudiate its climate 
change denial campaign and make public its funding history.'

"This is amazing stuff. ("Scary" might be a better word. Or how about "dangerous?") On the 
one hand, the senators say that everyone agrees on the facts and consequences of climate change. 
But at the same time they are so afraid of debate that they want Exxon to stop financing a doughty 
band of dissenters who can barely get their name in the paper."
