California schemin’: Bill that would have criminalized climate change skepticism dies (for now)

Well, at least now we know why Obama’s been commuting the sentences of so many convicted felons — they’re trying to open up cell space for the heretics who have committed the crime of getting in the way of the climate change alarmist agenda.

Unfortunately though for progressives who made California Senate Bill 1161 a first-round draft pick in their fantasy totalitarian league team, there is a bit of a setback:

A landmark bill allowing for the prosecution of climate change dissent effectively died Thursday after the California Senate failed to take it up before the deadline.

Senate Bill 1161, or the California Climate Science Truth and Accountability Act of 2016, would have authorized prosecutors to sue fossil fuel companies, think tanks and others that have “deceived or misled the public on the risks of climate change.”
[…]
The measure was introduced amid a national push by Democrats and activist groups to use the legal system to prosecute climate change “fraud,” prompting a backlash from skeptics who have denounced the campaign as an assault on free speech.

The science is so “settled” that they’re looking to throw doubters in jail, which is like a restaurant owner proving to health inspectors his place is botulism-free by killing customers who look a little peaked.

They’ll be back though:

The bill is considered dead because the house-of-origin deadline is midnight Friday and the state Senate is not scheduled to meet again before that. Later this year, however, the same language could be reintroduced under a waiver of the rules or inserted into another bill as part of the gut-and-amend process.

They won’t rest until this is an actual prison inmate conversation:

“What are you in for?”

“Armed robbery and grand theft auto. You?”

“Called Bill Nye a disingenuous a**hole.”
