Democrats launch McCarthyist witchhunt against researchers questioning climate change agenda

As their climate change-global warming narrative begins to fall apart under the withering scrutiny of hard data and facts, desperate liberal Democrats are turning to bullying tactics reminiscent of a 1950s-era Republican senator they all despise to force universal acceptance.

As reported by, U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona, the top Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee, is among a small group of Democrats who are demanding that colleges and universities turn over grants, congressional testimony and other activities from a group of professors and scientists who have testified at congressional climate hearings.

The group, adds The College Fix, is being targeted because they don’t buy into the argument that climate change and global warming is occurring as a result of man-made activities.

One of the scientists being targeted by Grijalva is Pepperdine University Prof. Steven Hayward. On the Power Line blog he wrote of his targeting:

Let’s start by axing (sic) a simple question: If I say “two plus two equals four,” does the truth of that proposition depend on whether I’ve received a grant from the Charles G. Koch Foundation? Apparently it does for Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), the ranking member of the House Committee on Natural Resources.

I’ve received – and am receiving – no grants, honoraria, consulting fees, good karma baubles, or even Christmas cards from any fossil fuel interest, though I’d be proud and open about it if I did. And I didn’t consult anyone for the content of my congressional testimony over the years, though so what if I had? Is the good congressman really telling us that he is incapable of assessing factual claims and judgments about the wisdom of policy on the merits alone? That doesn’t speak well of his probity.
