It is illegal to shout, "Fire, Fire" in a crowed theater if there is no fire. It should also be illegal to shout, "There is No Fire, There is No Fire" if there IS a fire in a crowded theater, and others are warning, “There is a Fire”. If you pay to enlist others into this conspiracy to shout out "There is no Fire, There is no Fire" and drown out or suppress the observations of those who see the fire, in a conspiracy to suppress the truth which results in great damage and death it is a criminal act and the conspirators are guilty of murder.

People are dying of starvation in drought stricken areas affected by rapid climate change. Climate change deniers fall into the second class described above claiming there is no fire while California is burning up and the world is experiencing record heat. They are shouting down observed, recorded scientific facts and observations.  Their actions are a clear and present danger to the people and to the republic and are fraudulent, conspiratorial, and backed by the fossil fuel industry racketeering against the common good.

The fossil fuel industry wants to exploit $400 trillion worth of resources and has suppressed the development of renewable energy by funding opposition to renewable energy in a multitude of formats. This includes funding climate change denial propaganda as part of their effort to keep their oil, coal, natural gas and nuclear subsidies and tax credits to prevent competition and funding legislators to eliminate renewable energy buy back credits. Let’s just call it what it is. It’s racketeering and the fossil fuel industry and their supporters are engaging in antitrust violations.

The environmental movement needs to unite and instigate anti trust lawsuits and criminal racketeering charges against the Koch Brothers, Exxon-Mobil, Peabody Coal, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh and the like, and begin the 21st century version of the Scopes Monkey trial for all the people and for a healthy and safe planet.

If a powerful company uses market muscle to stifle competition, that is an antitrust violation. Living and Dying in Google’s World, New York Times, 12/4/12
