Free Speech and Aristocracy

This story I love. Lord Monckton, Viscount of Brenchley has taken Olympia Snowe (RINO-Maine) and Jay Rockefeller (Malefactor of Great Wealth-W.Va.) to task for attempting to muzzle an oil company's opposition to its own defenestration by the chicken little caucus of global warming. When a British Lord has to explain to American Senators why freedom of speech is necessary, and indeed, why a corporation ought to protect its shareholder's interests, something is horribly wrong.

Worst of all, as I understand the alarms and dire Apocalypse that will engulf us if we do not socialize our economy and otherwise kowtow to the greenies, two states that most benefit are Maine and West Virginia. The one will become livable for more than 4 months of the year and the other shall finally obtain ocean front property cruelly denied it by Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee.

As an aside the present Viscount's father wash quite the guy as well:

I am sure you would be equally approving of some French wacko popping off about our internal politics.

To actually address your point, I too am against the stance taken by the Senators. Free speech is for all, except for the excessively jihadist of course. The Senators are right to note the funding connection between Mobil/Exxon and the "skeptical scientists" (oops, editorial giveaway) but should leave off at pointing out the connection and the resulting possibility of bias in their "scientific conclusions" (sorry, those keep showing up on their own).

The father was indeed something; the son clearly did not fall far from the tree, or perhaps the tree actually fell on the son. Love the comment referencing a "gentle, seductive" Catholic priest.
