The irony this topic inspires is always so epic.
Here we have all these skeptics who claim to be fiercely anti-big-government, because politicians are filthy crooks who spend away tax money on frivolous items designed only to boost their own profile and the agendas of their corporate backers.
But when a Republican Congressman from Texas whose biggest campaign contributor is the Oil & Gas industry decides he wants to subpoena climate scientists for their private emails, because all the raw, open source data they already make freely available on the internet isn't good enough for some reason - not an ounce of skepticism emerges regarding his motives.
