WND reports on the subpoena that CEI receieved from Attorney General Claude Walker and discusses Sam Kazman's response.

CEI’s General Counsel Sam Kazman responded: “This is the latest effort in an intimidation campaign to criminalize speech and research on the climate debate.

If Walker and his allies succeed, the real victims will be all Americans, whose access to affordable energy will be hit by one costly regulation after another, while scientific and policy debates are wiped out one subpoena at a time.”
