I couldn't have said it better myself

Back in March, a bunch of state attorneys general -- all Democrats, of course -- announced that they were going to start prosecuting "climate change deniers:"
A coalition of Democratic attorneys general in 16 states announced Tuesday an unprecedented campaign to pursue companies that challenge the catastrophic climate change narrative, raising concerns over free speech and the use of state authority to punish political foes.
Apparently, it never occurred to them that this might be just a tad beyond the limits imposed by the Constitution, but hey, they're Democrats, which means the Constitution is a set of suggestions, not the law of the land or anything like that. They ignore others who suggested they might be mistaken, such as here and here.  Oh, no, they were on a mission.

Well, not everybody agrees with their mission, apparently. Alex Epstein, a conservative pundit (among other things), was subpoenaed by the Massachusetts attorney general over his disagreement with the theory of man-made global warming. I don't think the AG's office got the response they were hoping for:

FollowAlex Epstein @AlexEpstein

If only more people had the guts to fight back against government overreach, perhaps we wouldn't be in this situation where government views us as subjects, not citizens. The consent of the governed apparently stopped mattering a long time ago.
