Obama's EPA Puts Politics Ahead Of Science

Kimberly Strassel has a must read column at the WSJ on a man named Alan Carlin who works at the EPA and was silenced when trying to put out a report that recommended the science behind man-made global warming be revisited (given new peer-reviewed research that has cast doubt on the theory and the fact that temperature have been going down for 10 years which was not predicted by the computer climate models that most climate scientists were relying on).

One of the Democrats' favorite lines about the Bush EPA was that they were putting politics ahead of science. Well, emails have been uncovered from Carlin's superior telling him to drop it because, "The administrator and the administration have decided to move forward on [classifying carbon as an] endangerment, and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision. . . . I can only see one impact of your comments given where we are in the process, and that would be a very negative impact on our office."

In other words, the EPA has already decided to move forward on this, so do not bring up any science that will conflict with their already-made decision. The EPA administrator could be really unhappy with us about that.
