"Shut Up!" the EPA Explains

Here in the Czech Republic, President Vaclav Klaus is a critic of doomsday theories on climate change. Back home in the new Obama Administration raising questions about the cost and efficacy about its climate change policies gets a muzzle slammed over your mouth. Even for people whose job it is to look into this stuff.

Remember Jim Hansen? No, not the muppet maker. That's Henson.

Hansen, a NASA scientist and anti-global warming zealot, (he recently got himself arrested protesting a coal plant). He claimed the Bush Administration tried to silence him and the Chicken Little community squawked their little head off.

Kim Strassel reveals the hypocrisy of those who claim scientific freedom must trump ideology. Not in the Obama Administration.

Carlin is NOT a scientist. He works in the economics office. He's got a bachelor's degree in physics.

Hanson is far more credible.

Funny how you picked this "opinion" piece, over an actual news article.


Even funnier is how you skipped over commenting on Sarah Palin's latest boneheaded move to quit her job. Her rambling, incoherent speech highlighted her incompetence. Palin 2012!! What a joke the right wing has been. Sanford and now this.
I wonder if the GOP will even bother to field a candidate in 2012.

Anonymous, why would you argue that Carlin is not a scientist and then immediately after that say he has a bachelor's degree in physics? From CalTech no less. Just because he works in the economics office does not mean he he is incapable of using any of the knowledge he gained at school. There is no logic to your argument, just like how there is no logic in any of the global warming...I mean climate change...studies that I've read.
