1:04 PM (6 hours ago)White House Science Czar Orders No Political Interference in Global Warming Shamfrom Michelle Malkin by Doug Powers**Written by Doug Powers
People like the US De-Developer in Chief John Holdren certainly don’t seem to mind “political interference” when that interference is helping promote their cause and fleece taxpayers, but when the tables turn and some skeptics enter the scene, all of a sudden science is off limits to politics:
John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, issued a memorandum Friday to the heads of all federal departments and agencies calling for “a clear prohibition on political interference in scientific processes and expanded assurances of transparency.”
The memorandum comes as the science upon which key administration decisions are made on issues like climate change is being challenged by many Republicans in Congress. As the next Congress approaches, key members of the new House Republican majority have said they plan to challenge the Environmental Protection Agency’s efforts to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.
I’m sure the timing of the Wizard’s sudden attempt to kick Toto away from the curtain is completely unrelated to man-made global warming skeptic Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner being named vice chairman of the House Science Committee last week.
Look no further than last month at the administration’s bogus “scientific” rationale behind the Gulf drilling ban for evidence that “government science” should never be handed an accountability waiver.
All Holdren wants is for select “scientists” to have say over almost every aspect of our lives and unfettered access to our money all while we’re completely powerless to do anything about it. Why drag politics into it?
