As predicted, the House of Representatives recently passed legislation that would regulate greenhouse gas emissions and guarantee Americans a polar bear in every pot, so long as that pot is made from 75% post-consumer granola. Now the measure heads to the Senate, where at least one man has the carbon-based stones to ask: What, exactly, is the Environmental Protection Agency trying to hide?
A top Republican senator has ordered an investigation into the Environmental Protection Agency's alleged suppression of a report that questioned the science behind global warming.
"[Report author Alan Carlin] came out with the truth. They don't want the truth at the EPA," Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla, a global warming skeptic, told FOX News, saying he's ordered an investigation. "We're going to expose it."
Yes! Transparency, that's what we need in these matters; just think how much time we've wasted on "evolution" because people keep planting those hoax fossils underground. Anyway, kudos to Jim Inhofe for standing up to the EPA on behalf of skilled scientist Alan Carlin…
An EPA official told FOXNews.com on Monday that Carlin, who is an economist — not a scientist — included "no original research" in his report. The official said that Carlin "has not been muzzled in the agency at all," but stressed that his report was entirely "unsolicited."
"It was something that he did on his own," the official said. "Though he was not qualified, his manager indulged him and allowed him on agency time to draft up … a set of comments."
Oh, what, now you have to be a "scientist" to write policy reports about science? Who gets to decide what makes a person a "scientist," anyway? That's right, other "scientists." See how this sham works?
And now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go draft up a report disproving calculus. I just have a hunch, is all, and I hated that crap in school.
