Is Obama Trying to Silence the Truth About Global Warming?
Michael Jackson media hysteria may be providing a perfect subterfuge for the White House to ram un-necessary 'green' legislation through Congress
AUTO CENTRAL - June 30, 2009: Reports surfaced last week that the Obama Administration is feverishly trying to suppress information critical to the authenticity of global warming theories. Certainly, the major news networks, such as CNN (no surprise here), have become nothing short of wall-to-wall Michael Jackson infomercial outlets since the singer’s death. How convenient to avoid the real truth about a really important subject!
At the center of this new controversy is a report from CBS News* that states, “Alan Carlin, the primary author of the 98-page EPA report**, told CBSNews.com in a telephone interview on Friday that his boss, (Al) McGartland, was being pressured himself. "It was his view that he either lost his job or he got me working on something else," Carlin said. "That was obviously coming from higher levels."
CBS News further said, “E-mail messages released this week show that Carlin was ordered not to "have any direct communication" with anyone outside his small group at EPA on the topic of climate change, and was informed that his report would not be shared with the agency group working on the topic.”
"I was told for probably the first time in I don't know how many years exactly what I was to work on," said Carlin, a 38-year veteran of the EPA. "And it was not to work on climate change." One e-mail orders him to update a grants database instead.”
The CBS story says that “Carlin has an undergraduate degree in physics from CalTech and a PhD in economics from MIT. His website lists papers about the environment and public policy dating back to 1964, spanning topics from pollution control to environmentally-responsible energy pricing. “
“After reviewing the scientific literature that the EPA is relying on, Carlin said, he concluded that it was at least three years out of date and did not reflect the latest research. "My personal view is that there is not currently any reason to regulate (carbon dioxide)," he said. "There may be in the future. But global temperatures are roughly where they were in the mid-20th century. They're not going up, and if anything they're going down."
“Carlin's report listed a number of recent developments he said the EPA did not consider, including that global temperatures have declined for 11 years; that new research predicts Atlantic hurricanes will be unaffected; that there's "little evidence" that Greenland is shedding ice at expected levels; and that solar radiation has the largest single effect on the earth's temperature.”
“If there is a need for the government to lower planetary temperatures, Carlin believes, other mechanisms would be cheaper and more effective than regulation of carbon dioxide. One paper he wrote says managing sea level rise or reducing solar radiation reaching the earth would be more cost-effective alternatives.”
EDITOR'S NOTE: There’s a lot of crap coming out of Washington these days.
Let’s not let ourselves be side-tracked by the dubious exploits of a
song-and-dance man. I, for one, couldn’t care less who really
fathered his children.
