Climates Change! The charge of”climate change denial” is complete nonsense

There are legitimate disagreements over climate science and the usefulness of climate models. Scientists on all sides of any climate issue are all working from the same observational data except when governments refuse to release data as in the case of ClimateGate. Then climate science is distorted.

The climate has changed, is changing, and will change in the future.  The media mantra that so and so is just a climate change denier is complete nonsense. In this case (here) it is the EPA administrator who is being attacked. Whatever EPA does one way or the other will have no meaningful effect on how climates change. These sorts of name calling attacks occur when the name calling accuser has little to no science to back their position. At this point it’s all about protecting the institution or agency’s government funding and little to do with science.

USEPA Administrator Pruitt’s first message to USEPA employees

Protective Action and Planning Guidance for Radiological Incidents



New EPA Administrator has a tough road ahead

Congratulations to Mr. Scott Pruitt, the new USEPA administrator. Be prepared to go back to the future. Back to the 1990’s when just about any common-sense thing EPA did resulted in a lawsuit from disgruntled environmental groups.

“The Senate voted Friday to confirm Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ushering in what are likely to be dramatic changes to the agency.” click here for WUWT

Elimination of USEPA Climate Web Page is No Significant Loss

“The EPA climate web page has no original data there, they rely on NOAA, NASA, etc. Mostly, it is just EPA opinion.” click here for more at WUWT

Time to Put USEPA Back on Track

“Millions of hard-working Americans rely on affordable energy to make ends meet. However, it’s no secret that the president’s so-called Clean Power Plan, the cornerstone of the Obama administration’s climate change policy, could cost up to $292 billion. The so-called Clean Power Plan would actually have no meaningful impact on our environment and only end up reducing global temperatures by three one-hundredths of a degree Celsius. This burdensome regulation would also only lower sea level rise by the thickness of three sheets of paper.” click here

Time for redirection of USEPA

In reality there’ s only so much a political appointee can do to bring change to a federal agency. After all, agency bureaucrats will still be there kicking and screaming to protect personal turf and over-reaching regulations. But one must start somewhere to bring some balance…..

““We are delighted with President-elect Trump’s selection of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  Mr. Pruitt has led the charge in recent years to confront head on the enormous federal regulatory overreach proposed by the EPA as epitomized by the Clean Power Plan and Waters of the U.S. rule.  ” click here
