Junk science is no longer welcome at the Environmental Protection Agency. Administrator Scott Pruitt has declared war on what he calls “secret science” – the process whereby EPA regulators have been able to craft rules using non-publicly-available science data.
Pruitt told Daily Caller:
“We need to make sure their data and methodology are published as part of the record. Otherwise, it’s not transparent. It’s not objectively measured, and that’s important.”
This decision will correct a longstanding injustice at the EPA, perpetrated against the U.S. taxpayer. For years the EPA has been able to behave as a law unto itself, cavalierly passing regulations which restrict freedoms, hamper business and hold back the U.S. economy for reasons which have much more to do with left-leaning environmentalist politics than with objective science.
Say goodbye to Lower Manhattan, everybody! By midnight tonight, it will be gone forever—drowned by the melting icecaps of the disappearing Arctic.
Obviously this will be quite sad for people who live in New York.
But it will be a tremendous vindication for the expertise of James Hansen, the former director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) who saw this disaster coming as far back as 2008.
Greenland just broke the record for the coldest July day ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere at -33C.
But as Tony Heller notes, what’s even more interesting than the temperature record is the way the climate alarmists have tried to spin it.
In fact they lie. Almost all Greenland’s surface is gaining ice.
In fact, says Heller, Greenland has gained a near record amount of ice this year, and the ice is melting very slowly.
