Inconvenient truths about global warming the Obama administration don't want us to read... Is this another fine example of the [lack in] Transparency?
The Competitive Enterprise Institute is today making public an internal study on climate science which was suppressed by the Environmental Protection Agency. Internal EPA email messages, released by CEI earlier in the week, indicate that the report was kept under wraps and its author silenced because of pressure to support the Administration’s agenda of regulating carbon dioxide.
The report finds that EPA, by adopting the United Nations’ 2007 “Fourth Assessment” report, is relying on outdated research and is ignoring major new developments. Those developments include a continued decline in global temperatures, a new consensus that future hurricanes will not be more frequent or intense, and new findings that water vapor will moderate, rather than exacerbate, temperature.

  • New data also indicate that ocean cycles are probably the most important single factor in explaining temperature fluctuations, though solar cycles may play a role as well, and that reliable satellite data undercut the likelihood of endangerment from greenhouse gases. All of this demonstrates EPA should independently analyze the science, rather than just adopt the conclusions of outside organizations.
    The released report is a draft version, prepared under EPA’s unusually short internal review schedule, and thus may contain inaccuracies which were corrected in the final report.
    “While we hoped that EPA would release the final report, we’re tired of waiting for this agency to become transparent, even though its Administrator has been talking transparency since she took office. So we are releasing a draft version of the report ourselves, today,” said CEI General Counsel Sam Kazman.

  • Politicians assume people want to be anonymous, not make waves. Politicians assume people are ignorant and don't want to learn what decisions are being made.

    Obama won this election on a larger base of 'zero liability voters'. Voters who either (1) Did not take the time to truly look at ALL sides of the coin of the hard hitting issues. He spoke eloquently and they bought into it. (2) Don't pay income taxes, earn EIC, and have not direct negative impact if taxes are raised (3) A combo of the above...

    I wish people would take the time to look at ALL sides before the rush to believe in Obama.

    Because he "WON", remember. Everything that happens in the next 4 years is under his administration. Good or bad, like it or not, it is HIS baby.

    You can be 100% safe betting all the junk in the trunk that HE personally had something to do with this. He is afterall promoting "green" in
