New Bill Makes EPA 'Climate Change Research' Public. Leftists Lose Their Minds!
The House just passed something that has environmentalists sharpening their pitchforks again. Seems liberal pitchforks are always at the ready whenever opportunity strikes. It's one of the left's hidden talents, along with being sneaky when it comes to climate change "science" (see BUSTED: NOAA Lied About Climate Change to Manipulate World Leaders and Obama Manipulated Department of Energy to Push Climate Change...). Which is why Republicans pushed a bill to make that research public.
A bill approved Wednesday by the GOP-controlled House would require that data used to support new regulations to protect human health and the environment be released to the public.
Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, said "the days of 'trust me' science are over," adding that the House bill would restore confidence in the EPA's decision-making process. The bill was approved 228-194.
Seems like a good way to hold the EPA accountable. Aaaand here's the reaction from leftist windbags - predictable yet priceless...
CNN's Van Jones wrote President Trump "may have just signed a death warrant for our planet" in regards to recent executive actions against the EPA.
"Make no mistake, the Trump administration's rampage against the environment presents an existential threat to the entire planet," John Podesta, former campaign chairman of the failed Clinton campaign, wrote in the Washington Post on Wednesday.
As you can see, the left is simply pointing out the fact that we can't publicize research that involves the public. Because, of course, that would be a DEATH WARRANT FOR THE ENTIRE PLANET!
This is a cosmic cryfest if I've ever seen one, and I've seen feminist rallies. In person. If I might make a friendly suggestion to environmentalists; stop gassing it up with all those useless whine bubbles. The atmosphere thanks you.
The source of all this overreaction? It appears leftists are a tad insecure about their "consensus of scientists" climate research. For good reason...
According to [a] report, scientist and Wharton School Professor J. Scott Armstrong says that fewer than one percent of modern scientists use the scientific method. "We go through journals and rate how well they conform to the scientific method. I used to think that maybe 10 percent of papers in my field... were maybe useful. Now it looks like maybe one tenth of one percent follow the scientific method," Armstrong said. "People just don't do it."
Ah, so the majority of modern scientists aren't even sciencing right. That seems rather relevant, wouldn't you say? Yes, you would say. The only ones who disagree? Leftists, who claim it's big, Republican-backed corporations that manipulate science according to their whim and fancy. Not liberals themselves - the arbiters of all that is scientifically accurate and holy. Except not really, since the evidence shows environmentalists manipulate data regularly. Guilty conscience on aisle these guys. Or maybe they're not guys, but trans people. Or genderless aliens. The same nimrods who claim to love science, also say there are more than two genders. Yep.
Transparency. Shady "scientists" pushing political agendas don't dig it. You already know why...
