Let's see the Feds have about 700 million acres. Why don't we sell that to start the paydown of the debt with all that land. At a conservative $3500 an acre that would pay off about $2.5 Trillion. Then of course since we didn't own the land anymore we could get rid of all the bureaucratic infrastructure (read that govt employees) that manages all that ground.

Which begs the question, “Are some government agencies manipulating science to advance political agendas?”

Fictional book authors operate in a convenient world, unconstrained by facts and experiences of the real world. The antithesis of works of fiction are scientific findings solely based on provable facts and experience. For agenda-driven environmental science, facts can sometime prove inconvenient. It’s far easier to advance an agenda with agreeable science, even if that means creating science...
