Have been there and had it happen to me both at state and federal level. When the facts don't fit the government agenda researchers are not asked why it doesn't fit but to shut up. Much of the reason is that different facts may threaten funding or established procedures. An example, We got sent a huge pressure protected O2 probe instead of a small hand held probe. When I asked my boss how to send it back and get it replaced he said no, that will take two years and a book of paperwork. I was instructed to take it out in the field and bash it up with a sledge then run over it with my truck, then to photograph it and fill out a breakdown report. We got a new one in ten days.

So you caved to instructions to perform an illegal act, that being destruction of a government property. Self admitted crimes are sill crimes.

Something’s amiss at the Department of Interior. Eight government scientists were recently fired or reassigned after voicing concerns to their superiors about faulty environmental science used for policy decisions. 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...
