WOW! The 1850s?! Such a long time ago...of course, that timeline only accounts for 1% of man kind's 'civilized' existence, and 0.000003% of the Earth's history, but - of course - scientists know better. Never mind the fact that paleoclimatology suggests that almost all of Earth's history has been, on average, hotter, and had a higher CO2 content than it does now...but who cares - the last 163 years trumps everything. /sarc can't see the forest for the trees.

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...
