Don't Question the EPA

A couple months back, CBS News reported that "the Environmental Protection Agency may have suppressed an internal report that was skeptical of claims about global warming, including whether carbon dioxide must be strictly regulated by the federal government." 

CBS stated that an " EPA official, Al McGartland, said in an email message to a staff researcher on March 17: 'The administrator [Lisa Jackson] and the administration has decided to move forward... and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision.'"  The report's author, a 38 year employee of the EPA, was diverted to other work.

In other words, two weeks before the EPA submitted its pro-regulation recommendation to the White House, the EPA center director suppressed a 98-page report that warned against making hasty "decisions based on a scientific hypothesis that does not appear to explain most of the available data."

Well, now we get word that the EPA may shut down the office in which the internal report originated -- the National Center for Environmental Economics (NCEE).

It seems that if you stand in the way of the EPA and their overtly over-the-top global warming agenda that restricts your use of energy, you're going to pay the price.
