    Strassel: The EPA Silences a Climate Skeptic - WSJ.com

    the Obama administration isn't going to let a little thing like constitutional law get in the way of passing his carbon tax now is he?


    what? the obama administration silencing someone who doesn't agree with them, who won't just swallow the party line, who wants to actually study the data and present conclusions? So much for science not taking a back seat to policy.

    And what about the transparency we were promised?

    certainly hope and change wasn't supposed to include intentional cover ups.

    Seems like science is taking a back seat to politics after all

    Truth takes a backseat to the greed of politics. Nothing new. No true "change". Screw "hope".

    The Idiots will be along shortly to do just what you said , attack anyone that dares disagree with them. No facts, no science just plain old smear attacks and denials designed to imply anyone that disagrees with them is either stupid, on the payroll of big oil or both.
