Posted on 10/19/2012 8:05:04 AM PDT by neverdem
The Obama administration is creating an advisory committee on climate change to advise the federal government on future operations.
The Interior Department announced the new bureaucracy in a recent federal registry notice along with a call for nominations by Nov. 19 to seat the 25-member board.
The notice specifically states membership will be comprised of state and local government employees, non-governmental organizations, Native American tribes, academia, individual landowners and business interests.
In addition, the committee may include scientific experts, and will include rotating representation from one or more of the institutions that host the (Interior Department) Climate Science Centers, the notice said.
The climate centers were created to provide scientific information to help land, water, wildlife and cultural resource managers to monitor and adapt to climate change on regional and local levels.
The National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center will serve the scientific needs of managers of fish, wildlife, habitats, and ecosystems as they plan for a changing climate.
The new committee will be chosen by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and will meet two to four times a year. Federal lobbyists need not apply, and government employees will be required to file an annual financial disclosure report.
The committee will advise on a national strategy to identify key science priorities to advance management of natural resources in the face of climate change.
Advice will also be given on how to ensure high standards of scientific quality and integrity, and the committee will evaluate the performance of the climate science centers.
Oy! Well that will be productive/s
As I've said, from now until January, The Messiah is gonna screw us as often as possible, and SPEND as much Taxpayer/Borrowed money as he can.
As it becomes more obvious that Obama will lose the election we’ll see more of these poison pills set up by the Executive branch. These will form the political fodder for future campaigns.
Romney would be wise to undo these immediately.
I’m waiting for this administration to start a “mole” committee.
No not a mole like a spy but a mole like one of those things tearing up my lawn.
For moles do not like the Prophet Mohammed and I want those heathans in the middle east to do something about it. They should riot and stomp across the planet to scare those horrible Mohammed-hating moles down to the center of the earth.
So I’m starting the rumor, please pass it on.
MOLES HATE THE PROPHET MOHAMMED!!!
Good, we can use their office to store the wrecking bars and stuff when we start dismantling the non-value-added parts of federal gummint.
It’s easy to see what’s really going on here.
Interior regulates all coal mining in the US.
Undo it as soon as Mitt Romney is sworn in on Jan. 20 at noon. And fire at least half of this worthless government. let them all get a real job.
Didn’t they hear? Global warming has already ended. This is a waste of time and resources. History will record that Al Gore perpetrated one of the great hoaxes of all time.
I guess the commies in our government didn’t get the memo: The Earth’s temperature has not risen at all in the last 16 years!
What a waste of taxpayer dollars!
* Combine Interior, Energy and the EPA and rename it the Dept of Resource Management.
* Fire 1/3 to 1/2 and go from 3 management teams to one.
* Co-locate in one building.
* The Focus of the New Dept will be to review all laws and regulations of the last 20 years (if not more) and they have to be justifed via their cost effectiveness as the primary driver...
I'd say that would be a good start...
This is how CARB started in California.
Succinct! Perfect! Let’s all demand it!
Sarah PALIN for Secretary of the Interior!!!
Who sez BHO hasn’t created jobs?
Can the House prevent ANY funding to this mess??
“Its easy to see whats really going on here.
Interior regulates all coal mining in the US.”
That wasn’t so obvious to me. Thanks for shedding light on this.
This ‘science’ has been discredited already, has it not? Why can’t the Republicans either stop this or at least delay it until next January 21st?
The legislation was mostly written by Arizona Congressman Mo Udall. It effectively closed 90 percent of the small family owned mines (less than 150,000 tons/year) in the US.
A huge new bureaucracy was created to do what the coal states were already doing. I was a mine manager at the time. We had GS-15s all over the place writing violations, which carried varying levels of penalties, including “cessation of mining.” If the miner didn't snap to, OSM had the power to bring in federal marshals with padlocks.
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
DC definitely thinks they have too much cash sitting around
I sure hope so. Bush didn't undo a damn thing that Clinton did, other than reversing clinton's executive order to kill children in third world countries.
The Democrats pass most of these things, and the Republicans just let them continue and grow.
Let’s not just hope so, let’s make sure our conservative leadership expects it. We’ve got to undo the Imperial Executive. It’s fundamentally unAmerican.
didn’t they get the memo about global warming being pure fiction???
Another waste of our good tax dollars.
Eh, eliminate them all together.
Maybe there’ll be less global warming if we stop burning money.
Just shutting them down isn’t enough any more. They need to be criminally charged and imprisoned as a deterrent to anyone else who tries this crap in the future.
“The Obama administration is creating an advisory committee on climate change to advise the federal government on future operations.”
Just when we thought all hope was lost...we’re saved!
” - - - advance management of natural resources - - - “
IOW: regulate - - - Control - - - DESTROY!
BTW, is this “Climate Change” Federal Boondoggle a tribute nod to former Weathermen, say someone named Bill Ayres?
Hopefully employment within that new Commie assembly will be very very short lived as the goon leaves office with his throngs of malefactors of all imaginations in January.
Will there never bexan end to this nonsense?
The world is now a safer place. The sea levels will begin to fall, ice will build up in the Arctic.
Thanks for the ping!
Thanks neverdem and bitt.
Thanks Eric in the Ozarks:
This will have the same effect on the climate as establishing a Ministry of Silly Walks.
Also drag the Forest Service out of USDA and include it within this
After Nov. 6th, the name of the committee will be changed to the Unemployed Charlatans Looking for a Job Committee.
And they can take that little twerp Salazar back to Colorado with them.
Will there never be an end to this nonsense?
that down the hall from the unicorn flatulence study committee .
