The EPA has been hit with a veritable flood of scandals recently.
We covered the Animas River spill, caused by the EPA's rush to solve a non-problem involving a mine's wastewater, which impacted the water quality for several Western states.
Now, one climate change expert who posed as a CIA operative has been jailed for conning the agency out of nearly $1 Million.

"The Environmental Protection Agency's top climate change expert and highest paid employee was sentenced to 32 months in federal prison today for defrauding the government.
"John C. Beale, who lives with his wife in Virginia, claimed he was a CIA agent working in Pakistan so he didn't have to show up for work for months at a time and defrauded the government out of more than $900,000.
"The 65-year-old's 13 year scam was 'inexplicable' and 'unbelievably egregious', Judge Ellen Huvelle said in Washington D.C. federal court today."

EPA's top-paid employee motivated by "greed" and "sense of excitement".
Do you think this “climate change expert” criminal asshat ever lied about his “science”? I hope this degenerate LIB idiot bends over to get the soap many, many times.
Funny use of the word ‘inexplicable.’
How many more days left before we all burn up according to Al Bore?
White guy. But yet Sharpton remains free owing (defrauding) the taxman millions.
Best 900K the EPA has spent to date.
DISMANTLE/DEFUND/DOWNSIZE EPA. UNaffordable, UNaccountable bureaucracy.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
It seems ironic to me that a person can be convicted of defrauding a thug agency that defrauds the public and abuses it’s power that was created by money taken from people through abusive and threatening tactics.
I guess when the government grants start falling off these “experts” have to do something to make a living. Wen it comes to da environment, there are TWO ways to con the America taxpayers. Legally and illegally
Yes, if the judge meant the crime itself. That is well explicified by the money. But maybe she was referring to the fact that the EPA didn't catch the guy in 13 years. That aspect is rifer with inexplicableness.
Must be he ignored the required kick backs.
I hope he’s right, I could use a warming trend here in Louisiana. Going to be like 31 or lower tonight.
“Climate Change” Expert Jailed for Conning EPA out of $900K”.......
If we think that is bad, how much did Al Gore con all of us out of? Got to be millions.
...Hundred of millions for his obese, degenerate, criminal, sex-poodle self.
He will be given the medal of freedom. He will be pardoned. And he will write a book about how to defraud the government in five easy steps and make millions.
