Posted on 12/20/2016 3:09:35 PM PST by Enlightened1
A new congressional investigation has determined that the Obama administration fired a top scientist and intimidated staff at the Department of Energy in order to further its climate change agenda, according to a new report that alleges the administration ordered top officials to obstruct Congress in order to forward this agenda.
Rep. Lamar Smith (R., Texas), chair of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, released a wide-ranging report on Tuesday that shows how senior Obama administration officials retaliated against a leading scientist and plotted ways to block a congressional inquiry surrounding key research into the impact of radiation.
A top DoE scientist who liaised with Congress on the matter was fired by the Obama administration for being too forthright with lawmakers, according to the report, which provides an in-depth look at the White Houses efforts to ensure senior staffers toe the administrations line.
The report also provides evidence that the Obama administration worked to kill legislation in order to ensure that it could receive full funding for its own hotly contested climate change agenda.
The report additionally discovered efforts by the Obama administration to censor the information given to Congress, interfering with the bodys ability to perform critical oversight work.
Instead of providing the type of scientific information needed by Congress to legislate effectively, senior departmental officials sought to hide information, lobbied against legislation, and retaliated against a scientist for being forthcoming, Smith said in a statement. In this staff report based on lengthy record before the committee, much has been revealed about how senior level agency officials under the Obama administration retaliated against a scientist who did not follow the party line.

Snowed in Syria. First time in a quater century.
I didn’t think so.
Dear God Please expose this fraud of ‘man-caused climate change’ once and for all- in Jesus Name Amen
More Obama corruptions comes to light. This unearthing of the Obama corruption will become more and more apparent as time goes by.
“Snowed in Syria.”
Doesn’t matter. It’s ‘climate change’ now. If it snows in Rio, climate change. If it’s hot in Alaska, climate change. Hail in Miami, climate change.
I hope Trump offers him a higher position in the agency...and gives him a broom and a pad of pink slips to hand out.
Obama should be fired.... Oh wait.... nevermind
The new doj should go after all of Obama’s underlings. That way they’ll sing like little birdies implicating Obama in all kinds of rotten, illegal stuff
Also snowed in Algeria
Ivanka Trump posted on breitbart: we’re going to stuff the DOE with climate scientists who know global warming is a hoax
She was probably thinking of this one
"This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history.
"This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution. That will not happen overnight and it will not happen at a single conference on climate change, be it COP 15, 21, 40 - you choose the number. It just does not occur like that. It is a process, because of the depth of the transformation."
--Christiane Fugueres, Executive Secretary of UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change)
Dr. Noelle Metting. Trump should hire her back.
I would say investigate everyone on Executive Levels 1 through 5 between 12:00 noon January 20, 2009 and 12:00 noon January 20, 2017. Every one of them under the microscope.
Obama administration worked to kill legislation in order to ensure that it could receive full funding for its own hotly contested climate change agenda.
Thank You John Boehner and Paul Ryan, you quisling ,lying bastards ought to be ran out of the COUNTRY!
It only happened because of these two quislings.
We just had the fastest absolute drop in atmospheric temperatures during the past 10 months. Fastest in recent recorded history. That is simply impossible if solar radiation levels are insignificant and CO2 levels have increased the greenhouse effect.
