A Reminder Of The Historical Depravity Of The Obama Adminstration

In 1989, the White House told Hansen that he could not falsely represent his certainty or claim that his was the only point of view.

Toledo Blade – May 9, 1989

WASHINGTON – The White House is defending its decision to change the congressional testimony that a top government scientist gave on global warming.

The Bush administration yesterday stood behind the revisions. made by the Office of Management and Budget, and said they dealt, with statements of policy, not scientific evidence.
Dr James Hansen. director of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, told senators yesterday that OMB forced him to contradict in his written report his finding that a buildup of “greenhouse effect” gases would increase the likelihood of drought

In testimony before the Senate subcommittee on science, technology and space, Dr. Hansen said OMB told him to soften some of his observations and added a final paragraph that suggested his predictions might not be reliable.

The changes were made over his objections, he said.

“He’s an outstanding and distinguished scientist,” Mr. Fitzwater said. “We urge him to present his views in any and every forum possible.

“But we simply point out that there are other points of view on this issue and that the administration policy has not been established.”

OMB modified this recommendation with a disclaimer that his findings on the rate and magnitude of drought, storms, and temperature change are “estimates from evolving computer models” and are “not reliable predictions.”

Hansen proved to be dead wrong on everything, and the White House objections were correct. Lefties were hysterical that Hansen’s mindless nonsense was being toned down.

Compare that to Obama, who has declared that the only acceptable point of view is the one he holds, and strongly hinted that anyone who does not hold his point of view will be purged from the government.

“It doesn’t create jobs when you go after scientists, and you try to offer your own alternative theories of how things work and engage in litigation around stuff that isn’t political,”

“It has to do with what’s true. It has to do with facts. You don’t argue with facts.

No alternative theories are permitted, and truth is determined by whatever random thought is trapped inside Obama’s brain. This is what progressives call science.

  1. This still seems ham-fisted to me. If the guy believes what he believes why try to force him to make some different claim? Just because someone has a belief, it doesn’t make the belief true. Just because someone is a scientist, it doesn’t make that person infallible. On deeply uncertain topics, scientists seldom understand a problem better than non-scientists.

    Someone (hint) ought to do a graph like the alarmists do, of GISP with gistemp or hadcru stuck on the end. Only with actual intrumental data instead of gistemp or hadcru – an actual local instrumental record like TASIILAQ (ANGMAGSSALIK)

    I have tried but my skills are just not up to the task to get the scaling and normalisation to match

    Because science is not a matter of opinion.
