Obama promised to remove politics from science, and has done the exact opposite. He is openly targeting skeptics and attempting to force his political will on the science community.
When Bush was president, climate alarmists complained bitterly that Bush told Hansen to limit his language to established science during his 4,000 or so media interviews. (In Merchants of Doubt, Hansen said that he was shy and didn’t like attention.)
The same climate alarmists now are targeting, threatening and harassing skeptical scientists and journalists, and doing everything they can to silence dissent.
The free press and open debate was established for a critically important reason. Climate alarmists are the new fascists.
