Finally… Republicans Confront Obama Administration on Junk Science Misconduct
Finally, Republicans in Congress challenged the Obama Administration over their junk science misconduct.
The lawmakers claim there are repeat incidents of “scientific misconduct” among federal agencies that are guiding radical Obama policy.
The GOP lawmakers highlighted the scolding a federal judge gave the Fish and Wildlife Service last month over testimony in defense of a plan to protect a tiny fish called delta smelt by diverting water in California away from farmland.
GOP reps confronted the Obama Administraion over their junk science misconduct in an official letter.
FOX News reported:
Several Republican lawmakers are challenging the Obama administration’s science czar over what they claim are repeat incidents of “scientific misconduct” among agencies, questioning whether officials who deal with everything from endangered species to nuclear waste are using “sound science.”
The letter sent Wednesday to John Holdren, director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, cited four specific controversies in recent years where scientific findings were questioned. Sens. David Vitter, R-La., and James Inhofe, R-Okla., and Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., rattled off a slew of questions on what they called “the apparent collapse in the quality of scientific work being conducted at our federal agencies.”
“Specifically, we are concerned with data quality, integrity of methodologies and collection of information, agencies misrepresenting publicly the weight of scientific ‘facts,’ indefensible representations of scientific conclusions before our federal court system, and our fundamental notions of ‘sound’ science,” they wrote. “We identify in this letter important examples of agency scientific misconduct.”
Inhofe spokesman Matt Dempsey told FoxNews.com the issues in the letter had been on Republicans’ radar screen “for some time.” But he said the lawmakers decided to compile them and confront the administration about it out of concern that a “trend” was developing.
“The concern is there’s a lot more there,” he said.
White House representatives so far have not returned requests for comment on the letter.
Then there’s my personal favorite… The Obama EPA claiming their job-killing policies will prevent 17,000 premature deaths – without a shred of evidence to back them up.
