Sad, sad day for , the U.S. and the world: As Election Nears, Trump Makes a Final Push Against Climate Science #ClimateChange
As election nears Trump makes a final push against #ClimateScience by removing the chief scientist at the nation’s premier scientific agency NOAA's recent report noted "#ClimateChange poses an imminent and dire threat to the U.S. and its economy"
An inside look at the Trump administration's 11th-hour effort to reshape NOAA.
. and I spent some time looking at what's happening inside NOAA, and what the Trump administration is trying to do there. Hint: It involves climate science.
Fine reporting on a final push of political appointees at NOAA...
NOAA's chief scientist emailed new political appointees, asking them to acknowledge the agency's scientific integrity policy. (Politically appointed) chief of staff Erik Noble asked why he was sending it to them - then removed him from office.

“You no longer serve as the acting chief scientist.” NEW: The Trump administration is mounting a new attack on climate science. By +
The Trump administration has mostly taken a hands-off approach to NOAA, the premiere United States climate research agency. That appears to be changing.

NOAA has been a bastion of independent climate research in the federal government. Now, that independence appears to be under threat from the Trump administration.
The acting chief scientist asked the new political appointee to commit to respecting science. “By what authority?” asked the appointee. The next day, the scientist was stripped of his role. By

The Trump administration has so far taken a mostly hands-off approach at NOAA, the nation's premiere climate research agency. That's changing.
Unfortunately 's ability to conduct science unimpeded by political interference appears to be coming to an end. Thankfully, the same appears likely to be true for the current administration.
Do you care whether the U.S. reduces carbon emissions? Or if fossil fuel companies can be sued for climate damages? Staff changes at NOAA could impact both those things (and more!)
As Election Nears, Trump Moves to Gut Climate Science
Craig McLean was fired as acting chief scientist. I have & will remain a big fan. A champion of doing the right thing, the right way. He stuck-up for science and pushed back following #sharpiegate .
There’s climate denialism, and then there is climate nihilism. Biden Dems accept the problem but think we still have a generation or two to address it (=still in denial). GOP also know there’s a problem but are actively trying to accelerate it.

If Trump is re-elected, there will be a frontal assault on US scientific capacity

Trump climate-denying apparatchiks fired NOAA's chief scientist for showing them the agency's integrity of science policy, and those political appointees are now censoring all agency communications. These are climate criminals.

While sea levels rise and the country is pummeled by a record-breaking hurricane season, who would find it a great idea to cripple and silence NOAA, the scientific institution studying these issues? The #ClimateCrisis can't be solved by closing your eyes.
Last month, NOAA's chief scientist asked Erik Noble, the new chief of staff, to acknowledge NOAA’s scientific integrity policy. Noble asked "by what authority," and, next day: “You no longer serve as the acting chief scientist for NOAA.”
There are many reasons to worry about the politicization happening at NOAA right now, but this is the loudest alarm bell with the conservative Supreme Court majority
Shameful “Mr. McLean had sent some of the new political appointees a message that asked them to acknowledge the agency’s scientific integrity policy... The following morning Dr. Noble responded “You no longer serve as the acting chief scientist for NOAA””
Interesting and troubling story by the formidable duo of and on NOAA staff changes and moves against climate science that could reverberate well past election day. [1/2]

In an administration where even uttering the words “climate change” is dangerous, NOAA has, so far, remained remarkably independent in its ability to conduct research about and publicly discuss global warming. That could be changing.
Big changes at NOAA. Big reporting from &
Appalling, but not surprising ...
there are a million other things happening but this administration’s war on climate science can’t be overlooked
'Mr. McLean answered that his role as acting chief scientist made him responsible for ensuring that the agency’s rules on scientific integrity were followed. ... “You no longer serve as the acting chief scientist for NOAA,” ...'
I look forward to the 'red team' chapter of the next National Climate Assessment.
Now appointees like are part of a wrecking crew at NOAA. This report says climate cranks like + have been getting briefings on undermining the next big federal climate assessment. Clown car.
The covid-19 plan is also the plan for climate change. --when it's uncertain, say it's not real --when it's proven, say the science is in dispute --when it's obvious, say it's too late to do anything

But we have the cleanest water and air... President Trump said so.
#Trump’s truly moonlighting as #Biden’s #zoomer outreach director
"Replacing Mr. McLean ... was Ryan Maue, a former researcher for the libertarian Cato Institute who has criticized climate scientists for what he has called unnecessarily dire predictions." Fark!! (see )
Between the climate-empty OSTP report and the news of climate-change marginalization in NOAA, it’s a bleak day for climate science.
