#1 Interior Secretary: I don't want any climate-change deniers in my department08-12-2013, 09:12 PM

Buried in a lengthy Washington Post article about President Obama’s environmental policy is an illuminating anecdote about just how debatable the administration views climate change — namely, not at all:
In an agency-wide address to employees Aug. 1, (Interior Secretary Sally) Jewell took the unusual step of suggesting that no one working for her should challenge the idea that human activity is driving recent warming. “I hope there are no climate-change deniers in the Department of Interior,” she said.
The address does not appear to be posted on the department’s website, so the Washington Examiner can only go by the Post’s presumably third-hand version. Still, it raises some interesting questions: What would happen to somebody at the department who raised some skepticism regarding Jewell’s take on climate change? Would they be in danger of losing their job?
Welcome to irrational government, the end is near but not of the planet.

How shocking that a Hive Mind exists related to GW and the gubmint.
I'd love to see someone sue their asses off and have that little tidbit submitted as evidence.
Of course, it probably never happened...May the FORCE be with you!

Everybody knows that there is only one side to everything. After all, the World is flat, and the Sun and the stars revolve around the Earth. And if you disagree, you will be burned at the stake.....or lose your job!
Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.
