Francesca Grifo, senior scientist with the Union of Concerned Scientists scientific integrity program, told the committee that 1,800 federal scientists from multiple agencies have reported concerns about interference. She said more than 600 scientists from nine agencies reported fear of retaliation for publicizing their findings and nearly 500 scientists from nine agencies said they were barred from publishing certain results related to climate change.
In a report released today by the Union of Concerned Scientists, Grifo said 150 climate-change scientists reported at least one incident of political interference with their work over the past five years.
"Interference can take many forms, from censorship, to suppression, to dissemination of inaccurate information," she said. "There are numerous examples of public affairs officers at numerous agencies serving as gatekeepers for scientific information."
Drew Shindell, a climatologist at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said he has experienced this firsthand. www.federaltimes.com

Didn't you see the discussion a while back about this topic? Follow the money trail. Billions spent on global warming so far. For every blow hard in front of Congress pandering for money, there are reputable scientists that will tell you it is bunk. Find someone that knows the science and they will tell you a far different story than what the talking heads are saying.

"According to CNN, the World Bank recently examined 20 of the most severely polluted cities in the world. Sixteen of these cities are located in China, and Linfen City, in Shanxi Province, was cited as the world's most polluted city."

None of the top 20 are in the US, but who do these blowhards and the UN want to pony up the money and change the most? I will give you 3 guesses.

Good one CZ, You C&P from a network that is left of air America. The content of the C&P is based on an old opinion paper written by a Canadian politician who has not even acknowledged writing it. LMAO, thanks . :D

CBC is so left wing that I find myself jumping up and down defending the W. administration while watching it :eek: . Why do I watch it you might ask? Because when I visit Quebec, it is one of the few English speaking news networks on basic cable there.

CZ I was more addressing the censorship of scientific information by the federal government. We will see what Waxman's investigation discloses. Certainly there are many issues that require censorship ie. national security issues. I do not feel that climatic issues are within that umbrella.

Agreed but it works both ways. Like I said for every scientist claiming there is man-made global warming there is another, who is just as credible, that refutes it. However, these guys, too, are censored by the same people crying about cencorship. Follow the money....

Since he's listed as an Associate Prof at UDEL, he should have tenure. His position at the University should be safe, but not his position as State Climatologist. If the governor disagrees, he can censor his work or fire him.

Many fed and state employees are protected by the Civil Service act. I will await the committee findings on censoring information that the public, whose taxes pay the payrolls, should reasonably have in order to make life and death decisions. Certainly there are some who simply go along the "party" line. I'm not one of them.

Much has appeared in this very forum from the science community to show that global warming is NOT a scientic fact. It is however is political fact and as such is being shoved down our throats so that we will stand idly by ready to endure unending economic torture to finance the lefts (wanna be self fulfilling prophesy) of social change and world development.

Really believe they are happier poor and we shouldn't allow them to mine THEIR resources to raise their standard of living? Some people will buy socialist claptrap no matter what form it's in......

Nobel nominee Al Gore?

I have seen much on this forum which shows that global warming may or may not be tied to human activity. I have seen little credible evidence that there is not some minor, global climate change, albeit temporary.
I don't think the scientist dispute the change in climate but who or what is causing the change is what they disagree upon.

Maybe so RF but that is not what you said. Hence, the reason I am always commenting on your grammar. What you said is: "the science community to show that global warming is NOT a scientic fact"

Now, is global warming not a scientific fact or the reason behind global warming not a fact? They are two very different things. I have read from scientists who actually deny that there is any global warming but most credible scientists that I read seem to agree that the earth has warmed in the last quarter century but no one (except some on the very left who tend to only agree with like-minded folk) seem to be in agreement as to the cause.

Of course, I'm not sure what a scientic is as the word was not in my dictionary so you may not have been saying what I think you said. lol

Nobel nominee Al Gore for his efforts to make the world aware of global warming. Don't they have international scientists on the committee to evaluate who receives nominations and awards?
