EPA climate change position falling apart from the inside

Michelle Malkin has pointed us to a fascinating set of e-mails between Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) employees that, in my opinion, show how the agency is turning into a political organization helping to support the environmental climate change agenda of the far left.

Again, hat tip to Michelle.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute has obtained internal EPA e-mails that show the agency willfully and recklessly disregarded scientific data that undermined the bureaucracy’s global warming zealotry.
This information is especially relevant as Congress rushes to pass the cap-and-trade nightmare on Friday.

CEI general counsel Sam Kazman has notified the EPA and requested that the internal communications and suppressed study be released to the public and added to the public record. Will another whistleblower be disappeared? Note especially this warning to the dissenting scientist: “The time for such discussion of fundamental issues has passed for this round. The administrator and the administration has decided to move forward on endangerment, and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision… I can only see one impact of your comments given where we are in the process, and that would be a very negative impact on our office.”

We’ve uploaded the PDF that includes the background and copies (images) of all the e-mails.

How about reading the document – it will only take you 10 minutes – and let us know what you think in the comments section?

    The global warming mafia is taking a page our the the AIDS fiction book.

    Its about funding, funding, funding and continuing the lies and deceptions because IF both sides came out, the public MIGHT start not to consider global warming a priority, and thats bad news for the $$$$$.

    They HAVE to keep it in the spotlight. Funny, they accused GWB of using scare tactics. They did it with AIDS, population explosion, nuclear power and now GW. Wanna be able to tell when the GW champions are lying? Well, they move their lips.

    "Climate change" is something our planet has done for millions of years. This post is a graphic demonstration of the current administration's attempt to conceal that fundamental truth.

    Why? Because if we are only fed the government propoganda we will go along with the Cap and Trade legislation, and the enormous tax increases it will bring to all of us.

    Cap and Trade will do nothing to alter the natural progression of our planet. But,it will put millions of our dollars into the hands of government to squander as it pleases.

    "The Competitive Enterprise Institute has obtained internal EPA e-mails that show the agency willfully and recklessly disregarded scientific data that undermined the bureaucracy’s global warming zealotry."

    That one sentence sums up the "consensus" of "scientists" with respect to anthropogenic climate change. Anyone who bothers to look at the geologic record of the climate of the planet cannot say (with a straight face, anyway) that anything happening today is unusual, significant and particularly, significantly affected by mankind. In fact, we are about 20,000 years overdue for an ice age, so maybe the addition of greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere is a good thing!

    Why does anyone think that ManBearPig Gore doesn't dare debate the issue?

    It is all about grabbing power and controlling the global economy by people that are grossly unqualified to do either.

    Is it coincidence that Alan's web page bandwidth is max'd out?
