Censoring Climate Scientists

More

It's difficult to know how to maintain one's sense of outrage these days. Am I surprised to learn that the House Govern Reform Committee says that its "16-month investigation reveals a systematic White House effort to censor climate scientists by controlling their access to the press and editing testimony to Congress." Well, no, I'm not surprised. So am I shocked by the revelation? I guess I'm not. But is it shocking that this sort of thing has become par for the course? Well, yes it is. After all, this isn't some trivial little thing being kept under the rug; it's probably the most important issue facing the country.
