INTERIOR SECY: I Don't Want Any Climate-Change Deniers in My Dept...

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?

For example, what if that person posted a news article pointing out that the global temperatures have been flat for the last two decades?

Presumably somebody at the Interior Department knows the answers to these questions. Whether they’re willing to talk openly about them is another question.

Update: Video of Jewell's remarks, which was posted on department's Livestream account, is now posted below.

Climate change is manufactured "science" in order to give government yet more control.

You're not allowed to question any part of science that everyone takes for granted as "known", or any science derived from it.

Detractors are mocked, called names, dismissed, and shunned.

"Climate change denier" is kind of a misnomer. Most people have no clue what the actual debate surrounding climate change really is. Climate change is happening, it's always happening to some degree, one just has to look at the rock record for proof. We are always either moving toward or away from an ice age on a cycle that is directly pinned to cycles related to the orbital path and orbital precession of the planet. Theoretically we should be on the cusp of the next ice age. I really don't like the language that has developed around climate change, it gives people the impression that established facts with regards to natural cycles our planet goes through are somehow untrue. It reminds me of the phrase "common sense gun control" People who think that climate change isn't happening are deluding themselves for political purposes. The debate is whether or not humans are responsible at some level for the changes that ARE occurring and whether it's actually possible to do anything about it (I'm not sure we can even if the resources were available), and that is a dispute that is much harder to settle, not that climate change isn't happening. A lot of people out there are getting the wrong impression about it because of how politicized it has become in recent years.

"Climate Change" as touted by the left has been reduced down to "Man-made Global Warming" because they have absconded with the term to meet their own ends.

Yes, the climate is changing--the climate has always changed, and that's undeniable. But because the left uses the term to mean what they want when they want, and therefore control the terms, "climate change deniers" are touted as people who do not understand basic sciences (such as the climate shifts through time) when in fact they are denying man made global warming because the arguments by the left are made from that position, but they counter the 'deniers' by touting the scientific evidence and ignoring the lack of correlation via the man made part.

And in all fairness, the left and the media ONLY focus on the man made part because they want to pass bills/laws/taxes/etc to further their own political agenda and gain power through a scientific term.
