DOE head releases revised ‘integrity policy’ to thwart Trump’s administration

The Department of Energy released an updated “scientific integrity policy” yesterday, a ploy cooked up with a Democrat-led activist group to label the incoming administration as anti-#Science.

The revised policy says its “scientists, engineers, and contractors” can share their “scientific findings and views” with the press and public.

Staffers can also correct errors in DOE documents if they feel they aren’t accurate representations of their work. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said it will “enshrine the independence of the scientific process for decades to come.”

Moniz believes the new policy will encourage DOE employees to speak with the press and publish their work, even if the information given to the press is inaccurate or used to embarrass the administration.

As such, DOE personnel can give their own opinions without fear of reprisal that supervisors will coerce them into changing their “scientific or technological findings or conclusions.”

More politicization

The new policy was crafted with the activist group Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), whose deputy director, Michael Halpern, was a former Democratic politico who shills on behalf of his party’s agenda.

Halpern said President-Elect #Donald Trump‘s pick to head the DOE—former Gov. Rick Perry—will likely get asked about this new policy at his confirmation hearing.

    What a joke . The Union of Concerned “Scientists ” now concerned about DOE employees being able to speak out. At least they are acknowledging the science isn’t settled and he didn’t call them scientists . Where were they in the last 8 years when
    science and political thugs tried to silence people ?
    The Scary Global Warming Clowns tried to silence and bully those that didn’t tow the line and now the jig is up they want to change the rules ? The Inconvenient Truth
    Democrat style .
    The great thing about Trumps win was it caught the MSM and fat happy socialists totally flat footed .
    “Enshrine the independence of the scientific process . ” The Global Warming Industry
    is full of sad faces because they know the con game is over .

    Isn’t it time Moniz put it in a bun . Any time you have to have an integrity policy means you don’t have any . How about one called a Fudged Climate Science Policy
    or a Hide The Decline Policy .
    The quicker the scientific method gets brought in the faster the restored integrity of
    climate science . $$ Defund and the earth’s fever will miraculously be cured .

    Turn the table on them. Start a new department, staff it with those who have been silenced, ostracized and /or persecuted and sic ‘ em on the Climate Mob. RICO statutes would be appropriate. Government funds have been funneled into a fraud. Corner a few of them and watch the code of silence break down. Drain the swamp.

    Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz’s idea of the “independence of the scientific process” is suspect at best. Anyone working on “climate change” for the government must come up with data to support AGW; attention of the public must be kept on some looming catastrophe for which they are likely responsible. All of this movement is a globalist con to control our lives and limit our freedom. There is a rebellion brewing worldwide on this manipulated, unscientific climate con—rest in peace “climate scientists!!!!
