Interior Department Head: No “Climate Change” Deniers Allowed

(E&E News) Interior Secretary Sally Jewell today challenged her employees to take an active role in the “moral imperative” to address climate change.

“I hope there are no climate change deniers in the Department of Interior,” she said.

If there are any, she invited them to visit public lands managed by the agency – be it the melting permafrost in Alaska or shrinking snowpacks in the Sierra Mountains – as proof. “If you don’t believe in it, come out into the resources,” she said.

Interior will be following through on President Obama’s climate change plan, including achieving 20 gigawatts of renewable power on public lands by 2020, she said.

“You and I can actually do something about it,” she said several times. “That’s a privilege, and I would argue it’s a moral imperative.”

Let’s first note that it is despicable for an appointed head of a major federal agency, one of the first to be established back in 1789, to use a phrase likening people who do not buy into man-induced global warming to those who do not believe in the Holocaust. Second, “climate change” is an un-scientific term when used in this context. Third, the idiocy of comparing climate to morality is astounding. Not surprising, coming from these left wing loons, but still astounding.

Fourth, when the leader of an agency talks like this, it’s not an off the cuff remark between friends, it is an admonishment at best, a threat at worst, designed to tell the employees of Interior that they best damned well toe the line in believing in Hotcoldwetdry, because dissent will not be tolerated.

As for “going out in the resources” (which seems to be telling employees to waste taxpayer money on trips), well, 71% of the US is below average so far this year. July cold records outpaced warm ones. July was pretty cool across the US. I know that here in North Carolina we’ve yet to have a 100F day. We’ve barely even seen days where the heat index breaks 100.

Oh, and aren’t you super excited to have our public lands used for “green” energy?

But, let’s not forget that Interior Department employees have been put on notice that their jobs depend upon Believing.
