Alan Carlin is a lifer at EPA who realizes that the EPA and the rest of the global warming bandwagon are heading straight over a cliff – science be damned. Read his report on his web site or just watch the movie (but the report is much more fun):
These inconsistencies between the TSD analysis and scientific observations are so important and sufficiently abstruse that in my view EPA needs to make an independent analysis of the science of global warming rather than adopting the conclusions of the IPCC and CCSP without much more careful and independent EPA staff review than is evidenced by the Draft TSP. Adopting the scientific conclusions of an outside group such as the IPCC or CCSP without thorough review by EPA is not in the EPA tradition anyway, and there seems to be little reason to change the tradition in this case. If their conclusions should be incorrect and EPA acts on them, it is EPA that will be blamed for inadequate research and understanding and reaching a possibly inaccurate determination of endangerment. Given the downward trend in temperatures since 1998 (which some think will continue until about 2030 given the 60 year cycle described in Section 2) there is no particular reason to rush into decisions based on a scientific hypothesis that does not appear to explain much of the available data.
It takes a scientist at the end of his career to be so blunt.
All in all the father of lies is having a field day passing off fantasy for science. Reminds me of the distortion of science in That Hideous Strength, C.S. Lewis’ final volume in his Space Trilogy.
