Warmists Are Super Unhappy To Base Regulations On Scientific Data

A perfect example of why I call the entire anthropogenic climate change issue political, rather than being scientific

From the link

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is reportedly planning to further restrict the use of scientific evidence in rule-making. The plans are inspired by efforts championed by one of Congress’ most notorious climate science deniers, House Science, Space, and Technology Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX).

The EPA’s initiative was discussed during a closed-door meeting on March 15 at the Heritage Foundation — a Washington, D.C. think tank known for promoting climate science denial and which was instrumental in influencing Trump’s transition team — E&E News reported Friday.

If adopted, the plan would require the EPA to rely only on scientific studies where the underlying data used by the researchers is made public. The impact would be to impose a dramatic burden on EPA officials effectively limiting their ability to introduce new protections for health and the environment. (snip)

Last March, the House passed Smith’s latest legislative effort — known as the HONEST Act — that would implement the rule at the EPA requiring regulations be based on data that is public and reproducible. The bill has not gone anywhere since, however. Smith has also tried to push the initiative under the 2019 proposed budget.

Zoinks! The Cult of Climastrology really, really, really doesn’t want their data available for others to see nor attempt to reproduce the outcomes. You know, the whole Scientific Method. If you can’t reproduce it, it is not scientific. And, as far as reproducible, Think Progress yammers on about peer review and stuff. I guess they missed the article on scientists not being able to replicate studies by their peers, published by that ultra-right wing outfit the BBC.

    A friend posted an article about Christmas Island and how rising sea levels are threatening to erode the cultural artifacts and burial grounds into the sea.I The author included a statement about how some scientists believe the sea could rise 4-6ft by 2100.

    Other friends commented about how sad this was.

    I simply looked up the PSMSL sea level gauge for Christmas Island. It shows the sea level being the same today as it was 40 years ago. It shows the long-term trend as being 0.33mm per year, which would yield one inch of rise by 2100. I posted the actual sea level trend chart. Instead of being relieved that Christmas Island was actually looking safe from sea level rise, they exploded in a torrent of outrage that this data goes against all science and consensus, that I am not well informed about climate change, and if something isn’t done now to protect the fragile culture and ecosystem a disaster will be on our collective conscious.

    Real science based on actual measurements is declared invalid when it doesn’t agree with the cult’s belief system.

    All the lawsuits may bring this to a head. Any “evidence” brought to court would have to show actual data, not hearsay date….

    They’d rather go with the “some scientist believe” rather than the actual data.

    Modern peer review with the left only dictates that the “peer” agree with the outcomes/conclusions. What’s confirmation bias? On par with Keynes starting with his ideology and working the math backwards to try and make it fit. There’s so much wrong with the science, deception, and smear campaigns that the left has used, and the intellectually bankrupt “the debate is settled,” that it just screams of desperation and corruption. You knew they lost when they had to re-brand midstream going from global warming to climate change.
