During the Obama Administration’s reign, all government agencies seem to have become political and all government data seems to be questionable. Here’s Investor’s Business Daily wondering why data related to “climate change” is being withheld:
Earlier this year, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists took part in a study that found — no surprise — that the “pause” in global warming from 1998 to 2013 didn’t exist.
Their change didn’t come from actual temperature readings. It came from extensive data manipulation and tinkering. Instead of a pause, they found a surge. …
Enter Rep. Lamar Smith, a Texas Republican and chairman of the House Science Committee. Curious, he subpoenaed NOAA for research documents related to the study. NOAA refused to hand them over. Smith’s committee wants to know why.
As even the Associated Press has noted, “Obama administration sets new record for withholding FOIA requests.” Among the darker thoughts to come to mind when considering this trend is to wonder how terrifying it must be to insiders of the current regime and their allies to think that somebody who isn’t part of their own party — or at least part of the Washington, D. C. establishment — could win the White House. People terrified of the truth’s coming out can be dangerous.
