White House Plans to Re-Assess 'Climate Change'

The White House plans to create an ad hoc group of select federal scientists to reassess the government’s analysis of climate science and counter its conclusions that the continued burning of fossil fuels is harming the planet, according to three administration officials.

The National Security Council initiative would include scientists who question the severity of climate impacts and the extent to which humans contribute to the problem, according to these individuals, who asked for anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The group would not be subject to the same level of public disclosure as a formal advisory committee.

The move would represent the Trump administration’s most forceful effort to date to challenge the scientific consensus that greenhouse gas emissions are helping drive global warming and that the world could face dire consequences unless countries curb their carbon output over the next few decades.

About time there was some pushback against a scam so patently obvious that a glance at a history book instantly disproves it. And yet the Left, seeking control over our lives at all times and in every way, has pushed this hogwash and, as is their wont, manufactured a “crisis” meant to frighten the children and empty your wallets.

While the plan is not finalized, NSC officials said they would take steps to assemble a group of researchers within the government. The group will not be tasked with scrutinizing recent intelligence community assessments of climate change, according to officials familiar with the plan.

The National Security Council declined requests to comment on the matter.

Good for the NSC. The intelligence community has so thoroughly disgraced itself over the past decade that it needs a thorough housecleaning — perhaps in Trump’s second term, if he can successfully dodge their machinations through re-election. Which means they’ll push their agenda even harder over the next years, which is why this National Security Council idea is so welcome.

The Left is always whining that they want to have a “conversation” about this or that. Okay, let’s have one — a real one, not a fixed fight — about “climate change.”
