Soon said he would create a "place in hell" to put the U.N.'s climate science and predictions. "There will be a very special place I will create for them. Please go there. It's nonsense. Even a little kid will know this is wrong." "Just close IPCC," Soon said. "Seriously, just close it," he said, in responding to a federal worker's question, asking why Soon has not met with the IPCC.
2017: Morano: "We have a rational, scientific approach coming to Washington under the Trump administration." Morano claims, that climate science is manufactured as part of a U.N. conspiracy. From a more practical standpoint, Morano wants the Trump administration to overturn Obama-era executive orders like the Clean Power Plan, defund the United Nations climate panel, and to "Clexit" (or "climate exit") from the Paris Climate Accords. He also suggested, in glowing terms, that fellow traveler Happer may join the Trump administration as a "science czar."
Lindzen: Since MIT’s administration has made the climate issue a major focus for the Institute, with (MIT's) PAOC playing a central role, it is not surprising that the department would object to any de-emphasis. But the PAOC letter shows very clearly the wisdom of James Madison’s admonition, in the Federalist, 10:
“No man is allowed to be a judge in his own cause, because his interest would certainly bias his judgment, and, not improbably, corrupt his integrity. With equal, nay with greater reason, a body of men are unfit to be both judges and parties at the same time.”
For far too long, one body of men, establishment climate scientists, has been permitted to be judges and parties on what the “risks to the Earth system associated with increasing levels of carbon dioxide” really are.
