President Trump disbands federal advisory panel on climate change

President Trump disbands federal advisory panel on climate change

Brace yourselves for the howls from environmental justice warriors

President Trump continues the shaking up of his administration.

Last week, White House advisor Steve Bannon returned to Breitbart after tendering his resignation two weeks prior.

This week, the federal advisory panel on climate change is getting iced out:

The Trump administration has decided to disband the federal advisory panel for the National Climate Assessment, a group aimed at helping policymakers and private-sector officials incorporate the government’s climate analysis into long-term planning.

The charter for the 15-person Advisory Committee for the Sustained National Climate Assessment – which includes academics as well as local officials and corporate representatives – expires Sunday. On Friday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s acting administrator, Ben Friedman, informed the committee’s chair that the agency would not renew the panel.

The National Climate Assessment is supposed to be issued every four years but has come out only three times since passage of the 1990 law calling for such analysis.

Those who follow the climate change antics will pay attention to the charge that past of the reason for this decision may be that assessment, which asserts that global temperatures are increasing, is due out shortly and reports are that the President is not happy with the conclusions.

The group worked on the National Climate Assessment, the mandated quadrennial report that was leaked last month as a draft. The report is due to be released in 2018, but The New York Times reported that scientists working on it worried the Trump administration would try to bury some or all of its conclusions and may have leaked it for that reason.

The report concludes that Americans are already feeling the effects of climate change and says it is “extremely likely” that the majority of global temperature increases in the past 60 years are partially due to human influence.

The White House is in the process of reviewing a final version of the assessment.

However, it is known that a number of global temperature data sets have been manipulated. Cap-and-trade programs are failures, and carbon credit scams have been reported and prosecuted. Predictions such as “no more snow” have fallen short (e.g., late-season snow in the Rockies and Sierras).

President Trump has a good understanding of science and a robust understanding of business. Here is what a defender of the panel had to say:

Richard Wright, the past chair of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Committee on Adaptation to a Changing Climate, has been working with the federal advisory panel to convey the importance of detailed climate projections in next year’s assessment. The society establishes guidelines that form the basis of building codes across the country, and these are based on a historical record that may no longer be an accurate predictor of future weather extremes.

“We need to work on updating our standards with good estimates on what future weather and climate extremes will be,” Wright said Saturday. “I think it’s going to be a serious handicap for us that the advisory committee is not functional.”

Implementing those codes and standards-based on politicized science who have cost Americans billions of dollars needlessly. Trump has probably determined it’s a “bad deal”, and it makes sense the panel would meet the same face as the “Paris Accord”.

Brace yourselves for the howls from environmental justice warriors!

    Think of the resulting reduction in the government’s carbon footprint — less travel, less paper, less electricity, … .

How many more of these “Advisory Committees” are burrowed in like ticks on the leviathan’s back?

National Climate Assessment – disband

Thank you President Trump!

    Just one minute there! Global warming is real! It was 74 degrees when I went to Mickey D’s for breakfast and after the evil sun came up it has gotten progressively warmer. It might even get to a sweltering 88 degrees later this afternoon. We need to put our very best climate scientists workers on this problem. For the children.

    But we NEED this commission in order to determine how to build our buildings. How will we ever figure out how to build something in a cold climate or a warm climate or a rainy climate without the invaluable (and taxpayer-funded) input from this bunch?

I would think the members of the climate change advisory panel would have already followed the lead of those “brave” (sarc) CEO’s who resigned from the business advisory councils in protest over Trumps response to Charlottesville.

It doesn’t look like anybody’s disbanding anything. The panel’s charter expires soon, and NOAA isn’t asking for a renewal. That implies a natural bureaucratic death, and one which doesn’t involve the President. He’ll be attacked for it anyway, of course.

And they are SCREAMING all over Facebook because the rule that does not allow the sale of disposable water bottles on Federal Lands – though the sale of the same bottles containing sugary drinks is fine – has been eliminated along with the White House Employees only Bike Share rack in DC.

While the political climate has become a scorcher, this is a relief from the sweltering oppressive atmosphere of inexact non-reproducible settled science….for which real science has been experiencing a drought over the years. With Trump there is a real climate of change.

    Yeah, Trump is just the man to lead us into a new scientific renaissance. Even conservatives can’t believe that. Hey, this council lasted longer than his others!

Haha…here comes the triggering hahaha

Brace myself? They haven’t stopped howling since November!

said CORRUPT Federal Advisory Committee was known for members getting Funds from the EPA for Climate Science with directed results..


Homo sapiens is the most successful species in history, having colonized all seven continents, because of our incredible ability to adapt to a wide range of climates in both space and time. The last thing I fear is natural climate change, even if man is contributing to it a bit. If we do somehow have the ability to modify Earth’s climate substantially, understanding how will help us terraform Mars.

    Boy, you are smug. Natural History shows a number of periods when the conditions were particularly suitable for some class or a more distinct classification. Inevitably, the populations crashed.

    Rather than looking at the prospect of terraforming Mars, I suggest you look at Venus. Clearly there is some upper limit to the amount of greenhouse gases the earth can tolerate before we bake.

Can Trump disband Climate Change? Nope.

    CZ75Compact in reply to YellowSnake. | August 21, 2017 at 4:59 pm

    He doesn’t need to — the data themselves condemn the anthropogenic carbon dioxide catastrophe hypothesis. The Little Ice Age ended, naturally, in the mid-1800s.

    Can Trump prevent climate change?

    Nope, naturally occurs, big and powerful forces. Man is a peon compared to nature.

    You commie progs can’t stop climate change. You don’t even understand geologic history.

      Aw, Barry, I swoon whenever you call me a commie prog.

      YellowSnake in reply to Barry. | August 21, 2017 at 9:00 pm

      If it wasn’t for the very scientists you dismiss, you wouldn’t even know the term ‘geologic history’. I know you fascist pigs have websites to crib from. But can you think Barry? I have seen no sign of it so far.

      If Trump is so sure that climate science is a hoax, why kill the data collection? In the end wouldn’t that expose the hoax? But maybe killing the science allows fools like you to stick your head in the sand,

      Come on Barry, I can’t wait for you to call me a commie prog again.

        Commie prog.

        Stupid commie prog.

        To be fair, I have an actual education, including both geology and atmospheric sciences. You have your commie prog talking points, the language of idiots.

        You think Venus has something to teach us about the earths climate. How brilliant.

          YellowSnake in reply to Barry. | August 22, 2017 at 12:39 am

          Ah, the analogy. The Nazis refused to accept relativity because it was Jewish Science. You refuse to believe Climate Change cause you claim it is commie prog science. You are just another Knownothing being suckered. Too bad you are determined to take the rest of us with you.

        What data collection? The one Mann would rather go to jail than release so everyone can see how he faked it? Or the earlier one from East Anglia we have the e-mails describing how it was faked?

          Just a bunch of self-serving urban myth BS that you guys share because it fits your preconceived beliefs. Funny how no one has actually been convicted of contempt of court and no one has been dismissed from their position.

          There is a big conspiracy – by the deniers who take every bit of alleged irregularity and weave it into the scenario you wish to believe. Sadly, your progeny will curse you.

          Barry in reply to SDN. | August 22, 2017 at 6:23 am

          Yellowbelly, a commie prog dumbass parody.

          “and weave it into the scenario you wish to believe. ”

          LOL, you are oblivious. This is a result of stupidity.
