NOAA’s Chief Scientist Sacked

By Paul Homewood

Pots and kettles, and all that!!


The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration’s top scientist has been removed from his position after he asked new Trump-appointed staff to acknowledge the agency’s scientific integrity policy, according to a new report.

Craig McLean, the agency’s acting chief scientist, was dismissed from his role last month shortly after sending an email to the new political appointees, including former White House adviser Erik Noble, the New York Times reported.

McLean had reportedly asked them to respect the NOAA’s scientific integrity policy which prohibits fabrication, falsification and manipulation of research data driven to fit a political agenda.


That’s a bit rich, given that NOAA themselves have been fabricating data for years!

It was NOAA which fundamentally transformed the US temperature record from this:



to this:



And, of course, it was NOAA’s own Director, Thomas Karl, who back in 2015 conveniently manipulated the data to get rid of that embarrassing pause in global temperatures:


The fact that Karl just happened to discover all of this only a few months before the Paris Agreement was signed had nothing to do with it, of course!

As for Craig McLean, he is not the “Top Scientist”, as described by the Mail. He is in fact a lawyer, who has filled administrative roles at NOAA for many years. As such, he has carried out the political agenda of Obama and previous Presidents.

The only surprise is that he was not sacked years ago by Trump.
