Alan Carlin, a senior operations research analyst who has worked at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for 38 years, alleges the agency has suppressed his most recent report on the CO2 Endangerment Finding. In this video, he appears on FOX News to discuss the situation.
In the report, which can be found here, Carlin says that the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis fails “the ultimate scientific test—conformance with real world data.” He also criticizes the EPA’s acceptance of “the findings reached by outside groups, particularly the IPCC and the CCSP, as being correct without a careful and critical examination of their conclusions and documentation.” Carlin surveys a variety of scientific literature and evidence that contradicts those conclusions, and calls for the EPA to investigate the matter for itself.
The report was summarily dismissed, however, by his immediate supervisor, who told Carlin in an email that the “time for such discussion of fundamental issues has passed for this round. The administrator and the [Obama] administration has decided to move forward on endangerment, and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision.” Carlin’s supervisor also forbade him to speak to anyone outside the agency about his work.
Members of the GOP in Congress are outraged, and Senator Inhofe is calling for an investigation into the EPA’s actions.
