If there’s anything climate campaigners hate it’s fair discussion.

They don’t want you to hear the facts that correct their narrative no matter how outrageous they get.

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is working to uncork the global warming debate through a “red team/blue team” approach.

Take a look at CFACT.org at David Wojick’s articles on opening up the climate debate and Michael Bastasch’s article on why President Obama’s science advisor John Holdren fears that very thing.

Government agencies sometimes engage in a red team/blue team approach to determine the merits and alternatives of a concept or policy before making a decision.  The Defense Department often uses it.

When it comes to climate it’s about time.

The Left has been so successful at keeping the public in the dark about any facts that challenge their far-fetched pronouncements about the climate that they are looking for ways to shut down debate on a host of other topics.

Calling people “racists” is a current favorite.

Administrator Pruitt is right to throw the global warming discussion wide open.

Free speech is a “use it or lose it” proposition.

Let’s use it.
