Blinded by science? or by socialist politics?

In March of 2009, Pres. Obama delivered a speech concerning his Administration's role in promoting science that was "free from manipulation or coercion, and scientific data that was "never distorted or concealed"---in order to promote a political agenda.    "Even when it's inconvenient" (truth).

In light of the recent ClimateGate scandal, and the upcoming Climate Treaty summit, will he remember his own proclamations when he's in Copenhagen?

"Promoting science isn't just about providing resources -- it's also about protecting free and open inquiry. It's about letting scientists like those who are here today do their jobs, free from manipulation or coercion, and listening to what they tell us, even when it's inconvenient -- especially when it's inconvenient. It is about ensuring that scientific data is never distorted or concealed to serve a political agenda -- and that we make scientific decisions based on facts, not ideology.

By doing this, we will ensure America's continued global leadership in scientific discoveries and technological breakthroughs. And that is essential not only for our economic prosperity, but for the progress of all humanity.

And that's why today I'm also signing a Presidential Memorandum directing the head of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to develop a strategy for restoring scientific integrity to government decision-making -- (applause) -- to ensure that in this new administration, we base our public policies on the soundest science; that we appoint scientific advisors based on their credentials and experience, not their politics or ideology; and that we are open and honest with the American people about the science behind our decisions."

Will Pres Obama now give a thumbs-up to a global climate treaty that will hamstring America's economic recovery---and surrender our nation's sovereignty to an international governing body---that's based-on extremely-questionable science?

Obama Science Czar John Holdren is directly involved in CRU’s unfolding Climategate scandal. In fact, according to files released by a CEU hacker or whistleblower, Holdren is involved in what Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Canadian climatologist Dr. Tim Ball terms “a truculent and nasty manner that provides a brief demonstration of his lack of understanding, commitment on faith and willingness to ridicule and bully people”.
