Consensus? As Long as You Agree With Me

delawareonline ¦ State distances itself from climatologist

Gov. Ruth Ann Minner has directed Delaware’s state climatologist to stop using his title in public statements on climate change, citing a clash of views on global warming and confusion over the position’s ties to the administration.

Minner, who made the directive in a letter, described the move as a way to “clarify” the role of David R. Legates, a prominent skeptic of views that human activities are warming the planet and triggering climate shifts.

What’s this? You put a guy in charge who doesn’t toe your laychick’s line?

“Your views on climate change, as I understand them, are not aligned with those of my administration,” Minner wrote.

His role, Missy, to “clarify,” is to be a frickin’ scientist, not your personal parrot, when it comes to something you have no personal, professional background discussing–or deciding about–without talking to this exact damn guy.
