Why aren’t “unmuzzled” federal scientists talking to Media Party about Trudeau’s job cuts?

Brian LilleyArchive

You know how we heard for years that Harper hated scientists? Well, we’re starting to hear the truth thanks to actual data that lays out the numbers and it doesn’t quite fit the narrative.

Remember how we also heard that Harper was muzzling scientists, especially those at Environment Canada? Presumably the muzzles are off, but it doesn’t seem like anyone wants to talk.

That’s a bit surprising considering that according to reports, Harper had more scientists on the payroll than Trudeau does now.

This is all a bit rich when recalling the constant narrative from the Media Party about Harper not liking scientists and Trudeau wanting fact-based scientific decision making.

Just another case of the Media Party not looking beyond the narrative to find the truth.

I get my climate change expertise from Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio. David Suzuki will also do in a pinch. Anyone else and I simply don’t believe them because they get their money from climate changers who only dish out hocus pocus science.

Bring on Lenny. Haven’t seen him in a while. Al is on rest break from a gruelling and inconvenient campaign to explain why the arctic ice cap is growing.

“It makes sense that since they changed the name to ‘Environment And Climate Change Canada’ that they would fire some scientists. They wouldn’t want any facts to get in the way of their ideology. I guess you have to have certain conclusions to keep your job. Who needs real science when you are making it up as you go along. "

Do you have … uh … any evidence of this? Or is this more of a generic anti-intellectual froth?

Hi Keith,

I agree with you about 90%!
However, you could and should clean up your vocabulary a touch"

Stupid fucking Canadians chose a drama teacher over a seasoned economist.

This is how fucking dumb Canadians are.

Now Canada is being financial raped by this fuckwad Trudeau – the son of a quasi prostitute.

And now we are surprised. Really Canada, grow up.

You choose white trash to run Ottawa and you get what you choose.

Kelvin – you know what you’ll get – just a load of crap about how much of a dissident you are. Facts are irrelevant here. Maybe if some of these brain “lightened” people would look into the HARRP Project – they mite fulfill their self desired intent. Doubt it though – they are entitled to be stupid.

3000+ scientists at Environment Canada, and they still can’t get the weather forecast right more than 24 hours out. Not only that, but they’ll tell you with a straight face what the climate will be like in 20, 50, or 100 years, and expect you to ante up even more tax money. It’s a great career, meteorology – you can screw up every day of your life and no one ever bats an eye.

Endless doublespeak and the sad part is the CBC watching public believes all of it.

Honestly,,, mike mann needs to set you all straight here. Hopefully i didnt offend him when i said,“straight”.
He is fighting some demons and will lash out with ad hominem attacks.

Liza Rosie – to accept their severance payments, they would have to sign something saying that they won’t disclose anything. The smart ones would refuse to sign, and hire a lawyer.

Bravo Zulu – that’s what I think too! Maybe we need to hook them all up to lie detectors.

I want to know what those scientists who have been let go have to say, if they will speak. Being honest could cost them their next job since funding only goes to those who follow the ‘supreme huskers’ party line.

Peter Babich commented – “Environment is everything around you. And Climate change is inevitable”

What we witness is “weather” archeologists and your great great grand children will see “cimate change” and you know what – your progeny will be wonder what all the fuss was about.

Interesting development, but expected. When you suffer under a technocratic-kleptocrat regime, science is only needed to rubber stamp crisis narratives and the junk solutions the regime needs to fill its pockets and remove your freedoms.

After the junk science narratives are established, you don’t want real science nosing around and finding new facts that destroy the established klepto-narratives.

Prince selfie (the PM in name only) rules over an ideological agenda based in disputed science – the next 4 years we will watch this dogmatic imbecile destroy our economy and security to placate his ego and his sectarian mythologies.

Can anyone guess which side of the warming debate the scientists being let go of at Environment Canada are on? Just sayin’.

Well…the “scientists” have learned the reality of “They first came for…then came for me.”

These useful idiots were not scientists. Hope they enjoy they enjoy the unemployment line with the real workers they railed against. Except the ones who know how to work will be the first to find it. Take that unemployed bureaucratic “scientist”.

Demand the truth from these globalists puppets, everyone should become a citizen journalist. Don’t try to interview a numbskull politician, instead try to interview the media themselves and ask them why they always give the lefties a pass and then post it on YouTube.
