Former NOAA chief fears for ‘very future of our democracy’ if scientists are ‘intimidated’ under Donald Trump

An event organised by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) at the annual meeting saw emotions run high as some people in the crowd compared Mr Trump to the Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini and his administration to the Nazis in 1930s Germany.

    “…This ‘gag order’ was described by Professor Barbara Schaal, president of the AAAS, as “chilling” when she opened the meeting…”

    Where was the USC when scientists were being intimidated and fired for questioning climate change ‘theory’? These guys aren’t real scientists, they’re dogmacrats.

    the Union of Concerned Propagandists are most certainly not scientists

    The “former NOAA chief witchdoctor” should be charged with fraud and requested to surrender his passport for the duration or be kept in jail pending trial.
