Dealing With Science By Ignoring It

House Science Committee Oversight Democrats Request Hearing on White House's "Ignore" Science Memorandum, House Science Committee Democrats

"The suggestion to "ignore" science as one policy option regarding climate change was suggested in a memo prepared for senior White House and federal agency officials last fall by Michael Catanzaro, former Special Assistant to the President for Domestic Energy and Environmental Policy, according to a recent story in the Washington Post. Mr. Catanzaro, who joined the Trump Administration in 2017 from the CGCN Group, where he was a lobbyist for the oil and gas industry returned to CGCN in April 2018. However, the Members pointed out in the letter to Chairman Abraham, "the implications of his 'ignore science' memo still warrant a thorough review and appropriate oversight from the Science Committee - it speaks volumes as to how this Administration handles scientific evidence."
