Of Course: Obama's White House Pressured IPCC to Rewrite Report on Costs of Climate Change Mitigation Efforts, Demanding They Take Into Account Alleged "Co-Benefits" of Such Mitigation

That the Science is Politicized is actually settled.

U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming.

Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures.

...

“The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action,” U.S. officials wrote in a submission to the UN, according to a document obtained by Bloomberg. They said including only one side of the equation “unnecessarily skews the information.”

...

State Department officials are pressing to factor in improvements to public health and lower energy costs from increased efficiency that would happen if fossil fuels were limited. Those would offset the price to be paid for switching over to cleaner forms of energy such as wind and solar and paring back on lower-cost fuels such as coal.

Of course. We all know that when you convert from a lower-cost, privately-operated fuel industry to a higher-cost, government-subsidized-and-mandated one, you "increase efficiency." Always. It's like a Rule of Economics.

So of course you should figure this Fake Factor into your math and then claim it's "Science."

The last time the Obama Administration lied to the public about the actual costs of a major socialist program it all worked out so swimmingly that the Health and Human Services Secretary got rewarded with a Victory Resignation.

Of course, Obama's chief contribution to American Democracy is changing the numbers so that people are incapable of making informed decisions about the efficacy of government, and are thus unable to hold government accountable.

Via Weasel Zippers and Breitbart.


The Most Transparent Administration In History*

* Based upon our own calculations of transparency, which have been recalibrated to take into effect the increased efficiency that occurs when a government is disburdened from honestly reporting on its performance.

Seriously, it frees government up so much. And that's what you want-- a government free to live its life to the fullest, without consequences, without regret.

Common Core Math:

"What you have to do is subtract the cost of doing nothing from the costs of mitigation then subtract how it makes you feel divided by racism to get the correct figures."
