The Left’s War on Science
Climatologist George Taylor is being stripped of his title as Oregon’s State Climatologist because he is not convinced that global warming is due entirely to man.
In the face of evidence agreed upon by hundreds of climate scientists, George Taylor holds firm. He does not believe human activities are the main cause of global climate change.
Taylor also holds a unique title: State Climatologist.
“Most of the climate changes we have seen up until now have been a result of natural variations,” Taylor asserts.
Taylor has held the title of “state climatologist” since 1991 when the legislature created a state climate office at OSU The university created the job title, not the state. His opinions conflict not only with many other scientists, but with the state of Oregon’s policies.
So the governor wants to take that title from Taylor and make it a position that he would appoint. In an exclusive interview with KGW-TV, Governor Ted Kulongoski confirmed he wants to take that title from Taylor.
Because Taylor won’t sing the same tune as the Governor of the state of Oregon Taylor will be stripped of his title so that the Governor can appoint somebody who will say what he wants. I guess Ted Kulongoski didn’t get the memo that only Republicans are supposed to engage in this kind of smarmy tactic.
Update: I’ve changed the first sentence which indicated that Taylor was being removed from his position at OSU which he isn’t. He is being stripped of his title though.
