Biden climate official sanctioned by science body; accused of putting ‘thumb on the scales for friends and family,’ using outdated data in paper

Blaze:

On August 16, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) announced it would bar White House climate official Jane Lubchenco from participating in its publications and activities for five years.

This announcement comes months after House Reps. Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), Stephanie Bice (R-Okla.) and Jay Obernolte (R-Calif.) wrote to President Joe Biden suggesting that Lubchenco’s actions “may violate the Administration’s principles of scientific integrity,” making “her current leadership role very troubling.”

According to Axios, the NAS reiterated that Lubchenco violated its code of conduct.

Having edited a paper entitled, “A global network of marine protected areas for food,” written by her brother-in-law Steven Gaines (with whom she had collaborated several times previously), she violated the science body’s conflict-of-interest policy.

Retraction Watch reported that in April, University of Hull marine scientist Magnus Johnson wrote to the editor of the NAS’ official journal, noting Lubchenco’s family relationship with Gaines: “It seems a little dubious to have a paper edited by an author who is closely aligned with authors on it? I know it can be tricky to find true independence in the upper layers of international science but surely Dr Lubchenko [sic] should have at least declared an interest?” more here

  1. The duped believe the charlatans in gubmint can magically “control” the climate. Spend trillions, abuse taxpayers, promote fake science, censure skeptics, all in the name of “controlling” c̶l̶i̶m̶a̶t̶e̶ ̶c̶h̶a̶n̶g̶e̶ the unwashed masses. Even when the the duped/fools are faced head on with the fabrication, they fall for it every time.

  3. In a sane society this piece of shit would have absolutely no future professional credibility whatsoever, not that she ever had any legitimate credibility to begin with, but as it stands it doesn’t mean spit.

  6. The only real news here is that a democrat-leftist-progressive actually received some consequences for her actions. It will be interesting to she if really serves the full 5 year ban. She, of course, should immediately be fired from all government work but mostly will not.
