Such moralizing would be funny were it not for the chilling effect it is bound to have in an agency already mired in group think. …
Ms. Jewel’s anti-’denier’ sermonizing is morally vacuous. It will, however, discourage candor and independent thought in an important and powerful agency.
Only a few months on the job and Jewell already behaves like a self-righteous bully. A good swift dose of congressional oversight is in order. It might just keep the thought police from harassing climate dissenters at DOI.
Grist offers no counter-argument, resorting to the usual ad hominem (GW.Org is a "right wing" "denier blog," hence it must be wrong).
