I heard today that North Carolina Congressman Brad Miller is looking into the claims of widespread scientific suppression by the White House. I wrote about all the details earlier today on the Huffington Post.
Basically, he is looking for other scientists (like James Hansen) who have had their views politically suppressed. I know a lot of scientists read my blog, and I know of a few who have talked to me privately on this issue. So this is a call to all of you: if you are a government-supported scientist, and you know of anything like this, contact Rep. Miller’s legislative assistant Heather Parsons at heather.parsons "at" mail.house.gov, or Dan Pearson of the Democratic staff of the Science Committee at dan.pearson "at" mail.house.gov.
