House Science Committee Subpoenas NOAA
On October 13, 2015, the
House Committee on Science, Space and Technology
issued a subpoena seeking all documents and
communications related to a NOAA study refuting
the notion of a global warming "hiatus." The American
Meteorological Society has written an open
letter to Chairman Lamar Smith, expressing concern
over this action. It reads:
"Singling out specific research studies, and
implicitly questioning the integrity of the
researchers conducting those studies, can be
viewed as a form of intimidation that could deter
scientists from freely carrying out research on
important national challenges."
