Let’s Not Talk About The Weather

I read the news today, oh boy.

Raw Story tells us…

 

According to the Washington Post, the EPA has given veto power over grants and awards to John Konkus, who goes by the title of Deputy Associate Administrator for Public Affairs.

And who is this Konkus?

Prior to serving in the EPA’s pubic affairs office, Konkus served as President Donald Trump’s Leon County, Florida, campaign chairman and as a political consultant for hire.

The Post notes that the EPA doles out hundreds of millions of dollars in funding and that those dollars are, in essence, only given with the approval of Konkus now.

Sweet Jeebus, the guy evaluating research grant applications for EPA is NOT a scientist? He’s a political appointee? Well, how bad could it be?

Konkus has reportedly told staffers that he is empowered to look for “the double C-word” — climate change — and warned grant officers that they  not to be mentioned in funding solicitations.

So… the EPA will fund research grants as long as the research has nothing to do with protecting the environment? So what research will we get, Birds: Do They REALLY Fly South For Winter? and Why Do Trees Drop Leaves in Fall? Perhaps The Mystery of Ice, The Water That Is Hard.

    Ha! Well that’s easy. Just swap out the words climate change with Obamas deep state weather weapons and get all the research grant money you need. Done..
