Tell Trump’s science adviser: do your job!

President Trump clearly doesn’t understand, or want to understand, the existential threat climate change poses to our country and planet. Republican leadership and fossil fuel lobbyists are complicit in a decades-long con game to deceive the American people on the hard truth of global warming.

Kelvin Droegemeier's job as a scientific adviser is to present the administration with accurate information and data. If he is not correcting the misinformation when his boss states that winter storms somehow prove climate change is a hoax, then he is NOT doing his job.

The climate crisis is scientifically proven to be driven by humanity and our industries increasing our carbon footprint. The scientific consensus is clear. Droegemeier's job is to tell the president exactly what meaningful action to solve this crisis would look like. We need a massive sea change in policy to avoid calamity.

He must do his job to gather and present accurate data on climate change. If he doesn't, he will be just one more cog in the system orchestrating a deception the likes of which this nation has not seen since big tobacco.

    I am submitting this public comment in opposition to NOAA’s proposed “streamlining” of the federal consistency process under the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA).


    The federal consistency determination under the CZMA has long provided an essential partnership opportunity among coastal states, affected local governments, and federal agencies proposing offshore oil and gas drilling, seismic air gun petroleum exploration, and renewable energy projects. States with a federally-approved Coastal Zone Management Plan, acting in concert with and on behalf of their coastal communities, hold a legitimate role in determining whether a range of activities associated with federal offshore drilling and other proposed major federal actions are consistent – or inconsistent – with the state’s Coastal Plan.


    I am deeply concerned that the unwarranted removal or weakening of CZMA consistency authority could leave a coastal state virtually defenseless in the face of federal offshore drilling proposals and related decisions leading up to the implementation of an Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) offshore oil and gas lease sale, an OCS Plan of Exploration, an OCS Plan of Development and Production, or federal permits for adjacent seismic air gun survey programs.


    Absent the maintenance of a state’s well-established right to make an effective federal consistency finding, the subsequent necessary orderly planning to facilitate transportation of any petroleum via tanker, barge, or pipeline, would instead be dictated by federal agencies, rather than continuing to emerge as decisions that are currently co-managed in consultation with affected local governments and coastal states.


    Thus, I oppose this proposed rule.

    This is an outrageous theft of States rights and all from the Republicans who have touted those very rights.

    Moreover it is an assault on Tourism that these states rely on for jobs.

    The disregard for the health of our oceans and sea food is just stupid.

    Yet another move to destroy America
