U.S. Energy Department balks at Trump request for names on climate change

The U.S. Energy Department said on Tuesday it will not comply with a request from President-elect Donald Trump’s Energy Department transition team for the names of people who have worked on climate change and the professional society memberships of lab workers.

The response from the Energy Department could signal a rocky transition for the president-elect’s energy team and potential friction between the new leadership and the staffers who remain in place.

The memo sent to the Energy Department on Tuesday and reviewed by Reuters last week contains 74 questions including a request for a list of all department employees and contractors who attended the annual global climate talks hosted by the United Nations within the last five years.

Energy Department spokesman Eben Burnham-Snyder said Tuesday the department will not comply.

“Our career workforce, including our contractors and employees at our labs, comprise the backbone of (the Energy Department) and the important work our department does to benefit the American people,” Burnham-Snyder said.

    Time to get rid of the dept. of energy. It was formed to make us energy self sufficient and has been an abysmal failure. Thank you so much Jimmy Carter.

    Of course climate change is real.
    Let’s see: there’s winter and spring, then comes summer, and of course colorful fall. And during each of these, we get rain, sometimes snow, thunder and lightening, wind – lot’s a that, sometimes it’s even great for flying kites. Let’s not forget how it’s possible to walk and ice skate on bodies of water, and what about those long hot days of summer. Aren’t these simple called natural divisions: seasons.
    And they bring varying weather. Least I forget our global warming apologist’s, climate change.
    As for global warming; well, what can I say? Perhaps it has more to do with the casininity of its proponents prevailing psychological condition: e.g., their cretinism.
    Although without being snide, I guess the best way to explain it, is follow the money.
    I must admit, I’m just a deplorable. One of those who cling to their guns and Bible.
    And by the way, the Bible is replete with the truth about so called global warming and/or climate change or what ever they (the educated) come up with next.
    Simply put: it ain’t us who influence the weather.

    Is there a job anywhere, that employees can claim to “serve” the people and be more insulated from personal liability for the harm they cause those people?
    Perhaps when “Burnham Snyder” finds himself confronted by Secretary Perry on January 20, 2017, he will think of a better answer.

    OF COURSE THEY WILL NOT, BECAUSE IT ALL IS A BIG LIE TO MAKE SOME PEOPLE RICH AND GORE IS A RINGLEADER. CUT ALL FUNDS FROM THIS GROUP, THEY HAVE BLED THE TAX PAY TOO MUCH AND IT SHOULD STOP.

    IT IS A FACT THAT THE SUN IN MOVING AWAY FROM THE EARTH IN ITS CYCLE AND WE ARE NOW ENTERING INTO ANOTHER ICE AGE, OF COURSE THIS MAY TAKE 10 THOUSAND YEARS, OR MORE BUT IT HAS HAPPENED SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE ACCORDING TO SCIENCE.

    Thank you, Mr. Trump. We need to begin to ask for names and for proof of global warming. For too long we have the global warming/climate change advocates have been able to get away saying the science is settled without offering any specifics.

    The unwillingness of global warming advocates to disclose basic information such as names and research is a really good indication that global warming is nothing more than a scam foisted upon a gullible public.

      LOL…they can’t. The model they used was flawed.

    What is the Department of Energy going to do when Perry is in charge after Trump is President? This looks like an admission that there has been a one-sided, political approach to the so called “global warming” issue.

    • ricktenny

      They are going to say “oops”.

    Looks like Donald will have some more house cleaning to do.

  • Edith

    The Department of Energy actually believes they are a private corporation and not accountable to the American people. Wonder how they will all fare at their next places of employment.

    • justinwachin

      Fire them all, Donald. Fire them all.

  • ARJAY

    Might there be an “attitude adjustment” AFTER Trump is PRESIDENT?!
