The Environmental Protection Agency has directed two of its lawyers to makes changes to a YouTube video they posted that is critical of the Obama administration’s climate change policy.Under Obama rules, EPA employee Mr. Zabel loses the right to his own resume!
The agency, citing federal policies, told the two lawyers, Laurie Williams and Allan Zabel, who are married and based in San Francisco, that they could mention their E.P.A. affiliation only once; must remove language specifying Mr. Zabel’s expertise and their years of employment with the agency; and must remove an image of the agency’s office in San Francisco.
They have been told that if they do not edit the video to comply with the policy, they could face disciplinary action. [Emph. added]
Their video does not dispute anthropogenic global warming. Their argument is merely that cap-and-trade is an ineffective and counter-productive approach for dealing with CO2 emissions. The EPA attack on their video began after the Zabel and Williams published an op-ed on cap-and-tax in the Washington Post.
