Transparency Group Sues Biden White House Over “Climate Disinformation” Records

Government transparency group Energy Policy Advocates (EPA) filed suit on Thursday against the Biden White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy’s refusal to produce correspondence pertaining to one of an increasing number of initiatives to combat opposition to the administration’s political agenda as “disinformation.”

Specifically, EPA argued:

“The request sought certain described correspondence of two named officials, Eric Lander and Jane Lubchenco, over an eight-week period of time, on any email account used at any time for work-related correspondence, that was sent to one or more of six or five named outside parties, respectively. This request pertained to an OSTP “event on countering climate change denial and delay” in which the Office brought in political activists to discuss, e.g., social science which might explain political opposition to their demands. See, e.g., Maxine Joselow, “White House schedules first event on countering climate change denial and delay,” Washington Post, February 24, 2022. …

The requested records will inform the public of high-profile ethics revelations at OSTP and media coverage thereof, and also the genesis of a tendentious event and campaign out of OSTP. The described meeting seeking to counter political opposition, one of many Biden administration initiatives seeking to do so by styling opposition as “disinformation” (“deliberate disinformation campaigns that are as insidious as they are invidious”,, was the subject of substantial national and international media coverage.

The public deserves to know, without further delay, the genesis of the aforementioned tendentious effort.”

EPA’s complaint also noted that the group sought the described emails with outside activists on any email account, citing:

“in this request that one of the two officials, Ms. Lubchenco, had been shown during a prior stint as a political appointee in a different agency during a previous administration to have continued to use her previous employer’s “.edu” email account for official federal work-related correspondence, and also detailed Defendant’s own history, during that same administration, of employees having been found to engage in the practice of using non-official email accounts for work-related correspondence.”

  • Just what every American should already know, the United States is run by American Oligarchs. Everything I strongly believed in, FBI, DOJ, CIA, the media, education system, are politically compromised. The powers that be didn’t have to steal the election, Zuckerbucks bought it for 400 million in the right places and groups. He got his Christmas turkey early November for a bargain. The country is going down the tube and only a handful of good people are trying to stop it. Police enforcement is minimal as if they try doing their job they are denounced, de funded and may be prosecuted, sued, lose everything, and imprisoned. People are walking out of stores with stolen goods and no one is even stopping them. As a result of the uninhibited rioting with calls by government officials for non interference, citizens have purchased firearms and ammunition in record numbers, people who previously never considered owning them. And now the same officials are calling for gun control? Measures that will do little for real school safety?
    The only thing that has kept this country safe and free has been it’s economic might and the United States Constitution. When either of those those fail we will be in the fourth world category. I currently have no confidence in the majority of those who are in charge of protecting it.
