Like so many other .gov agencies, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration has been caught manipulating and manufacturing data to support their fanatical left wing positions while being a more than willing accomplice to aid their compatriots in enacting legislature through fabricated (in this case environmental) data. Finally, these policies are enforced by agencies such as the EPA using administrative actions/regulations disguised as laws, etc. This is all smoke and mirrors to justify their existence and promote a leftist agenda. This is another prime example of corrupt tyranny where the final results are over regulation, imposition of unconstitutional taxes through permits, fee, licenses, etc. The end game of these sorts of tactics discourages new businesses, hampers and sometimes destroys existing businesses, raises the cost of goods and services to the consumer, etc. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the fact that taxpayers are paying the bill that subsidizes this .gov sadism.
