Office Of Science And Technology Taking Out The Science


A GOVERNMENT
WATCHDOG GROUP NOTICED A SURPRISING CHANGE TO THE MISSION
STATEMENT FOR AN ORGANIZATION IN THE EPA. IT IS ONE THAT MIGHT COME WITH CONSEQUENCES. YOU WILL
SEE THE ORIGINAL MISSION STATEMENT ON THE LEFT. THE NEW
ONE IS ON THE RIGHT. THE TOP PART SAYS THE OST, OFFICE OF
SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DEVELOPING SOUND
SCIENCE-BASED STANDARDS. YOU WILL NOTICE ON THE RIGHT-HAND
SIDE, THE NEW SITE, THERE ARE NO REFERENCES TO SCIENCE. THE
CHANGE MAY SOUND GOOD, BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN THE SAME THING. THEY HAVE BEEN IN CHARGE OF DEVELOPING CLEAN WATER STANDARDS FOR STATES. IF THIS IS THE
APPROACH THEY WILL TAKE FOR THE OST, THERE IS A MAJOR DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN SCIENCE-BASED STANDARDS AND ECONOMICALLY ACHIEVABLE STANDARDS. ONE TAKES WHAT
SCIENTISTS SAY AND DIRECTS THE AGENCY TO MAKE SURE WE ARE
COMPORTED WITH IT. THE OTHER SAYS WE CAN INSTALL A THING,
WILL THIS NOT HARM BUSINESSES TOO MUCH? THIS IS A DIFFERENT
STANCE FOR THE EPA TO TAKE. IT IS CALLED THE OFFICE OF
SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, AND THEY TOOK OUT THE PART ABOUT SCIENCE. THEY LOVE TECHNOLOGY. SECOND OF ALL WHEN THEY SAY
TECHNOLOGICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY VIABLE, WHAT THEY ARE SAYING IS
WE ARE GOING TO MAKE DECISIONS ON WHETHER OR NOT WE WILL DO THESE BASED ON WHETHER WE THINK
IT IS ECONOMICALLY VIABLE FOR THE COMPANIES. THAT LEADS TO
POINT NUMBER THREE, PRUITT WHO IS NOW HEAD OF THE EPA COMES AND
GIVES A SPEECH TO THE STAFF. HE DOES NOT MENTION PUBLIC HEALTH ONCE. THIS IS THE ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION AGENCY AND CHARGED WITH PROTECTING THE PUBLIC HEALTH. THEN HE TALKS ABOUT
STAKEHOLDERS. THAT MAKES SENSE. IF YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF AN AGENCY ABOUT PUBLIC-
AND THERE ARE OTHER STAKEHOLDERS AS WELL. AMONG THE STAKEHOLDERS LISTED HE
DID NOT INCLUDE ENVIRONMENTALISTS. SOON THEY WILL REMOVE THE
WORD ENVIRONMENTAL. SO YOU UNDERSTAND THE
PRIORITIES NOW. HOW MANY TIMES DID WE TELL YOU GUYS THEY DON’T
LIKE SCIENCE. SCIENCE INVOLVES FACTS, THEY LIKE ALTERNATIVE FACTS. FACTS ARE BOTHERSOME TO
THEM. FACTS ARE CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL. WHEN THE FACTS ARE
INCONVENIENT, THEY LEAVE THEM OUT. IF YOU ARE AN ANTI-SCIENCE
BABOON AND YOU THINK YOU DON’T LIKE SCIENCE, GREAT, VOTE
REPUBLICAN THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. IF YOU LIKE SCIENCE, THE
REPUBLICAN PARTY IS NOT FOR YOU. THEY JUST TOLD YOU. THEY
LITERALLY TOOK OUT SCIENCE FROM THE OFFICE
OF SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY.

  • Trump believes Science was a ruse made by the Chinese Government.

  • EPA = Economic Protection Agency?

  • Trump voters and supporters, I am not trying to pick a fight. What do you think this Administration is going to do for you? The Democrats are FAR from perfect, but this villainy right here, anti-freedoms, anti-science and tech, anti-environment, massive conflicts of interests in business ties( Secretary of State), religious nuts. We now have incompetent heads of education, EPA, Energy dept , House and Urban Development; A very questionable former banker in charge of Treasury Dept, an AG who needs to do more explaining of his long shady past. The disorganization of the white house staff and press speakers.

    There were other options in that voting booth, Dr. Stein. A Breitbart leader as Chief Strategist to Trump: progranda lunatic media. Vice Pres. Pence is boring; for your information, some of those Republican senators and representatives like how he is about to make times harder for the country, they are like-minded just like Trump just not boneheaded like he is and more discrete about their sinister plans.

  • this is how republicans how to we stay in office and the white house for more then 4 or 8 years cut science and do make america dumb again not great again and start the war on facts

  • So the Department of Environmental is no longer environmental? #welcometolemmingslive

  • Keep America Dumb! I mean Keep Beach City Weird!

  • Plot twist, terrorist kill everyone in trump's administration.

  • If America Recieved a biological attack you're all fucked

  • The Republican party has more problems with science than the Catholic Church these days.

  • I witnessed before my eyes a multinational drilling company deleted their environmental standards. Deleted. As in, It no longer exists. And the safety guy who announced the change was like "I'm sure they replaced it with something". He never found out what they replaced it with

  • new business for unstable orange: £rump water.

  • Can we just conclude that the Republican Party is nothing more than a rich man's cult?

  • russia in no way is affected by ruined environment of America.

  • I'm going to have to stop watching…the way things are becoming I'm constantly sick to my stomach…

  • What has department of environmental done for me lately?.

  • Their agenda couldn't be clearer.

  • Back in the 1400s the Ottoman empire had a head religious cleric decided to slow down the advancement of science because they were getting away from the true base of religion. Well they are no longer around and hat is because that pause gave other nations the time of catch-up and pass them.

  • Maybe they should call it the "Economic Protection Agency" now instead.

  • They should change the name to the Lobbyist Protection Agency. Our poor endangered Lobbyists don't have enough power to do whatever they want.

  • Who needs science and technology when we have clean coal mines and oil.

  • Why can't I see the comments

  • Science being removed is ominous.

  • Press the button! The economically and technologically achievable performance standards button!
    Yeah screw my house!

  • Me not like science. Me like baby beezus and proe-liff.

  • There is no technology without science

  • Liberals are the science deniers. PC culture restricts biological research.

  • Trump is an early april fools gift from lucifer. I'm not a hater, but Lord, I hate trump to my core. I guess we earned this curse. Hope we learn from it. I've attempted conversations with science and climate change deniers. They wear their ignorance with pride. It is so bizarre.

  • No Science = No Nuclear Weapons

    You hate 'em but you love 'em.
    What. A. Bloody. Hypocrite.

  • SAD 😢

  • In other words, run your water through a coffee filter before you drink it.

  • he an egotistical idiot, the republicans are greedy idiotic bastard, and the suporters are just brainless because they belive in those idiots.

  • Hey West Virginia remember when you couldn't drink your water,it's coming again.Aren't you glad you voted for Trump..

  • Sonuva BITCH………

    These people are the goddamn WORST!!!!!

  • the us is going to look like bejing by the end of trumps term… everyone will have to wear face marsks to avoid the smog

  • I also think they mean to cut "waste." I put "waste" in quotes because they have zero understanding of the value of some research. I remember an interview where Palin was shitting on "wasteful" studies "about fruit flies" when running for VP. I laughed so hard when I first heard that dumb bitch's comments. All of my coworkers (I work in an evolutionary bio lab at a top 20 uni) also thought it was hilarious. (The fruit fly is a model organism in genetics, i.e. EXTREMELY important.)

  • oh for crying out loud…please explain to me how can someone by proud of this?

  • I hope Trump lives a very long time.

  • I hope Trump lives a very long time.

  • This whole government is anti-science, anti-education, anti-diplomacy, anti-fair labour, anti-clean air and water, anti-women's reproductive rights, anti-healthcare, anti-diversity, anti-animal rights, etc. There is only one thing they aren't against – money for themselves and their donors. This is, by far, the most crass, corrupt, anti-democratic government in American history.

  • Do you want me to increase the volume of your bumper segments? It's petty damn easy and makes the production more professional.

  • Who care about public health…. definitely not Republicans.

  • Say it RIGHT! It's The Department of Environment!

  • It's really interesting. The US is going back a decade per week. That'll be tough to recover.

  • The Office of Voodoo and Polution

  • Simple. Science : Enemy no1 of Christian Republicans.
    How dare science question the Bible after all.

  • Would anyone be surprised if at some point came out with a "rules of acquisition"? They are so much like the Ferengi it's not even funny.

  • "when science is inconvenient leave it out" historians have been doing this same thing with history for years how about when anything truth is inconvenient it became false #1984

  • I guess now Flynt water is safe.

  • creationist science dinosaurs and humans lived together

  • Republicans take away clean air and water, then take away healthcare to treat people that suffer as a result. America, wake up!!!

  • it's going to be great, their going to get rid of all those cumbersome and inconvenient regulations, that protect the public from getting poisoned by all those trustworthy corporations, but hey, you'll all have access to the greatest healthcare system in the world!! What was that? You can't pay for it! You need to prioritize, just sell everything you own, put up your kids for adoption and get rid of those luxuries, like eating, you lazy, entitlement leeches, what did you think!! That the government is here to serve you??? Enjoy your freedom America, that is if you can afford it suckers!!!!

  • The CPA, the Corporate Protection Agency

  • Liberals deny science on a daily basis. If you say a person has a penis and that makes them a male, you WILL be surprised by the lack of science some of them come up with.

  • I like that the other statement takes economic feasibility within their process. Liberals pass regulations regardless of people can pay for it or lose their jobs because of such regs.

  • obviously it's just the economic protection agency. and when corrupt politicians say the economy they mean shareholders and banks and donors

  • Technology is the PRACTICAL APPLICATION of SCIENCE!!!!

    Science is simply the study and understanding-of nature….period. Engineering applies scientific knowledge (understanding of nature) into new technology for things we use….everyday.

    Without new science discoveries, knowledge and deeper understanding of nature, there is no new technology.

  • They took out science because they can't understand it. Disparity of wealth has lead to disparity of capacity in the opposite direction. Wealthy people, like Trump, no longer have the capacity to comprehend basic science, so they can't very well use it. There is now a negative correlation between wealth and intelligence.

  • No more science, huh. I feel bad for American kids, getting less and less education, and America falling into another dark age.

  • America rose to prominence on the grounds that it was the most technologically advanced society, little boy and fat man proved it to the world and ended the world war. So nations can understand what is happening to america when you start basing technological advancement on economic conservatism.
    I think Russia and China are quite thankful for trump and evangelicals.

  • MAKE AMERICA STUPID AGAIN!

  • Republican party is probably the most conceptually evil (and dumb) entity on earth!

  • I guess we can assume the same will be done for the Department of Energy.

  • Communist China is going to achieve coal and oil independence before everybody else, which means having no interest in the Middle East, and hopefully improving their air quality.

  • Hating science/reading?..that's EXACTLY what put Europe's failed Barbarian state into the dark ages. I see Trump is on schedule with turning America into Europe with his broad-sweeping acts of ignorance. He, his voters (closeted or no), nor his cabinet have no EXPERIENCE, nor BACKGROUND in building a productive, progressive society anywhere on Earth. Show me where on the map have his ilk created anything but money trails for their closest. They've only mastered how to implement their Neanderthal, Cave Barabarian chaos. I hate, and wish death upon anybody on their side DAILY! Alternative facts? Immigrant-slave falsities recklessly taught to children? Anger about the "Get Out" movie?..The Truth-hatred is RAMPANT in 2017 with these cave rhesus' roaming the States, sitting in positions of influence, conjuring struggle-legislation to spill into our everyday lives. What a pitiful gene pool America continues to choose for President's.

    P

  • Alternative Science

  • Conservatives/Republicans dont notice climate change because when you live your life shoulder deep in your own ass there are no climate changes.

  • They think they will be able to get rid of science but they will encounter themselves with a "BIG WALL" , because science is everywhere and needed for almost everything.

  • It'll be USA,inc. if trump has his way

  • the republican motto = whats in it for me ?

  • Start collecting rain water and stocking up bottled water

  • They're brains are infected with a parasite – eating out logic – these people are truly dis-eased!

  • Trump voters won't care about any of this because they won the election, that's all that mattered to them. The disaster that follows will probably be blamed on the person that takes over after trump. Typical delusion we've learned to expect

  • If you say you love science but reject evolution and climate change–you're fooling yourself.

  • DUMP has planned to spend 1 billion dollars researching why his small hands are actually bigger than everyone's on earth

  • 1984 – idiocracy its all happening lol. Its not even subtle. They just remove the word science. lol. 'Critical thunking be the DEVIL!'

  • as an amerikan i feel so embarrassed

  • Cenk does a remarkable "Adam Chester" at 3:15. Impressive.

  • Why do Americans accept this??

  • I find it odd tyt is for science when it fits their deluded narrative but try to say something about gender and sexuality with science to back it up, no it's about feelings then.

  • people who dont like or believe science should be banned from using anything developed due to science…so no healthcare/medicine/cars/phones/tv….let them live like cavemen

  • what a joke

  • Thank you Cenk, for continuing to expose the rot.

  • The poorly kept GOP 'secret' is out. The Republican Party under Trump is being stripped bare to reveal what Independents and Liberals have been voicing more and more over recent decades; that CONSERVATIVES ARE STUPID AND ARE BATTLING TO ENFORCE THEIR SELF-IMPOSED IDIOCY UPON THE ENTIRE NATION!! This is an act of war against reason. Do liberals, who value reason and science stand by, or do we begin using the technology of science (such as hacking) to fight back? It is getting to the point where we have no choice. Stand by for the revolution.

  • At this rate in 4 years, they'll be burning scientists for witchcraft.

  • Facts don't matter: Jesus is coming back to save us so it really doesn't matter what decisions we make.  If you're one of the nonbelievers who is left behind in a toxic environment, well, guess you should have prayed harder! says the Republican.  If your children die in agony choking on toxic air, at least their eternal souls are happy with Jesus.

  • Oooh see, the thing is that you have a definition of science that doesn't correlate to America's agenda. Like eliminating the XY chromosomes that predicates genders and climate change, that science is problematic and detrimental to our America's agenda, heh.

  • The southern states already get the worst scores in science, the whole of America is now going to fall behind the rest of the world. The rest of us always wanted to see America lose its number 1 status, now it is happening.

  • I say this to my stupid father all the time. He's always saying how science is wrong and most scientists are stupid and I tell him if you believe that so much then stop driving a car, stop going to the doctors, stop using a cell phone, stop living in a house, stop all of it because that's all here thanks to science.

  • I wonder if we will see a rise in eco terrorism

  • Any Trumptards watching this and doesn't get they've made a huge mistake should be euthanized

  • Depletion of the ozone layer is only a small part of what climate change is about. It's about the greenhouse effect. More greenhouse gas, mainly CO2, traps in more heat.

  • lmao man…. I'm glad I'm not American, laughing stock of the world

  • You guys are in deep ^*%#. Can't wait for the "bugger we're up against something natural that's destroying our country so we'd better find someone to dig us out of this hole we're in. What do you mean there are no scientists left?"
    Even the uneducated buffoons like Trump can just watch Hollywood movies to know that it's scientists that come up with the big plans to save you from Ebola, bird flu, swine flu, massive snow storm type conditions, city destroying tsunamis…

  • Neil DeGrasse Tyson for President!!!   🙂

  • We replaced science with Jesus. Something Republicans have always dreamed of doing.

  • wtf does economically feasible mean? you either want to do something and are going to do it, or you do not want to do it and you are not going to do it. the usa military budget is about 650 billion usd per year, and that is only what the pentagon is ready to admit. what sort of goals could you consider unreachable or economically not feasible with 650 billion usd per year at your disposal?

    it is simple, you either want to invest effort and money into buildings things, or you want to invest money and effort into destroying things. the holy temple of science today is the cern large hadron collider. the cost of this project is estimated at about 4,5 billion usd, which is the same as 1 nimtz class aircraft carrier (without the jets). the usa has 10 of these carriers, but the entire planet has only 1 cern. even within the retarded economic system this world runs on, almost nothing is impossible. now if you throw the whole worthless paper with imaginary value added to it idea out the window and realize that you are only limited by things you dont know and resources you dont have, exactly what is not economically feasible? the only time you hear the economical feasibility question raised is when something worth doing needs to be done. nobody ever asks if it is economically feasible to invade vietnam or iraq.

  • like a rich person trump has his head in the sand…. He does not want to know the truth about any thing he does not like – what with fake news and his alternative truth…. and the way he is trying to control the news and what is said by the media – he does not have to face the real facts. What he and his ass mates are doing to the environment is hurting anyone. I wonder if it was his children or his grandchildren being hurt by this companies would he change his mind…. I do not think so – unless it made his beloved daughter ugly or put her life in harms ways…… then and only then would he cry to change it – but then it would be done behind close doors.

    The only things trump cares about is money – getting off – and how hot his daughters body is – how much people love him even when it is in this mind only – how smart he thinks he is and bulling others.

  • Science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.

  • One year later and Trumps killing it. Boring to the max😂😂😂🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸MAGA🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸🌞🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️
