The Interior Department clamps down on science, only projects that fit Trump's 'priorities' allowed By Mark Sumner - Wednesday Jan 10, 2018 https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/1/10/1731167/-The-Interior-Department-clamps-down-on-science-only-projects-that-fit-Trump-s-priorities-allowed The Interior Department has introduced a new filter for research grants. Rather than evaluating grants over the rigor of their procedures or the potential importance of their results, the Ryan Zinke-headed department will now look for something they value much more highly—proposals that support Trump’s positions. The Interior Department has adopted a new screening process for the discretionary grants it makes to outside groups, instructing staff to ensure those awards “promote the priorities" of the Trump administration. Proposals are to be checked against a list of priorities created by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. That list includes “Utilizing our natural resources." and “Generating additional revenues." Zinke’s list also calls for weakening the Endangered Species Act and chopping regulations on companies that want to extract coal, uranium, timber—and every ounce of natural environment— from federal lands.Totalitarian is as totalitarian does.
