Climate change expert sentenced to 32 months for fraud, says lying was a ‘rush’ – NBC News

December 24, 2016

I guess climate science isn’t settled after all.  It seems the guy who thougth businesses were greedy was also the same guy who got an addictive rush from defrauding the government.  Now THERE is a lesson.. if we will learn it. RM

“The EPA’s leading expert on climate change was also the agencies highest paid employee.  John Beale was sentenced to 32 months in federal prison for lying to his bosses and saying he was a CIA spy.  He wasn’t. Beale perpetrated his fraud largely by failing to show up at the EPA for months at a time when he did “absolutely no work.”  Instead, Beale exercised, worked on his house, and read about ways to discourage companies from damaging the environment. “I spent a lot of time reading on that.””

    Why didn’t they check his credentials before hiring him? Isn’t that a very common practice before hiring someone.
