*Acting chief scientist Craig McLean was fired from the NOAA in September

*McLean was dismissed after emailing new Trump appointees about the agency's
ethics policy, according to a NYT report

*The NOAA scientific integrity policy prohibits fabrication, falsification, or
the manipulation of research data to fit a political agenda

*McLean's email drew a sharp response from Erik Noble, the agency's new
Trump-appointed chief of staff

*Noble the following morning informed McLean he would no longer serve as the
agency's acting chief

*He was replaced by Dr Ryan Maue, a climate change critic and former researcher
for the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank

The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration's top scientist has been fired
after he asked new Trump-appointed staff to acknowledge the agency's scientific
integrity policy, according to a new report.

Craig McLean, the agency's acting chief scientist, was dismissed from his role
last month shortly after sending an email to the new political appointees,
including former White House adviser Erik Noble, the New York Times reported.

McLean had reportedly asked them to respect the NOAA's scientific integrity
policy which prohibits fabrication, falsification and manipulation of research
data driven to fit a political agenda.

The message however did not sit well with Noble, a former Trump campaign data
analyst who was recently appointed NOAA chief of staff.

'Respectfully, by what authority are you sending this to me?' Noble replied,
according to the report.

McLean responded that he was ensuring the agency's rules were being followed -
which was his responsibility as the acting chief scientist for NOAA.

The next morning McLean received an email from Noble informing him: 'You no
longer serve as the acting chief scientist for NOAA', the NYT said.

He told McLean the agency had already found his replacement while adding: 'Thank
you for your service.'

The NOAA would later appoint research meteorologist Dr Ryan Maue, a climate
change critic and former researcher for the Cato Institute, a libertarian think
tank.

A spokesperson for the NOAA told DailyMail.com McLean remains as director of the
Oceanic and Atmospheric Research branch, which he ran while serving as acting
chief.

Maue is a well-known climate change skeptic who in 2018 wrote an op-ed casting
doubt on global warming predictions from NASA scientists 30 years prior.

He has also challenged connections between climate change and extreme weather
events and most recently criticized Democrats for blaming the devastating
California wildfires 'solely on climate change.'

Maue joined fellow Trump-pick David Legates, who assumed the new role of NOAA
deputy assistant secretary last month.

Legates, a former geography professor at the University of Delaware, is also
known to be a climate change contrarian, having questioned the notion that human
activity is behind global warming.

The new political appointees has fueled speculation the Trump administration
could change the direction of the NOAA, which has mostly remained independent,
and could undermine scientific research.

Trump has clashed with climate experts over the last four years and has even
imposed stricter controls on communications at the NOAA - which is within the
Department of Commerce run by Wilbur Ross.

In 2019, the president was widely criticized by weather agencies after he
tweeted false predictions about the path of a Hurricane Dorian.

Trump claimed Alabama would be among US states that would 'most likely be hit
(much) harder than anticipated' by the hurricane, then one of the most powerful
Atlantic storms on record.

Within minutes, the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Birmingham,
Alabama, responded by saying that Alabama would not see any impacts from Dorian.

The controversy became known as 'Sharpiegate,' after Trump displayed a modified
NOAA map, which had been drawn on to depict the storm threatening Alabama.

The New York Times reported last year that Ross threatened to fire top employees
after the Birmingham office contradicted Trump and that then acting White House
chief of staff Mick Mulvaney had directed Ross to order the NOAA to disavow the
NWS tweet.

American science agencies used to
respected around the world for objectivity
and sticking to facts. Not any more. President
Sharpie has so corrupted them with political
objectives and science denialism that no one
trusts them.

When the Boeing 737 Max crashed in
Ethiopia 2 years ago they didn't send the
black box to the NTSB as normal since it
was corrupted with Trump appointees,they
sent it to the EU instead.

Even NASA was ordered to turn off it's
Earth monitoring satellites because the
data conflicted with political narrative
of the Trump administration.

All part of "making America great", you know.....

The POTUS said he would have appointed Jared Kushner or Ivanka Trump to the
position but since Global Warming is A BIG JEWISH CONSPIRACEEEE! It
represented a political conflict of interest.

He never would have been fired had he found a way to monetize climate change and
assign the rights to it to The Trump Organization.

It'd give Eric and Ivanka something to manage while dadums is in the slammer
getting his ass reamed by cellmates with names like "Mustafa" or "Mohammed"
