[quote:be6ceff598][b:be6ceff598]"‘Don’t discuss polar bears": memo to scientists[/b:be6ceff598]
By Deborah Zabarenko, Environment Correspondent

WASHINGTON (Reuters) Polar bears, sea ice and global warming are taboo subjects, at least in public, for some U.S. scientists attending meetings abroad, environmental groups and a top federal wildlife official said on Thursday.

<snip>

Two accompanying memos were offered as examples of these kinds of assurance. Both included the line that the traveler "understands the administration’s position on climate change, polar bears, and sea ice and will not be speaking on or responding to these issues."[/quote:be6ceff598]

Repugnant.
