The Resident: Nepotism, dirty secrets at US Energy Department

In a recent report from the Energy Department inspector general, Greg Friedman, it was found that nepotism is open and widely accepted within the department. At a time when jobs are scarce and the environment is in peril, this kind of unfair – and actually illegal – behavior should not go unreported. The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) explores the story.

Our climate extremes are not only on our planet, they are solar system wide on other planets. Research it.

And what is your evidence to refute the 99% of scientists that agree that it's happening?

Man made climate change is real, research it.

Lori, I can't believe you are still touting Goldman Sachs CO2 Carbon tax in 2013.
Read Matt Taibbi's article 'The Great American Bubble Machine' from 2009.

Excerpt: 'Instead of simply imposing a fixed government levy on carbon pollution and forcing unclean energy producers to pay for the mess they make, cap-and-trade will allow a small tribe of greedy-as-hell Wall Street swine to turn yet another commodities market into a private tax collection scheme.'

You should explore the BIG 4 in Canada. PwC Ernsts and Young, Deloitte, and KPMG also practice nepotisim and are among the most corrupt business. Contributing to information leaks, banking fraud ect.

Except that NASA just proved that rising CO2 lowers the temperature not raises it…

It cuts across the whole of society,it's only natural. I've known a few sons of influential (in their own little spheres)fathers,who've done as reasonable a job as someone hired of the street.Most often all you need is basic intelligence and a good work ethic to be able to do any job.And they often cop it for being daddy's little helper,anyway.3 for 1 ain't good,but it's better than 4 for 1,or 5 for 1,or 10 for 1

Thanks Lori for revealing the secret behind lower IQ in Energy Department.

Nepotism is part of corruption in most European and Asian countries, keeping them behind America in innovation and creativity. It's a disease that spreads apathy and laziness.

Nepotism isn't just practiced in the energy department, it happens nearly everywhere in america. It's an open secret.

Well I would say your an idiot because I wrote about the co2 scam and not the military use of the weather. Use your brain and stop trinking cool aide

I mean, we say nepotism is unfair, but if you have unemployed members within your family, who are you going to hire? Your blood, or strangers?

Daisy Schmitt
Guest

you mean the scientists that are paid by the same who sponser Agenda 21?

Daisy Schmitt
Guest

Dude the Nasa is a governmental facility, therefore who pays the so called scientists, the goverernment. The same who are spying on you right now 😉

Modzw,

NASA omits a lot of info in most of their findings 9_9

Agenda 21 is a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regard to sustainable development. The UN has absolutely no power, the United States controls the UN essentially. What do you think their going to bring Canadian UN peace keepers in to take over the US or something? US accounts for more than 40% of world military spending. No one is going to fuck with the US. You might want to re-examine your mental health.

Are you saying climate scientists are spying on us? If so they should get back to work, this climate change is serious business!

Sorry RT but you fail on this one halfway backing fake environmental journalism. Yes nepotism should be rooted out. Yes the job market is worse. To tie it to fake global warming though is hideous.

if you think we can destroy the planet with CO2 your a fool humans will days the earth will live on replenish and clean itself, the planet saw a lot worse than humans

the CO2 levels were higher in medieval age.. were the knights and kings driving SUV's ? plants need CO2 to grow… that's why there was a golden age in medieval times… plants grew taller bigger more resistant… allowed for more people to live… which gave rise to an intellectual and scientific boom

Now that I"m over 60 you're telling me as an adopted, only child, the cards were stacked against me my whole life ? Thanks a lot.

Why don't you ask Al Gore, he earns billions of $ with this stupidity. Don't mix environmentalism with climate protection. These are two different things.

Daisy Schmitt
Guest

Right on! Roosevelt braught the Nazi's scientist to the USA and gess where they were stationed Rosewell 😉 Never heard of "Operation Paperclip"? Werner von Braun the founder of the Nasa was a Nazi^^

Daisy Schmitt
Guest

as serious as the billions $ that are taking away from your taxmoney and from the now non existing US industrie? Detriot is probably proud to enforce the climate protection. No work, no food but nice weather^^

Daisy Schmitt
Guest

Yea, come on, are you that stupid and naive? The US is only a shadow of it self. Corporations and the military complex are ruling in your country, so therefor there interests are binding not yours ask Monsanto and Boeing & Friends how much fun they have in Washington DC. Your american dream is a night mare. Stop trinking cool aid and use your brains!

Just in case you hadn't noticed, the US fed gov is the world's largest organized crime syndicate. They don't give a fuck about law.

CO2 is a good thing and isn't the cause of warming but the result. The sun controls the Earths climate not humans. If everyone used a little common sense and their own research and didn't take the mainstream media and their hidden agenda as gospel we would all be better off. They have finally figured out a way to tax the air we breathe!

Actually, the government is only the muscle. They real rulers are located at 33 Liberty St NYC. The moneychangers.

Immigration reform, green energy, gun control, unaffordable care act, are all about gaining power and increasing the size of Govt.. On behalf of the king and the socialist party.

Yes, those guys are the heads of the organized crime syndicate. Wasn't trying to imply the entire organization is inside the government, but thanks for going deeper. 😉

Co2 becomes lethal at 90,000 ppm don't buy into the AGW bs

Before the Great Depression & Stock Market collapse, Big Money had bought the government. Graft (including nepotism) ran amok. Massive push-back from the people helped, so did real "follow the money" investigative reporting. There were also books, later deemed "communist" which were actually anti-monopoly: The Wizard of OZ series, Citizen Kane, Catch22, Brave New World, 1984, Fahrenheit 451. Talk to people, tell your story & push back against Power&Money, or see the rise of fascism.

Why are we here?
Guest

On a side note, why is the host/presenter for this video so cheery and happy about these devastating, almost apocalyptic issues? This really isnt something to smile, let alone joke over. (that also goes for people on here who are in denial over these issues)

So depressing to read the climate deniers on here. Morons.

I believe in cc I just don't believe that human CO2 is the main driver

DystopianEmpire01

Agreed, it's been well debunked several times some people just refuse to listen. Overall pollution is real though, air and water quality down here on the surface where we live isn't exactly getting better.

DystopianEmpire01

"Morons." Ah yes, Dismissive blanket ad hominem attacks are always a sign of a superior argument. 9_9

DystopianEmpire01
Guest

It's for the psychological effect, it's a propaganda technique. And on a side note RT has a strong bias towards socialism that shows it's ugly head from time to time, their politics is quite clear and they mean to entice the idiots.

Thereallyuglytruth
Guest

As long as these so called " emerging economies" don't get strangled by what I consider overreaching enviro regulations that have destroyed US industry. They will keep polluting

Why are we here?
Guest

Agreed. though it still gets me how dumb they think/assume people really are, when relaying information through media, like we're still 5 year old children. its obviously the worst news ever, why even play with the emotions of people at this point?

Thomas Pickering
Guest

I think it's safe to assume is that this nepotism possibly applied to several other department's as well, this back scratchin and booty slappin has been going on for sometime, Texas for instance is saturated in it … and Thanx to Lori and RTA for highlighting this ….
