“Climate Science Whistleblower Award”


Alan Carlin

Winner of the Climate Science Whistleblower Award

Dr. Alan Carlin, now retired, was a career environmental economist at EPA when the Competitive Enterprise Institute broke the story of his negative report on the agency’s proposal to regulate greenhouse gases in June, 2009. Dr. Carlin’s supervisor had ordered him to keep quiet about the report and to stop working on global warming issues.

EPA’s attempt to silence Dr. Carlin became a highly-publicized embarrassment to the agency, given Administrator Lisa Jackson’s supposed commitment to transparency. Since 2009, Dr. Carlin has been an active and influential writer and speaker on the global warming issue.

It is with great pleasure that Don’t Tread on My Business presents Dr. Carlin with the Climate Science Whistleblower Award.
