Top Climate Change “Expert” Admits He Is A Pathological Liar

The sky is falling, the sky is falling!

John C. Beale: EPA pathological liar
The sky is falling, the sky is falling!

No, you can't make up stuff like this.  Life is far stranger than fiction.

John C. Beale, the nation's top expert on climate change-- who also happened to be the highest paid official at the Environmental Protection Agency-- has admitted in court that he has trouble telling the truth.  Well, it's actually worse than that.  He actually admitted that he is driven to lie by a fierce compulsion, big time.  His "illness" was confirmed by his attorney and his therapist.

Mr. Beale is no Walter Mitty.  This man in charge of promoting climate change hysteria told lies so big that they defy comprehension.  In the process, he also bilked U.S. taxpayers of over a million dollars.

Question of the day:  If this kind of uncontrolled malfeasance can be expected of top government officials, should more and more power be entrusted to them?

Additional question of the day:  will this buffoon's pathetic story discredit the anthropogenic global warming panic represented by him?

No mention of Mr. Beale's party affiliation is made in any news report.  This omission naturally leads one to suppose that he is not a Republican.

Julia Sweig, Phil Peters, Arturo Lopez-Levy, meet your comrade and potential mentor....

Tommy Flanagan, meet your long-lost fraternal twin...

Tommy Flanagan, SNL Pathological Liar

From NBC News:

Climate change expert's fraud was 'crime of massive proportion,' say feds

The EPA’s highest-paid employee and a leading expert on climate change deserves to go to prison for at least 30 months for lying to his bosses and saying he was a CIA spy working in Pakistan so he could avoid doing his real job, say federal prosecutors.

ohn C. Beale, who pled guilty in September to bilking the government out of nearly $1 million in salary and other benefits over a decade, will be sentenced in a Washington, D.C., federal court on Wednesday. In a newly filed sentencing memo, prosecutors said that his lies were a "crime of massive proportion" that were “offensive” to those who actually do dangerous work for the CIA.

Beale’s lawyer, while acknowledging his guilt, has asked for leniency and offered a psychological explanation for the climate expert’s bizarre tales.

“With the help of his therapist,” wrote attorney John Kern, “Mr. Beale has come to recognize that, beyond the motive of greed, his theft and deception were animated by a highly self-destructive and dysfunctional need to engage in excessively reckless, risky behavior.” Kern also said Beale was driven “to manipulate those around him through the fabrication of grandiose narratives … that are fueled by his insecurities.”

The two sentencing memos, along with documents obtained by NBC News, offer new details about what some officials describe as one of the most audacious, and creative, federal frauds they have ever encountered.

When he first began looking into Beale’s deceptions last February, “I thought, ‘Oh my God, How could this possibly have happened in this agency?” said EPA Assistant Inspector General Patrick Sullivan, who spearheaded the Beale probe, in an interview with NBC News. “I’ve worked for the government for 35 years. I’ve never seen a situation like this.”
