This paper, coauthored with Dr. Bryce Hannibal (ISTPP Assistant Research Scientist) and Dr. Arnold Vedlitz (ISTPP Director Emeritus and Distinguished Research Scholar), offers theoretical expectations, new empirical measures, and robust evidence for federal bureaucrats’ dominant participation, widespread presence, and central role in congressional hearings on global warming and climate change.
