Update 1/12/2021, 6:15pm EST: NOAA has now joined OSTP in disavowing this material, stating, “NOAA was not involved in the creation or posting online of the climate change flyers that have been allegedly attributed to the Office of Science and Technology Policy, nor does NOAA endorse the flyers.”

Update 1/12/2021, 3:45pm EST: The OSTP has now released a formal statement on these documents via a pair of tweets, and it’s an angry one. “Dr. Droegemeier was outraged to learn of the materials that were not shared with or approved by OSTP leadership,” the statement reads. “He first became aware of the documents when contacted by the press, As a result, Dr. Droegemeier took swift action and the individuals responsible have been relieved of their duties at OSTP.”

That would still leave Legates and Maue with positions at NOAA, but there is probably not enough time left in the administration for them to even establish a role for themselves in that agency, much less do further damage.
