The National Academy of Sciences has sanctioned White House Climate aide Jane Lubchenco for violating the organization’s code of conduct. She has also been suspended from their programs for five years.

Lubchenco is under fire for having edited a paper for the National Academy of Sciences that had to be retracted for faulty data and for having one of the authors being her brother-in-law.

Per Axios:

The National Academy of Sciences has barred Jane Lubchenco, a key White House climate aide, from involvement in NAS publications and activities for five years for violating its code of conduct before joining the administration, the organization said.

Why it matters: The move represents a significant rebuke to Lubchenco, who is deputy director for climate and environment at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

Driving the news: The NAS, the most prestigious science body in the U.S., said the decision, effective Aug. 8, stems from section 3 of its code of conduct. It states that members “shall avoid those detrimental research practices that are clear violations of the fundamental tenets of research.”

Lubchenco reportedly accepted the blame. But American Accountability Foundation founder Tom Jones has called for Lubchenco to be fired.

The American people do not deserve to have such a fraud as a top White House adviser.
