Climate science was doctored
Just another example of the Bushies twisting things to fit their agenda.
THE Bush administration diluted scientific evidence of global warming, one of its former high-ranking officials has admitted.
Philip Cooney, an oil industry lobbyist now working for Exxon Mobil, conceded during a congressional hearing yesterday that while he was chief of staff of the White House Council on Environmental Quality he watered down reports on the adverse effects of man-made emissions on the planet's climate.
"My sole loyalty was to the President and advancing the policies of his administration," Mr Cooney told the house government reform committee. He defended aligning supposedly independent scientific reports with the White House political view on the environment by saying the changes reflected a comprehensive 2001 National Research Council report on the issue.
What can you expect from a bunch who supported tobacco industry claims that ciggarettes weren't harmful ( a claim many of them still make & are still supported by the same lot).
the administration gave the report some balance and fairness.
