More Proof - Bush Admin Distorts Truth

ANDREW C. REVKIN of the NYTimes reports "A White House official who once led the oil industry's fight against limits on greenhouse gases has repeatedly edited government climate reports in ways that play down links between such emissions and global warming, according to internal documents."
The chief of staff of the White House Council on Environmental Quality Philip A. Cooney has been
distorting reports from experts since 2002. Mr. Revkin reports "In handwritten notes on drafts of several reports issued in 2002 and 2003, the official, Philip A. Cooney, removed or adjusted descriptions of climate research that government scientists and their supervisors, including some senior Bush administration officials, had already approved. In many cases, the changes appeared in the final reports."

This sleaze bag Cooney has zilch scientific training, but he was a lobbyist for the American Petroleum Institute where he represented the interests of the oil industry (who'd a thunk).

With global warming upon us and climate change on it's way, these scum bags are still dumbing down the
American people so the filthy rich oil barons don't have to change their money grubbing, planet killing ways.
