The Bush administration is at it again. It is suppressing scientific views that run contrary to the administration’s line.
NO, WAIT! It’s the Obama administration that is conducting a war on science. It appears that the EPA has suppressed a report solely because it contradicted the president’s belief in imminent catastrophe due to global warming.
The Environmental Protection Agency may have suppressed an internal report that was skeptical of claims about global warming, including whether carbon dioxide must be strictly regulated by the federal government, according to a series of newly disclosed e-mail messages.
Less than two weeks before the agency formally submitted its pro-regulation recommendation to the White House, an EPA center director quashed a 98-page report that warned against making hasty “decisions based on a scientific hypothesis that does not appear to explain most of the available data.”
Not only was the researcher’s report not forwarded. He was told to stop working on climate change and to instead update the agency’s grants database.
This is all so confusing. I thought we were living in the era of change, of openness, of liberalism and tolerance!
