    Former Bush Gov't Official Admits to "diluting" global warming "science"

    http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au...1-2703,00.html

    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.

    I think this has been reported here. It's so unbelievable that for the last 6 years, this administration has kept a lid on this issue. However, it really seems to be in the open now.

    I read in the NY Times today that towns in New Hampshire are trying to pressure the federal government on climate change.

    Well, they put an oil lobbyist in charge of environmental policy.

    Irregardless is not a word, and you do not sound more intelligent using it.
