Mo’ Mooney, mo’ problems
Chris Mooney points us to the now-notorious memo (PDF) written by science whistleblower Rick Peltz. Turns out the tidbit extracted by Andy Revkin for his NYT piece — about Philip Cooney making direct edits to science reports — is just the tip of the iceberg. The politicization of the administration’s climate science program goes much deeper — it’s systemic, and pervasive, and irritating as hell. Check out Mooney’s summary of Peltz’s memo.
Also check out his follow-up on the reports Scott McClellan cited in his press gaggle the other day. Turns out McClellan was rather charitable to the administration in his gloss on the reports. Shocking.
