The story is all over the Canadian press, but I haven't seen the same headline in the USofA media yet.

Bush aide's spin on global warming defended

Philip Cooney, chief of staff for the White House Council on Environmental Quality, edited several reports issued in 2002 and 2003 to cast doubt on whether greenhouse gases really cause global warming, the newspaper reported.

Cooney, a lawyer who once led the American Petroleum Institute's fight against greenhouse gas limits, joined the administration in 2001. He has no scientific training.

The Bush Administration downplayed the "science" on global warming, and played up the "theoretical" nature of the subject. So, now there's a "whistleblower" and a scandal.

People get too wound up about this stuff. It's all just a theory, anyhow.

Might nothing happen a'tall, you know. Lotsa times, nothin' don't happen

Anyhow. We got lots of studies from those nice folks in the oil business promising us it's all a buncha hooey.
