Ex-EPA official: Cheney wanted cuts in climate testimony


www.usatoday.com

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Dick Cheney's office pushed for major deletions in congressional testimony on the public health consequences of climate change, fearing the presentation by a leading health official might make it harder to avoid regulating greenhouse gases, a former EPA officials maintains.
When six pages were cut from testimony on climate change and public health by the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last October, the White House insisted the changes were made because of reservations raised by White House advisers about the accuracy of the science.

But Jason K. Burnett, until last month the senior adviser on climate change to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Stephen Johnson, says that Cheney's office was deeply involved in getting nearly half of the CDC's original draft testimony removed.

Now this is interesting. I understand the idea of making sure it is good science behind a statement but to have actual 'testimony' removed is a bit suspicious. Especially when one has MANY affiliations with non-Global Warming friendly businesses.

This guy has been a plague on the world and I seriously cannot wait for him to leave office along with his little puppet.
