    White House accused of twisting global warming data

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/01/....ap/index.html


    Survey:

    Scientists pressured to downplay threat
    The groups presented a survey that shows two in five of the 279 climate scientists who responded to a questionnaire complained that some of their scientific papers had been edited in a way that changed their meaning. Nearly half of the 279 said in response to another question that at some point they had been told to delete reference to "global warming" or "climate change" from a report.

    Are you saying the Bush Administration altered information or intelligence to suit there policy needs? Who would have ever believed a Compassionate conservative could do something like this.

    10 out of 10 conservatives agree: There is no such thing as global warming... and if there was... humans would have zero impact on it.

    Yeah this is some surprise. An administration that's cleansed the government of any checks/balances to its power is doing it again. From putting industry hacks in charge of bureau's intended to police those same industries, to firing fed. lawyers and replacing them with political hacks to this. That's how totalitarianism works--highly centralized, top down control by the executive branch.

    I was listening to this on AM conservative radio this morning. They calling all of the scientist quacks who claimed green house gas is responsible for global warming.

    I myself haven’t made up my mind as to what I believe yet, but I sure as hell wouldn’t call top notch scientist quacks just because I don’t agree with their standpoint. I do know this; no matter what the truth is, republicans are going to support the interest of the industries and the democrats are going to support the inverse.

    I don’t give a flying fuck what the politicians have to say about global warming and that includes Gore. I want to hear from the scientist only.

    Not a bit. All politicians these day server special interests; and, as a citizens, we're not special.

    I agree that science is the key to finding the truth and I don’t think anyone has the resources to thoroughly explore this subject. We don’t know if the earth is going through a natural cooling off stage or if this is due to our industries. Either way as I have said before it is a possible threat to our existence and all options should be explored and the truth should not be masked by politicians promoting their own agenda. Best I remember we elect these people to public office to serve us as a country and I can’t see how keeping info like this from the people is in our best interest. I vote republican and can’t blame my party for this damn disgrace we call our president. He calls himself a republican but is a snake that seems to get under his own countries skin more and more every day. Bush is a joke and global warming isn’t a democrat –republican issue where the two parties wait for one or the other to take sides so the other can take the other side. If this is a real threat (IF) then something needs to be done about it and we will not know what kind of a threat it is until it is studied more in depth.

    No no no, I didn’t mean the inverse as in us. I meant the inverse as in whatever the republicans support the democrats will say is wrong and support a counter argument.

    I was making a generalization. They sometimes agree, but for the most part, they take opposite stances out of spite. How many democrats support the republican’s environmental policies?

    Republicans and Democrats are two factions of the same group.
