Global warming...

is not something I give a lot of thought to. I think it is difficult to judge so-called climate changes with data gathered over a short period of time (very very very short time, in geologic terms). But I'm not here to argumentate about global warming. I'm here to point out this article, which states that our president and his administration appear to have been exerting some of their "political influence" (see my post down the page a bit for more info on that little concept) to get climatologists to say what they want them to say.

But really, it's not so much the overall content of the article (should anyone be surprised by this?) as it is the following little blurb contained therein, which I really don't know what to say except What???:

"...Cooney, who was a lobbyist for the American Petroleum Institute before becoming chief of staff at the White House Council on Environmental Quality..."
