Welcome to Charge: the future of energy
It is the Bush Administration's latest attempt to make sure the fox is in charge of watching the chickens.
According to documents that the New York Times has seen, the man the White House put in charge of vetting government climate reports is a man who once led the oil industry's fight against limits on greenhouse gases.
And this man, Philip Cooney, adjusted these reports and sometimes, downright changed them.
Why is this of concern to an energy blog?
It is of utmost concern because the Bush Administration does not take the future of the planet seriously and therefore will never solve the energy crisis.
