Absolutely no surprises here.

A White House official who once led the oil industry’s fight against limits on greenhouse gases has repeatedly edited government climate reports in ways that play down links between such emissions and global warming, according to internal documents.

W and his friends don’t believe in global warming. So, when some nasty old scientists provide research suggesting that it might actually be happening, the administration springs into action. They assign one of their hacks to rewrite the report.

One more example of how in politics – and other aspects of modern American life – facts are optional and subject to revision.
