Weird Science

This just-released report prepared by the Democratic Staff of the U.S. House of Representative's Committee on Resources, of which West Virginia congressman Nick J. Rahall is the ranking minority member, details 10 examples from across the country of "the Interior Department's manipulation of science for political purposes" under the Bush Administration. Yes, this is a partisan report, and as such the author's may have gone out of their way to paint the Bush Administration in the worst possible light. But if the things alleged in this document are true, and I believe that they are, then all concerned conservationists and environmentalists should be outraged at the lengths to which the Bush Administration has gone to distort and misue science to advance their own political agenda. Furthermore, they should discard their cloaks of apathy and let their outrage be known by writing letters of complaint to their elected representatives. West Virginians might also want to write a letter of thanks to Congressman Rahall for bringing these issues to the attention of the American public.
