ABSTRACT
The article informs that a former senior administration official has accused the White House of subverting its Climate Change Science Program to serve political goals. Rick Piltz, who helped coordinate the $2 billion research effort, said programme assessments were being "misrepresented and misused". In a memo sent to government scientists and officials on June 1, Piltz singled out Philip Cooney, a lawyer and chief of staff at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, and chief climate negotiator Harlan Watson. Piltz said that Cooney had made hundreds of changes to scientific reports to downplay links between human activity and climate change.
