    We’ve already heard a bunch of times about how our government is setting us back by manipulating facts. So much for our freedoms.

    Philip Cooney, chief of staff for the White House Council on Environmental Quality, made changes to descriptions of climate research that had already been approved by government scientists and their supervisors, the newspaper said, citing internal documents.

    Update: Wonkette has a little more on the subject. Accompanied with a lovely quote…

    Original scientist version: “Many scientific observations indicate that the Earth is undergoing a period of relatively rapid change.”

    Same version after a cool blast of Cooney: “Many scientific observations point to the conclusion that the Earth may be undergoing a period of relatively rapid change.”
