U.S. behind curve on global warming | The Progressive

"The other report, released by the Union of Concerned Scientists -- the organization I work for -- and the Government Accountability Project uncovered new evidence that political barriers are hindering federal climate scientists from releasing and discussing their findings on global warming.
One hundred-fifty scientists reported at least 435 occurrences of political interference in their work over the past five years. Interference ranged from pressure to eliminate the words "climate change" and "global warming" in their communications to officials listening in on interviews between scientists and journalists.
Rather than trying to silence global warming scientists, whose research is funded by the American public, the federal government needs to listen to the experts, consider their scientific conclusions and take action.
Kathleen Rest is executive director of the Union of Concerned Scientists, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit working for a healthy environment and a safer world.
Hopefully now the interfernce will end, there will be World Peace, the cow will jump over the moon and G.W. will actually care about the common person.
Wonder which will come first.
