I think I see a pattern here...

The NYTimes is reporting today that the White House has "edited" an EPA report on the state of the environment to remove portions that describe the risks from rising global temperatures. How convenient! When a scientific study does not produce results that match the administration's ideologically-based predetermined conclusions - they just throw them out. I wonder if this was part of the reason that Christie Whitman decided to throw in the towel as Bush's EPA chief last month?

I suspect this same refusal to consider evidence that doesn't match a predetermined conclusion is also at the heart of the missing Weapons of Mass Destruction controversy.
