      THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HAS CAUSED POLITICAL
      CENSORSHIP TO THWART ACTION OF THE EPA AND THE RULE OF LAW AS DEFINED
      BY THE UNITED STATE SUPREME COURT, TO KEEP US FROM KNOWING THE TRUE
      HARM OF GLOBAL WARMING.CHENEY IS LEAVING AS HE ARRIVED[7]
      In the early days of the Bush presidency, Vice President Dick Cheney
      came under attack for drafting a national energy policy in secret.
      Now, as the Bush presidency winds down, Cheney is again coming under
      attack for his behind-the-scenes efforts to play down the threats of
      global warming in order to thwart regulation of greenhouse gas
      emissions. [7]

      _________________

      CHENEY TOLD THE GOVERNMENTS SCIENTISTS TO LIE TO CONGRESS
      Some of the government's top scientists were forced by Vice President
      Cheney's office to downplay the health dangers of global warming when
      testifying before Congress, a former senior EPA official said
      Tuesday. [1]
      The story is a little confusing, but at its heart is the continuation
      of a campaign of lies and misinformation coming from our White House
      about the very real impact of global warming.[8]
      CHENEY HAS KEPT OUR EPA FROM PROTECTING AMERICANS GREENHOUSE GAS
      The issue of whether greenhouse gases endanger public health or
      welfare is significant because a finding by the EPA that they do
      would require the agency to regulate them under the terms of the
      federal Clean Air Act, spurring new rules across a range of
      industries.[3]

      THEIR WHITE HOUSE IS IN CONFLICT WITH OUR EPA
      An increasingly open conflict between the Environmental Protection
      Agency and the White House over how to respond to climate change
      intensified Tuesday with the disclosure that Vice President Dick
      Cheney's office sought to prevent a federal official from publicly
      discussing the health consequences of global warming.[2]
      CHENEY IS COMMITTING A COVER UP THAT SHOULD BE CRIMINAL
      A leading U.S. Senate Democrat accused the Bush administration on
      Tuesday of a "cover-up" aimed at stopping the Environmental
      Protection Agency from tackling greenhouse emissions.[4]
      WHITE HOUSE DENIES CHENEY'S LIES, NOTE THE ARE THE SAME PEOPLE THAT
      BROUGHT US THE WMD ARGUMENTS
      The White House denies any coverup and the agencies involved say they
      still got their message across.[1]

      BUSH LIES TO G8 IN JAPAN AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AT HOME
      The latest in a series of disclosures about internal disputes within
      the Bush administration came as President George W. Bush was in Japan
      with other leaders of the Group of Eight Nations to forge an
      agreement on combating climate change.But back home, Mr. Bush's
      critics contend that his aides are working to ensure that any actions
      his administration takes in response to climate change will have a
      limited impact.[2]
      SENATES ATTEMPT TO LEARN ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING BACK BURNERED BY CHENEY
      CENSORSHIP
      The testimony was part of an October Senate hearing on the impact of
      global warming.[1]
      Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), who chairs the Senate Environment
      Committee, leveled the attack today, accusing the vice president and
      other administration officials of "recklessly" seeking to censor
      testimony about the dangers of global warming and working behind the
      scenes to block new regulation. "This cover-up is being directed from
      the White House and the office of the vice president," she said. [7]

      U.S. SUPREME COURT RULED GREENHOUSE GASSES ARE POLLUTANTS
      Environmentalists, congressional Democrats and officials in more than
      a dozen states have sought to prod the EPA to reach a decision on the
      matter, following a Supreme Court ruling last year that greenhouse
      gases are pollutants and can be regulated under the EPA's existing
      authority. But the Bush administration has resisted, arguing that
      economy-wide regulations of such emissions could cripple the U.S.
      economy.[3]
      CHENEY DOES NOT WANT US TO LEARN HOW GLOBAL WARMING WILL HARM US
      Before the hearing, Cheney's office and the White House's Council on
      Environmental Quality wanted "any discussions of the human health
      consequences of climate change" deleted, said Burnett, a Democrat who
      supports Barack Obama, speaking at a news conference.[1]

      THE ADMINISTRATION WANTED THEIR REPORT TO BE THE SAME AS ANOTHER
      A White House spokeswoman explained in fall — when the changes were
      first revealed — that the edits were meant to make it consistent with
      a report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a
      United Nations-sponsored consortium of scientists who examined global
      warming.[1]
      THE ADMINISTRATION WANTED TO MAKE THEIR REPORT BETTER, FOR THEM
      But some of the passages deleted from the testimony of Centers for
      Disease Control and Prevention Director Julie Gerberding included
      health risks — hazards of poor air quality, for instance — that are
      in the IPCC report, said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., chairwoman of
      the Environment and Public Works Committee.[1]

      CLIMATE CHANGE IS HAPPENING AND WILL HAVE A BAD IMPACT ON HUMAN
      HEALTH AND FOOD AND WATER SCARCITY

      Boxer released documents today alleging that Gerberding's testimony
      nevertheless was altered, including findings that climate change is
      ``likely to have a significant impact on health'' as a result of heat
      and allergic diseases plus food and water scarcity.[5]"We now know
      that this censorship was part of a master plan" to make the EPA's
      response to a Supreme Court order that greenhouse gases were
      pollutants that must be regulated by the federal government "as weak
      as possible," Boxer said.[7]

      ANOTHER BUSH COVER UP HOW MANY MORE BEFORE THEY LEAVE
      Boxer called it "a coverup being directed from the White House and
      the office of the vice president." [1]
      White House spokesman Tony Fratto called her claim "absurd" and said
      Cheney's office weighed in as a matter of routine amid "conflicting
      views of scientists."[1]
      CDC spokesman Tom Skinner said Gerberding conveyed her message to the
      committee in October despite the changes.[1]
      "Any edits that were made to the written testimony were made during
      the routine editing process," he said in an e-mail. [1]
      CHENEY IS THE HEART OF THE REPUBLICAN EFFORTS TO GIVE THIS COUNTRY TO
      THE RICH
      [THIS AC T OF A ]...a member of Vice President Dick Cheney's staff
      altered the politically damaging testimony of an EPA colleague is
      only the latest evidence of Cheney's influence and power in shaping
      the nation's environmental policy.[3]Scores of interviews and
      government records showed that Cheney took on a decisive role as vice
      president to undercut long-standing environmental regulations for the
      benefit of business. [3]
      CHENEY HAS BEEN ANTI ENVIRONMENTAL SINCE DAY ONE
      Cheney's control over air pollution controls and the Clean Air Act is
      nothing new.EPA administrator Christine Todd Whitman famously warred
      with Cheney over a provision of the Clean Air Act, which allowed some
      of the nation's dirtiest plants to make major modifications without
      installing costly new pollution controls.[3]
      WHEN OUR GOVERNMENT CENSURES ITSELF TO KEEP US FROM KNOWING THE TRUTH
      WE SHOULD BE ANGRY, HERE AT THE REPUBLICANS
      Obviously, we'll see how this story plays out, though it does confirm
      many suspicions that censorship of global warming information is
      happening both knowingly, and at the highest levels. [8]
