In Obama administration, transparency and science take backseat to politics

President Barack Obama has promised to make transparency the standard for his administration. He also pledged to base decisions such as our nation’s energy policy on science.

As reported on this site, the Competitive Enterprise Institute uncovered a series of email messages within the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that raise questions as to how seriously these goals are followed.

What happened is that an EPA analyst prepared a report that challenged the orthodoxy of global warming. His report was suppressed — until CEI uncovered the emails.

The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly A. Strassel explains all this very well in her article The EPA Silences a Climate Skeptic.
