Controversy Over Global Warming Report and Resignation of Key Figure

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 14, 2005

On June 9, I posted Questions Surround Editing of U.S. Report on Global Warming, linking to reports on, and documents related to, the “editing” of climate change research prior to publication of a government report on the issue. Another relevant document associated with this story is a June 9 letter sent by Rep. Waxman and Sen. Kerry to the Comptroller General of the GAO requesting an investigation. Further, it was announced on June 12 that the author of the edits, Philip Cooney, has resigned, citing no association with the controversy. He has joined ExxonMobil.
