Science Alterations

Via Slashdot, the LA Times reports that scientists employed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have been “directed to alter official findings to lessen protections for plants and animals.” The findings are from a survey conducted by the Union of Concerned Scientists and Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility.

Bush and his team seem to favor a not-so-subtle altering of reality to fit their perceptions. Decide what the outcome should be and then find (or force) scientists to support it. Most of the electorate never know the difference especially given that most of the media doesn’t see a difference either.
