Good ole' public relations

I guess he was becoming too much of a PR nightmare for the administration. Last week I intimated in my 'WTF is happening to science' piece about Phillip Cooney, the government employed lawyer who was editing scientific research to downplay the links between fossil fuels and global warming.

Have we forsaken respect for science this much that we are willing to
let a lobbyist and lawyer edit passages from scientific research?

You see, Cooney is a lobbyist, but not just any lobbyist. He once lobbied for the American Petroleum Institute. Yes, thats right.
Now, he's resigned. Why? Why of course, to spend the summer with his family. Orwellian isn't it?
