CEI Injects Suppressed EPA Global Warming Report into White House Science Proceeding

Requests OSTP to Do More Honest Job Than EPA In Assessing New Climate Research

Washington, D.C., July 17, 2009—.Will the federal government consider its own research on global warming as it doles out tax-funded research dollars?  The Competitive Enterprise Institute today asked the US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to do just that. 

In a comment submitted today to the agency on its ocean research report, CEI Senior Fellow Marlo Lewis asks it to consider a study initially suppressed by the EPA.  That study severely criticized EPA’s approach on global warming.  One of the major conclusions of the suppressed report was the ocean cycles appear to be the single best explanation of global temperature variations. 

“OSTP should be especially concerned about the possibility that other agencies and institutions may be so committed to certain points of view on these issues, that their procedures and assessments fail to fairly reflect new and contrary findings,” Lewis writes in the comments submitted to OSTP.

“In assessing these implications, OSTP should be especially concerned about the possibility that other agencies and institutions may be so committed to certain points of view on these issues, that their procedures and assessments fail to fairly reflect new and contrary findings,” said Lewis.
