The NYTimes says that a Report by the E.P.A. Leaves Out Data on Climate Change, because of edits done by the White House before the release of the report.

Agency officials said it was tentatively scheduled to be released early next week, before [agency administrator Christie] Whitman steps down on June 27, ending a troubled time in office that often put her at odds with President Bush.

If she is at all effective as a leader of the EPA, it’s not at all surprising that she would be at odds with Bush. President “let’s drill Alaska” Bush has not been a very environmentally conscious leader, and has certainly showed huge support for the oil industry.
