Climate change generating political heat

ABC News reports a whistle-blower group in Washington is blowing its own whistle over the White House and climate research. The group is the Government Accountability Project. They say they've been reading thousands of government communications on climate research.

GAP found numerous deliberate White House efforts to stifle research and public release of climate research results.

The U.S. House of Representatives Science Committee is holding a hearing on this subject on Wednesday. That's when the GAP report will be released. GAP concludes federal law may have been violated when scientists were restricted from talking to press or Congress.

Anybody got a database and spreadsheet big enough to keep track of all the investigations going on in Washington now?
