Perry Officials Censored Climate Change Report

Kate Sheppard has a very interesting article on Mother Jones showing how Texas Officials, appointed by Rick Perry,  altered a recent report on sea level rise, erasing all mentions of climate change. At the bottom, you can compare the original and altered document.



UPDATE: The Guardian has more to say : 

Andrea Morrow, a [Texas Gvt] spokeswoman said in an emailed statement. "Information was included in a report that we disagree with." She said Anderson's report had been "inconsistent with current agency policy"
Yep, that's really what she said. Reality is "inconsistent with the current agency policy".
