Conflict of Interest

The Bush administration has been trying to argue that global warming is not happening. I had always suspected that it was because they were catering to oil companies, but now here's the proof. This is from the Washington Post:

Last week, the New York Times reported that a senior White House official had altered government documents to emphasize the uncertainties surrounding the science on global warming. That official, White House Council on Environmental Quality chief of staff Phillip Cooney, left the administration last Friday to take a public relations job with oil giant Exxon Mobil, a leading opponent of mandatory limits on greenhouse gas emissions.

Wow, can it be any more obvious?
