Many scientists at the US Fish and Wildlife Service say they have been pushed to alter or withdraw scientific findings on the protection of species for political reasons, according to a new survey. 

Fifty-six per cent of the 400 scientists who responded to the survey reported cases where 'commercial interests have inappropriately induced the reversal or withdrawal of scientific conclusions or decisions through political intervention'.

Do you believe President Bush and his cabinet forced environmentalists to lie about scientific findings, so the American government wouldn`t have to spend as much money on protecting the Earth?

I'd like to see this one of the top 5 priorities.

The environment should be the top priority, everywhere. It doesn't make any sense to argue about other issues really when we're all going to die of suffocation or poisoning if the environment deteriorates much further. George Bush needs to stop listening to businesses when it comes to the environment.

Probably not forced. But maybe threatened. The Bush administration is very talented at character assasination.

*laughs as she wonders when they'll ever give it up....*

I would hope Bush wouldn't do this to his country

I get the feeling Bush has a poor track record when it comes to the environment - not suprising really. How the hell did he back into power if no-one like him ?
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/30/05 - 9:10:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
he payed off senators to take away the votes of black people in the southern states.now,tell me,is that man a fascist or not?

what hasn't this man done?? he's the only president to fail in his rating for how he deals with the environment. he obviously has no respect for the environment. infact, he took away all funding for a project i've volunteered with for a few years, leaving us with lots of turtles and no funding.
