Remember Philip Cooney? He’s the guy whos has been fingered by the NYT (as first commented in this diary by cscs and extended in this recommended diary by kissfan.

Well, he has resigned “for unrelated reasons”. Yeah right.

Climate row US official resigns (BBC)

A senior White House official has resigned days after he was criticised for allegedly playing down global warming in US government documents.
The White House said Philip Cooney’s sudden departure was totally unrelated to the allegations.

He was chief of staff at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

Critics say his alterations cast doubt on the link between greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, accepted by most scientists.

“[Mr Cooney] had accumulated many weeks on leave, and so he decided to resign and take the summer off to spend some time with his family,” presidential spokeswoman Erin Healy told AFP news agency.

This is part of a pattern of lies and deception from the White House. Together with the DSM scandal blowing (hopefully wide open), this must be pushed to show that the White House lies about just anything.

Let’s not give them a pass on this one.
