Has the White House been suppressing science again, particularly about global warming? This afternoon , I talked with Paul Thacker of Salon.com, who investigated and found evidence of that at NOAA. Listen to the conversation here.

During the discussion, I invoked the name of George Deutsch, the 24-year-old political appointee who was forced to resign for doing this same thing at NASA. Phil Plait explained that story on my show earlier this year.
