Brief Executive Summary
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform conducted a 16-month investigation into allegations of political interference in government climate change science during the Bush Administration. The investigation involved obtaining over 27,000 pages of documents, conducting hearings, and interviewing key officials. The report concludes that the Bush Administration systematically manipulated climate change science to downplay the dangers of global warming and mislead policymakers and the public.
