RIP Rick Piltz — George W. Bush White House Climate Science Whistleblower.

From 1995-2005, he held senior positions in the Coordination Office of the U.S. Global Change Research Program.

In the spring of 2005, Rick resigned from his position to protest the Bush Administration’s political interference with climate change communication. His whistleblower documentation of politically motivated White House editing and censorship of climate science program reports intended for the public and Congress received front-page coverage in the New York Times and was widely reported in the media. 

Rick testified before both the House of Representatives and the Senate at hearings on political interference with federal climate scientists.

Basically, the Bush II administration was caught editing scientific reports from the EPA. Piltz informed the public, and a scandal broke out.

It should also be noted that George Bush Sr created the world’s first federal level climate change research office in 1990 with the Global Change Research Act of 1990. His son, George Bush Jr., tried to shut it down. See also.
