That was done by OMB under the GHWB administration. They wanted to
edit his sworn congressional testimony even when he was testifying as
a private citizen. He went along with the edits and then faxed then
Senator Gore to ask him during testimony if that was his actual
opinion. The exchange that followed was captured in passing during An
Inconvenient Truth. You were outraged when you thought politicians
modified science in the IPCC. Are you outraged now? The late Senator
Heinz (R-PA) was outraged and wrote a letter to the administration to
get them to reverse themselves. This was the start of a long
relationship that was a reason that the Heinz Foundation later gave
Hansen an award. It has nothing to do with Teresa's current husband.
