Suppressed EPA report suppressed for a good reason.

(I'm going to stop making grand claims about restarting this blog. Posting will continue to be irregular. That's life.)

I saw an interesting story on Huffington Post about an EPA report skeptical of global warming that has been "suppressed".

Realclimate has the rundown on this report. A sample:
So in summary, what we have is a ragbag collection of un-peer reviewed web pages, an unhealthy dose of sunstroke, a dash of astrology and more cherries than you can poke a cocktail stick at. Seriously, if that's the best they can do, the EPA's ruling is on pretty safe ground.
What's missing is a timeline. I wonder if this report was commissioned by the previous administration?

Not commissioned at all, per later reports; the guy wanted to do it and his manager said, well, okay. Then he turned in the stuff cobbled together from the PR sites and they filed it and forgot about it 'til the PR folks needed a rodeo clown, and they brought him out and hung him up.

Apparently nobody found the plagiarized stuff 'til deepclimate looked into it.
