    Protests from experts show drilling moratorium based on politics, not science

    In justifying its broad moratorium on deepwater drilling, the Obama administration emphasized that the measure was recommended by an Interior Department report prepared in consultation with scientists and industry experts.


    The Obama administration's six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling is not the more targeted measure scientists evaluated and recommended.
    The May 27 report to President Barack Obama said the experts "peer reviewed" its recommendations, including the six-month moratorium and 22 safety measures.


    But eight of the 15 members of the review panel are charging that the administration misrepresented their position by suggesting they supported a blanket moratorium that they actually oppose. Their criticism, and the administration's response, are evidence that the six-month stoppage is based on politics rather than on science.

    That is quite alright, after all it is an elected Government that is doing the misrepresentation.
    So what else is new?
