Smithsonian officials altered Arctic climate change exhibit to cut link with human-induced warming (posting from Climate Science Watch)

Smithsonian Institution executives ordered a politically motivated rewrite of science in a 2006 exhibit on climate change in the Arctic, says Robert Sullivan, who was associate director in charge of exhibitions at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. The Associated Press reported that Sullivan, who resigned, says that, among other things, the text of the exhibit was edited to minimize the relationship between global warming and humans. Our own review of the exhibit finds that, in fact, it discusses climate change and its impacts on the Arctic but, with evident evasiveness, avoids ANY mention of human-induced global warming as a driver.
The exhibit can be viewed online.
This particular climate science scandal appears to be of the "anticipatory self-censorship" type, rather than a case of direct White House intervention. The Associated Press reported that Sullivan said that "Smithsonian leaders acted on their own. 'The obsession with getting the next allocation and appropriation was so intense that anything that might upset the Congress or the White House was being looked at very carefully.'"
However, the AP reported that Sullivan said the changes in the climate-change exhibit were requested by the highest Smithsonian Institution executives, including then-museum Director Cristian Samper and former Smithsonian Undersecretary for Science David Evans.

The AP reported that Sullivan said several scientists whose work was used in the exhibit objected to the changes, and that some curators and scientists involved in the project said it was apparent that science was not the only concern.
