Happy Ending for Bush Environmental Advisor

Remember the White House environmental adviser who quit last week? Don't worry, he'll be alright:
Philip A. Cooney, the former White House staff member who repeatedly revised government scientific reports on global warming, will go to work for Exxon Mobil this fall, the oil company said yesterday.
Mr. Cooney resigned as chief of staff for President Bush's environmental policy council on Friday, two days after documents obtained by The New York Times revealed that he had edited the reports in ways that cast doubt on the link between the emission of greenhouse gases and rising temperatures.
While some energy executives have joined the ranks of environmental extremists by suggesting that they may have to change the way they do business, Exxon Mobil has been a stalwart opponent of any effort to limit greenhouse gas emmissions.
