Liberals Charge Harper with Censorship, Shutting Down Climate Website

Canadian liberals have charged Prime Minister Harper with following the lead of U.S. climate skeptics by censoring researchers and shutting down the government's main climate-information website.  They charge Harper's “Made in Canada” climate policy is a sham designed to cover up what they call an “Orwellian” campaign to suppress the truth about climate change.  Harper's actions follow by about a month a meeting with Frank Luntz, the American spin srategist who counseled President Bush to “keep the public confusted” about the state of climate science.
