The Environmental Protection Agency is stifling a report hostile to the agency's global warming agenda, a free-enterprise group revealed.

The EPA is keeping the report under wraps and silencing its author because the Obama administration is pressuring it to support carbon dioxide regulations, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy group dedicated to the principles of free enterprise and limited government.

The suppressed report warns that the EPA's adoption of the United Nations’ 2007 “Fourth Assessment” means that it is relying on outdated research and ignoring major new developments on the issue of climate change.

The enterprise institute, which released the report by analyst and economist/physicist Alan Carlin, explained that those new developments include the continued decline in global temperatures, a new consensus that hurricanes will not be more frequent or intense, and new findings that water vapor will moderate, rather than exacerbate, temperature.

Other new data indicates that ocean cycles probably are the most important single factor in explaining temperature fluctuations, though solar cycles may play a role as well, the institute said. Moreover, reliable satellite data undercut the likelihood of endangerment from greenhouse gases.

All of this demonstrates that the EPA should analyze the science independently, rather than just adopt the conclusions of outside organizations such as the United Nations, the institute said.

The institute's general counsel, Sam Kazman, explained its release of the report by saying, “While we hoped the EPA would release the final report, we’re tired of waiting for this agency to become transparent, even though its administrator has been talking transparency since she took office. So we are releasing a draft version of the report ourselves."
